With the home buyer tax credit that has been in place for several months and now has been extended and expanded for even longer, more and more people are buying their first homes. The expanded tax credit even gives many current homeowners a break if they want to sell their homes and buy a different one. Lower prices and interest rates are also fueling this fervor. Multiple offers are not uncommon anymore. We have even seen a few bidding wars break out for popular properties.
Getting that first home can be intimidating. And this can also be true if you have lived in your current home for many years and have not had to deal with the home buying process. It can also be an issue if you are moving to another area of the country, as many in Zephyrhills do. Since the laws, regulations, customs, and geographical features, etc. can be very different from place-to-place, having a guide to lead you through the process can be a big help.
There is a show on Home & Garden Television that deals with first-time home buyer jitters and could be a big help for many of you. Below you can click on a link to see a full-episode of this program. Others are also available and you can watch them according to your own schedule. Kind of neat!
