First Time Home Buyer Tips

The Montgomery Alabama Real Estate market continues to show great signs of recovery! And with our Median Sales Price, and Average Sales Price, still running close to $140,000, First Time Home Buyers should take a look at using FHA Financing. With a Minimum Down Payment of 3.5% of the purchase price, AND more lenient Qualifying Ratios than Conventional Financing, home ownership is still very attainable.

AND with a sweet program called "FHA Step-Up", a buyer's out of pocket money to buy a home is greatly reduced.


IN ADDITION, in the Montgomery area, the Sellers's will often pay the buyer's Closing Costs! So if you are thinking about buying a home and not sure where to start, let's talk! Pick up the phone and call me. 334-324-9485 Or Contact me now:

How Is Your Weather? The Weather is Great for Real Estate in Montgomery Alabama

This is the beginning of April, 2013...and our real estate in Montgomery Alabama is really getting exciting! Our housing inventory continues to fall, and sales continue to lead last year in a big way. And both of these are good indicators of positive things to come.

And we are seeing these same indicators all across the United States. Of course, we in the real estate business are always quick to point out, "real estate is like the weather....it's local". However, quite a few top real estate "forecasters" have been predicting a housing shortage has been rapidly approaching.

So my personal predictions, based on over thirty years of experience watching the good times and the bad times of our business, are that if you've been sitting on the fence about buying or selling a home,
NOW is the time! No matter what market you live in, ask around "how's the weather here?"
