CyberTips Newsletter – April 2009

Thank you for taking the time to read, I appreciate you.

I am going to start out with a question. If you are considering the purchase of a home, what is stopping you right now?

Let’s be honest. There was an article in the Tulsa World that mortgage interest rates are at 4.82%

There is abundant news about the $8,000 tax credit for first time home buyers.

Home prices in Tulsa are stable, with a slight increase being seen at these signs of spring.

I don’t know when mortgage rates are going to start rising again, but the tax credit is only good for houses bought before December 10th.

I have a firm belief in home ownership. It really doesn’t seem like the market situation could get any better. I always encourage folks to stop paying rent and build on their financial future, with the tax credit, it is a real no-brainer right now.

Who do you think of right now who is ready to buy or sell a house? Just have them contact me by phone or email and let’s get the process started.

Guess it’s a sign of the times.
