Boca Raton Real Estate Buying Tips - Buying In A "Down Market"

Posted by Gloria Singer on Monday, December 1st, 2008 at 11:46am.

You have decided now is the time to buy since the cost is down, interest rates are down and the housing market has not looked this good for buyers in a long while. So, you are going to jump right in and purchase that Boca Raton real estate that you have been thinking about buying. Here are a few things you should know about the time you have decided to purchase your home. It is called a down market and that is one of the best times to buy.


Buying in a down market is one of the best times to buy. It is a financial gain because your home will gain value once the price starts going back up again. In a down market, foreclosures, short sales, and REOs are more plentiful. The home you buy that may need a little fixing up can be worth a lot more than what you are paying for it today. Before buying, make sure the home is not in a bad location that will either be hard to sell when the market goes back up or you would not want to live there.


Another good thing about buying in a down market is the seller is more willing to discount their home greatly. This is especially true if the house has been on the market for quite some time. They may not want to hold onto it any longer fearing the prices will drop even more. So this is the best time for the buyer because they have the upper hand when it comes to buying and bargaining.
