The Numbers Don’t Lie – Now is a Great Time to Buy
“I would love to buy a new home and take advantage of the buyer’s market, but if I sell my home in the buyer’s market, I’ll be losing money.” Does that sound like a statement you have said over the past year? Honestly, I can’t imagine any current homeowner not thinking that statement at least once. However, if you really want to take advantage of the fantastic deals on move-up homes, then don’t let the idea of selling your home for less stop you because you will come out ahead in the long run. The math adds up to be in your favor, according to an article from MSNBC.com.
The MSNBC article interviewed a couple from Seattle who recently took the plunge and purchased a new home in the current housing market. They may have sold their Seattle condo for $20,000 less than what they would in 2007, but they got $86,000 off the suburban home they purchased. Be sure to read the article in its entirety to get specific details, but the gist of the story is that now is a buyer’s market and you should absolutely take advantage of the spectacular deals currently being offered.
Now, the MSNBC article referred to a couple in Seattle, but the story can easily transition into Florida real estate. Take for example the Lakeland golf community BridgeWater. Maybe you have always wanted to live in a golf course community or a master-planned community. Well, now is the time to seize this opportunity. BridgeWater offers an abundance of resort-like amenities including an 18-hole golf course, lake club, swimming pool, tennis courts, clubhouses and so much more. Plus, these Lakeland new homes are in an impeccable location only half a mile from I-4. Highland Homes offers spacious floorplans, both ranch and two-story, to accommodate the size of any growing family. So, stop hesitating, put your current home on the market and purchase the golf-front or lakefront new home you’ve always dreamed about. With Florida new homes priced from the $160’s, now is definitely the time!
