You donâ€™t need to be smart to buy real estate all you need is a purpose and the means ." No ticky no laundry.â€
For some the time is now for some that day will never come.
Why am I smiling ?
For I am buying today
And why do I sing?
Why does September
Seem sunny as spring?
Why do I get up
Each morning and start?
Happy and head up
With joy in my heart
Why is each new task
A trifle to do?
Because I am living
A life full in my house .
This was in the news recently.
Inventory has increased. We can lay blame on the lenders. Money is tight, which seems odd if economists and policy makers think that housing is holding back the economy. To sell more homes, buyers need financing.
Maybe investors are more active in Florida. That wouldn't surprise me.

The majority of what you see pending are "short Sales"; I have seen these close in 12 days (I closed on this one with my buyers) or as much as 2 years.
So who is buying, folks who are serious about buying, those who have decided to take advantage of ths market. Inventory has been reduced substancially and I believe that sellers are finally listening to the market and adjusting their pricing accordingly.
My advise as always, if you like the property, make a serious offer and see where it takes you. Your REALTOR is your best friend; listen.
Good Luck to you.

I can introduce you to the client version of our multiple listing service, which gives accurate information about available, pending and closed sales. It also offers lots of other information, including demogtaphics, maps, financial calculators, school info. etc. All I need is your name, email address and criteria (number of bedrooms, baths, area, price goal, etc.) and I can set up a custom account that will help you accurately navigate this market and find the best values.
I have 20 years local business experience and make it my business to help you find the best properties, or sell yours for the highest possible price. Don't worry, there are still plenty of good buys out there! But, they are becoming more scarce..I agree it's time to get off the fence and take action.
There are on record 2 million agents that fit this scenario. Even if they sell just one house a year there is 2 million homes that sold with the help of a Realtor. Pretty amazing number of homes sold by just average hard working realtors. The problem Dale is those realtors have little or no income than the sale that they made that year.
No unemployment benefits no insurance they are not even considered unemployed. They are just watching their passion and their career being destroyed in front of their eyes.
It is time to stop looking and start buying. Now I given you two reasons. We sell lot of homes to a lot of people.
For every home we sell we create work for at least four people. Our industry is the backbone of this country. The foundation for our market is affordable homes and jobs for those that buy them.
So when should you stop looking and start buying? The key is not in the price you pay nor in the interest rate you are charged but what is the cost to you per month.. When you rent is $1200 per month and that is all you can afford. Why would you rent if you could own for the same price.
Hopefully you already bought a property in 2011 and don't have to get caught up in the current FRENZY with buyers (or more) competing for almost every property.
I truly appreciate my fellow Realtor's answers. Many don't realize or consider what we do for our economy and how passionate we are to help individuals with their dream of home ownership. All while guiding and educating them with one of the largest financial decisions they'll make in a life time. People should look at the whole picture individually and take note of what makes sense for them and their family and not focus on what the media has to say. If Renter's don't Buy, Investors will and Rent them out to those who won't. Buyers should ask themselves...Who's mortgage would I rather pay? Mine or theirs? If one isn't able to qualify for a "traditional" mortgage at this time due to credit issues and lender restraints, why not do a Rent To Own? It can be a Win-Win scenario for all parties involved.

GREAT deals is certainly describing it! People are making out like bandits, snapping up properties that were selling for lots more just a few years earlier. If anything, now is the time! Here's who we are selling these great deals to:
First Time Homebuyers who can finally afford their piece of the pie
Cash Investors who know better then to pass up a deal like that
And of course, there are always people who are buying second homes or vacation homes, who are taking advantage of today's buyer's market. They are buying their own piece of paradise at an unbelievably low cost!
If you would like to take advantage of today's market, we are glad to help. Please feel free to call or email me today!

This market segment is red hot! First time home buyers, consolidated household purchasers, pre-retirement purchasers, foreign buyers, and let's not overlook the cash investor who is eyeing anything they can get at 60%.
Great interest rates and incredible prices have energized the opportunists while the nay-sayers look on. Dale, if you are looking for a great deal, get your ducks in a row then contact your real estate professional.
In Somerset and Morris counties (NJ) the buyer pool is diverse, as it has always been.
I am working with:
- 1st, 2nd and 3rd time home buyers
- Buyers that have been in their existing homes for 15+ years and are looking to make a lifestyle change
- Buyers with children that are approaching 1st grade or high school level and want to be in a certain school district
- Cash investors
- And those individuals that are simply looking for a project
The primary difference is that what once was out of reach for many buyers in my area, has now become a reality and they are not afraid to go after it.
Good Luck with your search!
