The June 2010 Real Estate Market Report for Alexandria and Northern Virginia was released earlier this week by Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage and the news continues to be positive for the most part.
Dominating the news was government legislation that extended the closing date for the Tax Relief Credit. Purchasers who were under contract by April 30 now have an extra 90 days to close on their home purchase.
For home buyers who could not take advantage of the tax credit, the time is still ripe to purchase a home. Interest rates are holding at all-time record lows, offering an excellent opportunity to get into the market.
The message here? If you are financially stable and if your credit rating is in order, don’t wait or you could miss your opportunity.
