2010 Real Estate Advantages that will work for you!

Dream homes are on sale in New York City!

Did you know that . . . Interest rates and FHA loans can work for you

• Buyers are experiencing record low rates on mortgages; some fixed mortgage rates have recently dipped below 5.0%

• NYC properties are definitely experiencing price ‘adjustments’ (translated ‘reductions’), even at the very high end

• The federal government has extended the home buyer tax credit into 2010; the deadline is now April 30 for signed contracts, and June 30, 2010 for closings. Not only are many first time homebuyers eligible for this benefit, but also some repeat buyers are eligible*

• FHA mortgages can require as little as 3.5% down, without perfect credit*

When necessary, there are re-hap loans available through FHA with purchase of homes*

Real Estate Dreams In 2010

Almost everyone has a real estate dream. Think about it. I bet you do too.
And 2010 can definitely be your year to find the home of your dreams.
My job as a buyer’s/leaser’s broker is to help you do just that by finding out what you want and extensively combing the real estate marketplace to identify promising prospects; acquiring information about the real estate market and your targeted property and helping you negotiate with the seller or landlord’s agent to protect your best interests. In this way you gain value in acquiring your home. The New York State Department of State clearly defines the roles of buyer’s and seller’s agents.
