Boomerang Buyers

by The Peggy Graves Team

If you lost your home due to foreclosure or short sale recently you may have already fulfilled the wait time needed to qualify for a mortgage. The wait time used to be 5-7 years but new FHA guidelines now allow some buyers to purchase a home as soon as 12 months after their foreclosure. 

79% of people who lost their home are looking to buy again

41% of people have higher incomes now than when they first purchased

63% of people report that they have lowered their household debt

46% of people report a desire to purchase a smaller home in a lower price range than before.

This is not only positive news for buyers, but sellers as well. The low housing inventory we are currently experiencing creates less competition for sellers and a more qualified buyer.

If you have questions about buying/selling or financing. Contact The Peggy Graves Team 731-225-6920 | Coldwell Banker Real Estate Now 731-668-1777.

 

Think You've Missed Your Chance To Sell Your Home? Think Again!

by The Peggy Graves Team

 Fall is actually a great time to sell and there are several reasons why.

1. Inventory is low. Right now we have buyers who have been out there looking all summer and have just not found the home they've been looking for. If your a home hits the market and is priced right it will sell quickly, sometimes bringing multiple offers. In particular, homes with an acre or more or land are in high demand. If you have been thinking of selling your home, now is the time to list.

2. Mortgage rates are still very low and will most likely remain affordable for a while. This is good news for potential buyers who are in the market for a home. The jobs economy is showing improvement, and mortgage rates are trending to raise slightly as well, so now is a great time to buy.

3. You will have less competition since fewer homes are listed in the fall and the buyers who are out there looking are serious because they've been searching for a while with no success.
