What Will It Take To Get YOU Off The Fence?

The Time to Purchase a Home

The Real Estate Market is making a comeback and not just in our area!  California, Florida and Nevada are markets that saw a substancial drop in property values and are rebounding.  I've said it many times, the Real Estate Market is like any other market/investment, it is cyclical.  We will have our ups and down times.  So how do you determine when the best time to buy will be?

I've personally always thought it best to buy when the market is low and sell when the market is high.  Most share that very thought.  Determining when the market is at it's lowest is a game that many investors and home buyers find themselves stuck figuring out.  The market has hit it's low.  In fact all indications are that it hit the low a few months back. 

Prices in our area are gradually moving upwards, interest rates are still very low and the Spring Market is just around the corner.  If you are thinking of listing your house in the near future, now is a great time to avoid the Spring competition.  The Holiday Season is ended and buyers are back to business. 

If purchasing a home it's a great time to do so as again you are eliminating competition.  A different type of competition then the Sellers will experience.  You are avoiding multiple offer situations in most cases by concentrating on your home search early in the season.  You will also experience great interest rates.

Now is the time to purchase and/or sell.

Nothing against Ms. Daywalt but this is pretty shameless advertising in a space that is suppose to be for "blogs". I don't blame her for taking advantage of it but I also don't think this sort of thing belongs in this section. The patch could be generating revenue by charging people to advertise here. Who the heck edits this site?

It seems you are not privy to the Real Estate Internet Laws that are enforced in the State of PA. As a Realtor I MUST state that I am a Realtor, I MUST state the firm I work for and where that firm is located, I MUST state that I am Licensed in the State of PA and I MUST provide a Main Office Number. This is true whether blogging, providing sales in the area or in a column. Unlike yourself who is hiding behind a number I MUST by LAW provide that information. The Pennsylvania Association of Realtors wants consumers to know who is providing a blog, advice or advertising. It's their law, not mine. If you are in disagreement with PA Law you can contact the Pennsylvania Association of Realtors in Harrisburg and let them know that you are not happy with them. I have already been cited once due to being turned in by a competitor for not having this information on a blog. Of course I am not suggesting that you are a competitor. :) Additionally I do advertise on the Patch in two separate areas and I PAY a substancial amount of money each month to do so. I am not taking advantage of anything. And where exactly have you been? I have been blogging this space for well over a year.
