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.
