One of the most famous Questions. When is it a good time to buy?

July 21, 2017

So no matter if I am standing in Bayside Queens, Bushwick Brooklyn, or Valley Stream in Nassau county it never fails this question has to be asked. 

I have now been doing real estate 14 years and it will be a hard question for the customer to acknowledge and want to hear it. 

There are many factors that go into when its a good time to buy a house.  The interest rate could be zero and some of my clients or customers might not be ready to buy. So is it a good time for them? 

They could have a large down payment and be missing a solid job for the last 2 years. Would these people be ready to buy? 

You have amazing credit and missing downpayment money, are you ready to buy? 

So everyone is different to make a long story short. I would say its a good time to buy when you have all the requirements to get a mortgage or if you that lucky and have all CASH! 

I say this because 95% of people need a mortgage. So you will need at best 3.5% downpayment money to do an FHA loan.  Have a steady job these are things that a loan officer needs to get you pre-approved and prepared to buy a house. 

I could point you in the direction right now to get a 25,000 grant in Queens and Brooklyn, email me to get details.  I would say sit with me for a consultation to see if you're ready.
