Act Now – Time is Running Out!!!

Time is Running Out!

The time is now for all of the first time homebuyers out there!  Why do I proclaim such a candid statement?  Well, there are only a limited number of homes that can close in the time that is required by the Federal Government tax credit for first time homebuyers!  Limited numbers, really?  Yes and the reason are that the other first time homebuyers are already capitalizing on the best deals in town!  If you want to be able to pick your choice of some of the best remaining homes, now is the time!

How long does it take to close a loan?  It depends!  For the most part, lenders need 30 days to close on a loan.  Although there are some out there like Stylecraft’s preferred lender, Wallick & Volk, that can get some loans done in 15 days!  So how does that affect the home buyer?  First, let’s look at our time line.  November 30th is the last day to close on a home loan that qualifies for a first time homebuyer.  So let’s assume the standard 30 days to close on the loan.  That takes us to October 31st to have your home picked out and contract written between the buyer(s) and the builder (seller).  With that in mind I am sure you are saying, well today is the 1st of October, so why the rush to pick a home?

Again, the best homes will go first!  Inventory is limited and we will have fewer and fewer homes for you to choose if you delay past TODAY in your home search!

So, where do you go from here if you are a first time homebuyer?

Come into your local Stylecraft Builders Model Homes to speak to one of our professional staff that can assist you in the process!  If you are not sure if you qualify, that’s ok.  Come on in and let us help you figure out the requirements for a home loan and see if we can get you into one of our Brand New Stylecraft Homes today!

Remember, time is really running out!  Are you going to let someone else pick your dream house before you?

Signs of emerging optimism concerning our economy….

October 6, 2009

Signs of emerging optimism concerning our economy…. NEW YORK – Toyota Motor Corp. will pour $1 billion into a major U.S. marketing campaign in the fourth quarter, as the Japanese automaker bets on a recovery in the ailing auto market here.

The sum is “more than we’ve spent before” in the period, spokesman Irv Miller said. The fourth quarter is typically a strong sales season for automakers, who often launch big end-of-the-year promotions to drum up sales of new model-year vehicles. Toyota rolls out its “Toyotathon” marketing and sales blitz in November.

“We see the economy is starting to strengthen a bit,” Miller said. “We’ve stopped playing defense. It’s time to go on the offense.” (MSNBC News 09/07/09)

We here at Stylecraft have never stopped playing offense. Oh sure, we made certain that processes were in place to ensure we were not wasting money and opportunities, but we never put our head in the sand, wishing it would all go away. On the contrary, we continue to forge ahead with a smart business plan to sustain us, ensuring we are here for our Buyers. A successful owner of a large hotel chain recently said that “a recession is not the time to stop putting out fresh flowers in the lobby”. The opposite is actually true! It’s with that attitude the Stylecraft continues to thrive.
