First Time Home Buyers

2/3/2009
FIRST TIME HOME BUYERS, We are in a time like no other. This is the opportunity of a lifetime. We have a large inventory of homes at values we have not seen for in years.  Add to this incredible interest rates, and first time buyer incentives, and you have an oppurtunity that should not be passed up.   But like so many good things, these advantages will not last forever. Many of the incentives will soon be ending. Like the $7,500 First Time Home Buyer Tax Credit is scheduled to expire June 30, 2009. Interest rates will also change.   Time is of the essence. If you are a First-Time home buyer there is no time like the present to purchase your home. 

Homes and communities

We are in some interesting times. We are fortunate here in the Midwest in that we have not been hit as hard as many other parts of the country. The Midwest does not seem to have the inflation or the deflation that we so often read about in other areas of the country. The good news is people are still buying homes. In fact a large percentage of people feel this is a good time to buy a home, because there is an inventory of homes at great prices, with good interest rates. and most analysts predict the market will turn around.

On the other end of the perspective. There are many people who are struggling to stay in their homes, under financial strain and are just sliding by juggle the day to day bills. Fortunately the government is moving quickly to resolve this crisis, and provide assistance to many of those in need. 

The US Department of Housing and Urban Development has always provided a great service in assisting people to realize the American dream of Home ownership, affordable housing, and building better communities in America. Today is no different. There are currently many programs to help people in the community with their housing needs. If you would like to learn more about the programs and services provided by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, Please click on the link below.
