It's a Great Time To Buy A Home

We apologize for our long absence but The Boehmer Team is in full swing in the St. Charles Real Estate market.  It is a great sight to see the sales board at our Prudential Select Properties office filling up with sales.  Agents are busy in the office, the phones are ringing and deals are getting done!  It appears that home values are stabilizing and appraisals seem to be coming in at acceptable levels.

At our office sales meeting yesterday, we were fortunate to have the President and CEO of Prudential Select Properties, George Bruns speak to us.  He talked about why it is a good time to by a home.  As agents, we see first hand the benefits of buying a home in today’s market.  My favorite quote came from John Paulson.  John Paulson (born December 14, 1955) is the founder and president of Paulson & Co., a New York-based hedge fund.  Just a few years ago Mr. Paulson was not in favor of purchasing

“If you don’t own a home, buy one. 
If you own a home, buy another one.
If you own two homes, buy a third. 
And, lend your relatives the money to buy a home.”

There are many reasons why it is a good time to buy and we are seeing buyers come out of the woodwork to take advantage of historically low mortgage rates and outstanding home values.  We are seeing homes of all prices ranges on the sales board as well, it is not just first time home buyers.  It is a welcome sight to see $300,000 to $450,000 homes selling in a timely fashion.  Great marketing, fair market pricing, clean/well maintained homes, staged/well presented homes and hard working agents….this combination is a WIN, WIN, WIN for everyone!
