Homebuyer Tax Credit Expires TODAY!

No, this is not a last minute call to action.  Personally, I am glad that it is over.  I am happy for those that found homes they love and can benefit from the tax credit.  I am, however, most happy for those buyers who disciplined themselves for their situation to not just buy any house to get a credit but to wait and find the home that best fit their needs!  For some, it was easy to find a great house and reap the benefit of the tax credit.  For others, not so easy.  After all, it is one of the largest financial decisions you will make in your lifetime.

For now, I am ready for Sellers and Buyers to go back to a "normal" real estate market.  When I figure out what a "normal" real estate market is I will be quick to let you know.  In the meantime, we will work with our clients to best educate them for that important decision in "today's" market.  Whatever that may be!

If you're looking for competent and caring representation, we are here to help.  Give us a call at 816-246-7500.

I'm Lonely, So Lonely....

Play VisualTour
Once upon a time, there was a little white house perched on a lot

Located at 1702 Lexington Road in Pleasant Hill a charming home who has been lovingly sought.

A Buyer here and a Buyer there

Unfortunately could not find financing anywhere.

If its walls could talk it would lovingly share the memories it’s had

With those still to come making this home again glad.

With love, skill and finesse it’s been remodeled bottom to top

New flooring, appliances, paint and much more to make it pop!

Charm and location make this darling home a jewel

Is it possible you know someone who would think this home quite cool?

There is still ample time to capture the tax credit

We would love to work with you and will make sure you won’t regret it!

Just One More Comment About The Tax Credit....

The Sellers who took advantage of the tax credit were able to benefit this Spring.  Particularly those whose price range was around $150,000 and under.  What do I mean by that?  Good homes have flown off the shelf at competitive pricing as inventory has dwindled.  Buyers have rushed to meet the tax credit deadline.  The flip side of the Buyer's tax credit is that it was of benefit to Sellers whether they qualified for the credit themselves or not when they purchased their next home (move up or move down).  They have received quicker contracts and higher pricing!  Definitely good news!

There are still 18 more days to put a home under contract.  The deadline to be under contract is April 30th!  If you're on the fence, there is still time to get off!
