Free Money! I know your parents always told you that if something sounds too good to be true, then it probably isn’t true. Sound advice – but in this case it’s really true that you can get $8,000 free dollars with few if any strings attached. All you have to do is buy the brand new home you’ve been dreaming about for the last six months 🙂

What’s the catch? You have to be a first time home buyer and if you’re married make less than $150,000 per year.  There are other specific conditions (it’s a government program after all) so go to for complete details.  Be sure to read the section that says you don’t have to pay the money back.  Also check out the picture of the smiling family on the web site – obviously they got their free $8,000.

If you are reading this blog you’ve made the sound financial decision to invest in a brand new home. The only question is when. You’ve done your research and processed all the information you can to make an intelligent, informed decision.  Why not act now and get $8,000 dollars to do something you were already going to do?

We’ve talked about how stable our local real estate market is. You know interest rates are the lowest they’ve been in years. You also know that the current combination of reasonable home prices and low interest rates will not last. Help your fellow countrymen and do your patriotic duty – buy a brand new home and put people to work! Help kick the economy back into shape!

By the way – did I mention you get $8,000 dollars FREE if you buy a new home now?

Unless you’ve been on a desert island for the last year you’ve been bombarded with negative media reports about the real estate market.  It’s true that in some markets home prices have taken a real beating.  But the classic statement “location, location, location” about real estate still holds. 

Home prices remain strong and stable in our local area.  The B/CS market ranked eight in the nation for price appreciation in 2008.  The same national firm also concluded that the B/CS market was at minimal risk for any price devaluation.  This supports what we’ve known for a long time – that Bryan College Station is a great place to live!

We are blessed to live in an area with stable employment and strong population growth.  Projections show the local population doubling in ten years.  These trends support the strong performance our real estate market has enjoyed in the past and bodes well for the future. 

Don’t let the national news scare you away from owning a brand new home! With mortgage rates approaching all time lows home ownership is more affordable than ever.  The current combination of low mortgage rates and stable markets in a growing community creates a perfect opportunity. Chances like these come along once in a lifetime – take advantage now.
