Gainesville Market is Picking Up !

Don’t be over whelmed with the Gloom and Doom on the news media. Our Real Estate market here in Gainesville is picking up….and right on schedule too.

It\'s a Buyers MarketOur busiest season is from April through September. Families start planning their move and begin looking for homes so they can “really move” once school is out. The student community that rolls into Gainesville has gotten started with searching for homes and condos too.

Many buyers may be coming to Gainesville for their professional careers, and they are starting to look now because of the low interest rates, the large inventory of homes that are currently on the market, and they are all beginning to realize that NOW IS THE TIME TO BUY !!

Don’t let the national press get you depressed about how things are here in Gainesville Florida ! Gainesville is Great!

A recent article in USA TODAY says that Gainesville has done very well in relationship to other areas in Florida.

If you have hopes & dreams of owning a home for the first time in your life, then pick up the phone and talk to your banker or a lender ( or call me). Find out if you can “qualify” for a loan. The FHA Program is great for buyers now! Getting pre-qualified on a loan, will empower you as a buyer.

Call me if you have any questions about Gainesville’s real estate market. I love working with buyers, so let’s talk about what you are wanting in a home!
