Thing of Buying? Better Get Crackin’!
If you’ve been thinking about buying a home in the Birmingham or Shelby county area, be aware: the clock is ticking…
The government’s Tax Credit for first time (and many existing) Buyers ends April 30th.
Under current rules, that’s the last day you can have a Contract to buy a home in place and still be eligible for the credit.
Have you been ‘on the fence’ about buying?
Here are some of the reasons proving why buying now is such a good idea:
Whether you’re buying an existing home or want to buy a brand new home, we are seeing some excellent opportunities to own a home in just about all areas in Shelby County.
In a number of cases, we are seeing such attractive pricing that—provided you meet certain Lender qualifications—you could own your own home, instead of paying rent.
So, if you’re planning on staying awhile, it doesn’t make sense to rent when you could own your own home.
Since buying a home can easily take 30 to 45 days or longer, and since the Tax Credit is set to expire in about two months, it’s time to jump off the fence!
