Charleston AFB Home Buyers
GET OFF THE FENCE!
In the Charleston AFB real estate market, there is substantial opportunity for buyers to snag great deals. So, if you are one of those “on the fence” buyers, it is time to cross over and TAKE ADVANTAGE of these great deals.
Here are 4 reasons why you gotta take the leap.
1. Mortgage Rates – Charleston AFB mortgage rates are still low at about 5.25%. This WILL NOT last forever. Why take a chance that the rate will decrease? It will most likely increase.
2. Repairs and Inspections - In the Charleston AFB market, sellers are more willing to negotiate for repairs or offer financial consideration or concessions for inspection items. When the market turns, there will be many more sellers not willing to do anything. Of course if a seller agrees to sell a property for a great price, there will not be too much negotiation room left for repairs.
3. Summer PCS Season - We are approaching the Charleston AFB high PCS season. Many Charleston AFB homes for sale are getting bought – and FAST. Many of these Charleston AFB properties are selling below market value and the supply will not last forever. You may be surprised to see the prices on Charleston AFB homes.
4. First time home buyer tax credits of $8,000 – Charleston AFB buyers have until the end of November to close on a property and take advantage of this incentive. This is no longer an interest-free loan; you won’t need to pay it back! These are incentives that rarely come along to home buyers. Remember as a first time home buyer you may qualify for an FHA loan, which allows down payments as low as 3.5% on your Charleston AFB home.
