You're getting great advice here. "NOW" is always the time to sell as you cannot recover time. I would insert one word of caution and another positive, though. Cautionary: If you need to rent in Ascension Parish you may want to research ahead of time. You are likely aware of the high demand and low supply of rental properties here.
Upbeat:: T he federal government is offering "first-time homebuyers" (defined as not having owned a primary home in the past three years - IRS details lined below) an $8,000 tax credit. The credit was expanded in 2009 for homes purchased in 2009, increasing the amount of the credit and eliminating the requirement to repay the credit, unless the home ceases to be your principal residence within the 36-month period beginning on the purchase date.
Now the "good news" ... This program is deadlined on November 30, this year! We expect a strong market in the early FALL which would normally not be the traditional cycle. There is huge pent-up demand for home like yours from young couples beginning their families. . Let's face it, we all procrastinate especially when national news is incorrectly influencing buyers in south Louisiana. This considerable incentive -EIGHT THOUSAND DOLLARS!- will push these buyers who have been waiting and watching into action.
My advice would concur with the other you have gotten here. List NOW!
