4 Reasons Why It Is a Good Time To sell your Home!February 10, 2010
reasons to sell now
ORLANDO, Fla. – Feb. 9, 2010 – Selling a property in this tough market can seem like a challenge. Here are four factors that actually make this a good time to post a For Sale sign:
• Sell low and buy low. Because all property values are down, the loss on the property a homeowner sells is really only a paper loss because the next property he buys also will be a bargain. If he buys smartly, when prices come back up in a few years, he’ll be in better shape.
• Down payment help is widely available. While nothing-down loans have disappeared, it’s easy to find down payment assistance for lower-income and first-time homebuyers. Programs vary all over the country, but one good way to find them is to search online for “down payment assistance programs” and the name of your region.
• Your Uncle Sam has money to share. Besides the $8,000 first-time homebuyer tax credit and the $6,500 move-up credit, there are an array of energy tax credits that can make home improvements pay off in cash.
• Good help is available. Really talented real estate practitioners, contractors and designers are available and eager for business.
