Realty 1st is excited to share that for the first time in 10 years, our market is on the REBOUND! The market has reached a point where it is a win/win for both Sellers and Buyers. Realty 1st can assist each of you with VIP service. I cannot express that its imperative that you use a professional that works for "YOU". Our team is currently accepting new clients and setting appointments with you on your future beach vacation. We have teamed up with www.itrip.net on discounted beach vacations, just for you!
Interest rates are still at all time lows and with our mortgage experience, we can properly advise you on the right company you should use. We watch the market each day as a "Stock Broker" views the stock
The market conditions currently are perfect if you are looking to purchase. Interest Rates are at an all time low and prices are at a point where you can positive cash flow even with a mortgage.
If you close within 60 days, this will enable you to place your property during the "peak season". For example, closing in February and acquiring a mortgage, your first payment would not occur till April. This will set you up perfectly to maximize the huge rental dollars that will happen in 2015. Projections are that the rental potentials will exceed the record breaking year of 2014.
We work with all types of buyers. Since 2011, our clients have seen a huge spike in profit margins with big appreciations.
