If you are on the fence about buying consider jumping off. Now is a great time to own a home. Don’t wait! Don’t over spend and be a part of the American Dream today! If your home hasn’t sold it’s probably the price so talk to your real estate agent and get that price down where you can increase buyer traffic and hopefully receive an offer on that home.

“We can remain afraid to buy and let all of the great deals out there pass us by as the investors snag them all and rent them back to us until we’re ready to buy. Or, we can go and buy ourselves and take advantage of the instant equity that we can gain.” Nathan Hosier
This market may appear to be an intimidating time to purchase a home. However, whether you believe it or not, now is the best time to own. Home prices are as low as the home prices in 2004 and even 2000. You can essentially purchase a home at the 2004 prices and get a better interest rate than you could during that year and years close to it! Steve Harney and his team explain it well.

If you need to sell, SELL. Don’t wait for the market to come back. While you wait your home could depreciate more. In addition, you may lose your right to forgiveness of the debt. This special tax relief actually applies to anyone who has forgiven mortgage debt during the tax years 2007 through 2012. But starting in 2013, this tax break goes away. Whatch the Suze Orman video.
Shortsales are here to stay. If you must sell consider the shortsale.
If you can afford $800 a month for rent you could own a 2 bedroom condo or home selling around $49000 for the same amount including your real estate taxes. If this is you, call me. STOP FUNDING your landlord’s dream today and get on the way to home ownership. If you have questions ask them here or contact me personally.

Hot Topic! Is your home clean or messy? Tell the truth. Why is it clean or messy?
I live in the City of West Chicago. This city is east of St. Charles and West of Wheaton. My home is still worth more than what I purchased it for in 1997. However, it’s $30,000 less than what I could have sold if for in 2008.
