Home Sweet Deals
When it comes to real estate, foreclosures aren’t the only big story in the news. Builders and sellers are reportedly offering huge savings and massive incentives in order to pull in buyers and compete in today’s marketplace.
Business Week recently revealed that some big builders have been auctioning homes discounted by as much as 50% in selected markets, while other large builders have been providing up to $100,000 in savings and incentives. Many individual sellers are getting in on it, too, by offering incentives like special financing, plasma TVs, vacations, and even motorcycles, cars, and boats.
But, be wary. While there are many sweet deals to be found in today’s market, there are also scams, lemons, and unreliable builders, sellers, and industry professionals. Make sure that any deals or incentives you’re receiving or providing make sense for your own financial goals and needs. For home buyers and home sellers, this means working with knowledgeable, experienced real estate agents and mortgage professionals you can trust
