If you got out of the game back in October when the kitchen was getting hot (due to high buyer interest trying to beat the tax credit clock).........right now you may want to check back in till the end of the month!
Here is what I am finding......crickets are chirping all over town in the dead of winter: keys are in lockboxes, less liklihood of running into other agents while looking at homes, offers are getting countered or accepted, life is busy and good for the buyers that are looking right now! There may be no heat on but it's better than looking in July when there is no Air Conditioning in these homes!
Don't find yourself playing "beat the clock" if you are seeking the up to $8000 first time and move up buyer tax credit. (go to the IRS website to see if you qualify) Right now may be the perfect time :)
