So here we are in another Hampton Roads summer, the kids are out of school and there are lots of activities going on all over the region. Soon it will be September and you will be saying, where did summer go? The same thing is happening to that $8,000 tax money you have been hearing about ... the offer to get it (FREE) expires on November 30th, 2009, and you have to be "closed" on a home by then to get it. Since it can take 3 to 6 months to get qualified, find a home, get an offer accepted, do the neccessary steps required to "close" on it, the time clock is ticking away on this too. Ideally, first time homebuyers (or those who have not owned a home in the past 3 years) need to be already under contract by September to assure they can get that $8,000. If you have even thought about buying a home, please consider doing it while the government is giving away FREE money! Call a REALTOR* today. Sure you can buy a house anytime, but right now you can get $8,000 just for doing it now!

Ok, so if you live in or around Hampton Roads Virginia, you are aware of the massive problems this past week at the Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel. The Virgininan-Pilot dubbed it "Carmageddon". Here's an idea toward the solution: (from a REALTORS* perspective) If people lived in homes closer to their jobs, there might not be so many cars on the road in the first place. Imagine how much gas and time those folks could save, not to mention impact on the environment. Are you one of the thousands who got caught up in all that mess? Think now might be a good time to consider buying a home closer to your work? Was that your sign? Eliminate that awful daily commute altogether! Why not? Home loan interest rates are low ... If your a first time home buyer, you could get back up to $8000. in tax credit ... the selection of homes is incredible and there are bargains to be had. Now may be the perfect time to get that larger home you've been wanting or downsize to save money or because the kids are all grown up. Contact me and let's at least explore your possibilities.

I have been so busy with first time homebuyers, and they all want to capitalize on that $8000 tax credit (rebate) offered. They know they have to find homes and close on them before November 30, 2009, to claim that money. So the rush is on! There are so may available homes and choices and so many sellers willing to help buyers by paying closing costs that buyers are really reaping the rewards of buying a home in this day and age. If you have given any thought to buying ahome or wonder even if you could buy a home call me, let me help get you connected to the people who can help get you there. If you can buy a house, now may be the best time in your lifetime to buy one. Low interest rates on loans, great selection, bargain prices and sellers paying closing costs for buyers ... it doesn't get much better than that! Really. Contact me to get started.
