Springfield MO Real Estate!

We talk to people everyday who ask "how's the real estate market?" They want to sell but are fearful of the market. However, when we explain the opportunities out there the light bulb goes off! Now is the perfect time to get a great deal on Springfield real estate by selling low and buying low! Yes you read that right, sell low!

Okay I know nobody wants to sell for less than they paid. It doesn't make sense. Or does it? Think about it. Because all property values are down, the loss on the property a home owner sells is really only a paper loss because the next property he buys will also be a bargain. If you buy smartly, when prices come back up in a few years, you'll be in better shape. In the mean time, you get to enjoy a nicer home! 20% Off Homes

For example, If you bought a home for $150,000 and sell it for 20% less - $120,000, you've lost $30,000 (on paper!). Now the good part, if you buy a home that was worth $200,000 for 20% less - 160,000, that's a $40,000 discount!

This means you may be able to get a larger home with better features. Of course this won't work in all circumstances. We would need to discuss your own personal situation to determine what will work best for you. If you want to sell your home in Springfield, give us a call today!

So true and it is our job to educate the public about this fact.

The rest of the deal is that interest rates are probably lower than what they are currently paying, and if they have been in their home for 5 years or more, the feds might give them $6500 in a tax credit.

Clark, most sellers do need to be educated about this. They need to see the whole picture!

Larry, thanks for mentioning that! Interest rates can make a big difference in their payment too.
