To Buy or Not To Buy….

To Buy or Not To Buy….

That really is the main question that I get all the time. Especially in today’s challenging
Tallahassee housing market. Should I buy now, or wait and see if the interest rates will go down
a bit more?

The answer is simple. This truly is a case, to quote my father, of “Don’t Look A Gift Horse In The
Mouth!” The FED is not going any lower. Interest rates are at an all time l

ow. They really are!!!
They are not going lower!!!! Now keep in mind, interest rates very rarely stay stagnant. They
almost always move. Now, if I am correct, and they can’t go any lower (and I am ) then they
will only move UP!!The time to buy is now. Think about it, the rates are now lower than college loans! If you
are looking to purchase a home, do it now. If your move date is not for 12-18 months, my
professional advice is to buy the home now, rent it for a year, and take advantage of a savings
that will amount to tens if not, hundreds of thousands of dollars in the future. And, worry not
about whether or not you can rent the property. Did you know that Tallahassee is one of the
top rental communities in the country??? With the Universities, the State Legislature, and this
being the Capital City, our rental community is vibrant. A nice, clean home, priced correctly, will
rent in Tallahassee in a matter of weeks.To buy or not to buy……..I think the answer is clear. Call us at Pro Players Realty, USA, to

Economy growing but could do better

WASHINGTON – Aug. 21, 2012 – Economic activity slowed during the first half of 2012, according to Fannie Mae’s latest economic report – but a housing recovery remains on track.

Inflation-adjusted consumer spending growth dropped nearly a percentage point during the second quarter to a one-year low of 1.5 percent, as spending fell in June for the first time since last August. However, strong July retail sales helped soothe concern of another pullback.

In addition, the July jobs report posted the strongest gain in five months with 163,000 new jobs created. If sustained, such job growth may bolster weak consumer and small business confidence, helping to offset headwinds presented by the domestic policy environment and European debt markets.

Still, Fannie Mae’s (FNMA/OTC) Economic & Strategic Research Group predicts modest economic growth through the end of this year, with a nod to existing risks that could change that forecast.

“The July data hasn’t changed our forecast for slow growth in 2012, but we’re increasingly focused on the looming ‘fiscal cliff’ near year-end,” says Fannie Mae Chief Economist Doug Duncan. “The debt ceiling debate … may spur further caution among consumers and businesses alike. On the bright side, we continue to see positive trends in the housing sector, which is showing signs of a durable, long-term recovery.”

The broad housing outlook has stayed generally positive. The expected increase in home sales in 2012 over 2011 remains steady at approximately 9 percent, and home price expectations for the remainder of the year are now trending upward.

Are you considering a move from Tallahassee to a new city?

Are you considering a move from Tallahassee to a new city? Maybe you’re trying to make the choice between two or three potential options. If so, how you visit your future home can have a dramatic impact on which one makes the final cut.

 

By making a few subtle shifts in how you prepare for your visit (and how you spend your time while you’re in town), you can gain more useful insight into the community.

 

Tip 1: Stay a week if possible

While a long weekend might be your only shot, you can get a much better perspective on a place if you have enough time to unwind. A mix of weekdays and a weekend is a great way to get a view of the rhythm of the town. If you have a long time to plan, visit the place in Summer versus Winter, too.

 

Tip 2: Rent an apartment or house

A family living in a hotel is expensive and automatically puts you “outside” the community. With a little more room and the facilities of a real living space, you’ll get a better sense of what it might be like to “really be there.” Plus, avoiding the hotel will keep you off tourist-trap areas and hopefully away from major highways.

 

Tip 3: Explore some on foot

Driving aimlessly can be a good “survey” technique (and indeed, getting lost is a good idea, too), but walking neighborhoods and downtown districts will give you a vivid sense of the community.

 

Tip 4: Get the local low-down

Before you go, find friends-of-friends on Facebook and other social media sites who can give you an idea of the must-see places that locals love. Use this list as your guide, not the tourism brochures.

 

Tip 5: Pay attention to what matters to YOU

Remember: You’re the one thinking of living there. Don’t let what others see as the main benefit to the town be what guides your decision to live there. Go with your gut, your values, and your comfort level!

 

By the way,  as an experienced Tallahassee Realtor, I’m glad to help you sell your  Tallahassee, Florida home prior to the move, and  refer you to a trusted agent in your destination city. Just get in touch!

What will it cost you NOT to buy in this 2012 Tallahassee Real Estate market?

?”How Low Can it Go?”

Do you remember the 12% interest rate days? In selling homes in Tallahassee I have had buyers, yes even in this market, say well, shouldn’t I wait to see if interest rates go down any more to make sure that I get the best deal possible?? Before I answer that question, let me mention something I learned recently.

As you may or may not know, Pro Players Realty, USA, in Tallahassee, puts on a luncheon every month to bring together local business people inside and outside of the real estate profession as well as any person who may have the slightest interest in buying, selling or investing in real estate. We always have a speaker and a nice hot lunch. At this most recent luncheon our speaker, Clay Shiver, spoke to us about decisions. The message was called “Bad Decisions Limit Future Options”. At one point during his presentation he made a point that I believe to be very salient to our question. What does it cost me NOT to move forward with a business opportunity???

I thought about that, and it hit me, we are approaching our decision making backward!!! We say ok, what does it cost? How much if…….??? So, interest rates are at the lowest they have been in years…..I ask you this question (yes I am posing a question to answer a question)….what will it cost you NOT to buy in this market?
