Spring time is usually a hot season for home buyers. When does Spring officially begin this year… the date is March 20th. It is a time when people begin planning for new beginnings, including a new home. However, I predict we may see a rush to Spring a little earlier this year. Many home buyers are going to realize the free money from the tax stimulus is scheduled to end on April 30th. Anyone who really wants that tax credit should really have there plan in motion well before the deadline. Trust me, you don’t want to wait until the last minute. There could be a problem for both first time home buyers, who will be eligible for $8,000 when buying a house, and those home owners who want their $6,500 tax credit for a change of address. That problem could well be a lack of available listings. The disappointment is going to be real when someone wanting to get into a house has a very limited number of houses to choose from. I believe the shortage is going to be caused by a combination of last minute shoppers and home sellers who are waiting too long to put their house on the market. If you are considering selling your house in the near future. Do yourself a favor and call me to get your house on the market now while we have this flurry of home buyers eager to get paid for their opportunity to stop paying rent to some landlord. For more opinion on this coming phenomena, read the article in USA Today. It recommends home sellers make their homes available to first time buyers. Call Wayne at 918-645-1470 or by email. [wpcf]
