Welcome to Florida Homes Realty Professional Group...one of the most informative web sites for the Orlando, FL and Tampa, FL real estate markets. Our goal is to provide you with important updated information that will help you with your home search, as well as, your decision in purchasing a new or pre-owned home. After all, buying a home is one of the most important decisions you will ever make.
If you are considering buying real estate in the Orlando, FL or Tampa, FL real estate markets, NOW is the time to buy!
On April 30, 2010 the $8000 tax will expire, but there are still a lot of great reasons to buy a home now. And, if you're in the MILITARY or a part of the Intelligence or Foreign Service personnel the tax credit extends to April 30, 2011. Please know there are some restrictions and requirements in order to qualify.
Since NOW is the time to buy a home, let's talk about the abundance of options. Our MLS database is full of resale homes, short sales and foreclosures. Magnificent prices on all. When buying a resale home (pre-owned) the contract is strictly between the owner and buyer; in a short sale, after the owner accepts an offer, that offer has to be approved by the owner's lender before it can close. Short sale transactions do take quite a bit longer, so if you're in any kind of hurry that's not the way to go. Bank owned properties, aka, foreclosures process much more quickly. Unfortunately, in most cases, the property needs at the very least some TLC. In a lot of cases the appliances are missing, flooring needs replacing and the list goes on.
The one option that we have not addressed is buying a NEW HOME. Builders have already built numerous spec homes (aka inventory) and want to get new homeowner's into them as soon as possible. That means a huge savings for YOU, the buyer. Builders are negotiating deals beyond belief right now. Some examples; discount pricing, closing costs paid, upgraded appliances, zero lot premiums, several thousand dollars in upgrades at no extra cost, not to mention that the home is new; you have all your warranties in place, and these new homes are energy efficient. Florida Homes Realty Professional Group has a vast knowledge of the new home builders and what they have to offer. Let us put our knowledge and experience to work for you!
This is still a great homebuyer's market! Don't let the expiration of the tax credit discourage you. It's being projected that mortgage interest rates will be going up and be around 6% by December 2010. While rates are still low, now is the time to buy. Very soon now, sellers (including new home builders) will no longer be allowed to contribute 6% of the purchase price towards buyers closing costs. That is a new FHA change coming soon, so don't miss out!
