Nashville New Homes: Good times ahead for Landlords.

Buying a home isn’t for everybody.  If you are not sure about your current job, marital status, or a host of other varibles, you may be better off just renting a bit longer until your life settles in.  It may also be that you are self-employed and find it hard to obtain financing with all the changes in the mortgage market.  Or, through no fault of your own, you may have lost your job and not been able to pay everything on time every month over the past years and now your credit score is hindering your ability to get a home mortgage.

For those that do not fit any of the above scenarios, but are still renting for whatever reason, you really should give serious consideration to home ownership.  Read more here:

Rising costs are based on supply and demand.  The cost of many materials used in the construction of new homes are increasing.  The price of oil effects the cost of everything too, and we all see what is happening there.  Good news for prospective home buyers – these rising costs have not been passed on to the consumer – YET!

But at some point they will be.  If you don’t believe me, perhaps you can believe Warren Buffett:

First time home buyers can still purchase a new home with zero cash out of pocket.  So can eligible Veterans when using a VA loan.  And don’t forget, certain members of the US Military may still be eligible for last year’s $8000 tax credit!  Here it is direct from the IRS website:

  • Members of the military and certain other federal employees serving outside the U.S. have an extra year to buy a principal residence in the U.S. and qualify for the credit. Thus, an eligible taxpayer must buy, or enter into a binding contract to buy, a principal residence on or before April 30, 2011. If a binding contract is entered into by that date, the taxpayer has until June 30, 2011, to close on the purchase. Members of the uniformed services, members of the Foreign Service and employees of the intelligence community are eligible for this special rule. It applies to any individual (and, if married, the individual’s spouse) who serves on qualified official extended duty service outside of the United States for at least 90 days during the period beginning after Dec. 31, 2008, and ending before May 1, 2010.
  • So get out there and explore your possibilities!  It doesn’t cost anything to look.  But it might cost you something if you don’t…on the first day of every month!
