A Double Whammy

Everyone knows that the tax credit "under contract by" date is April 30, but a lot of folks don't realize that coming soon, FHA funding fees will increase. So many people rely on FHA loans for their home purchases, and when that upfront fee increases, more cash will be required to close. You can get MORE house NOW for the same amount you will be able to get LESS house for LATER. If you are on the fence, jump off and call today!

Turnkey in Winston-Salem

I have just put a 2BR home on the market in Winston-Salem just off Hwy 52... talk about a dollhouse! This all brick ranch with vinyl trim (so no painting needed ever!) would be perfect for an empty nester or maybe a young person just starting out. It has 2 good sized bedrooms, a large bath, a spacious living room, and the kitchen is open and airy and bright -- when you turn the corner to enter, you will be surprised! The owner has meticulously maintained it while she has lived there, and the lot... oh my goodness! The front yard is plenty big enough, but the backyard would accomodate a garden, playset, trampoline, AND swimming pool! The home also boasts a nice storage building, a patio in back, an attached 1 car garage, and wonderful neighbors. Visit 5626 Plantation Drive on today!

Not Much Impact from Repeat Buyer Credit
It sounded like a great idea three months ago: Hand homeowners a $6,500 tax credit to find a new place to live, giving a thrust of energy to the housing market's recovery. So far, however, people are staying put.
