Interested in owning your first home?
The time for action and expert consultation is now! At present, there are more affordable homes and condos on the market than previously noted. To make matters more enticing, the average time spent on the market has increased, translating into a favorable opportunity for negotiations in terms and closing costs.
In years past, homes fitting this description have been difficult to obtain due to the majority of them being quickly swiped up by cash investors looking to turn a proﬁt. However, a recent rise in construction costs has made the process less appealing for many, creating the perfect conditions for potential first-time home buyers.
The market is currently on your side! Lenders are looking to offer FirstTime Buyer Assistance programs, allowing potential buyers an easier transition into their new homes. The city of Asheville has also established a program dedicated to Down Payment Assistance, providing $1.4 million to qualified individuals and families to help them buy a home.
Among the leading concerns of potential buyers is that they would be unable to come up with the down payment required to seal the deal. With all the new programs available there is no excuse for you not to enjoy the benefits of home ownership, and to begin building wealth for yourself and your family. Please feel free to reach out to me if you have an interest in acquiring information on how to get started with the process.
