Not sure if the Jacksonville-area market is the right place for you to invest? I’m sure you have been watching countless news stories about the industry, the market and various lending institutions. The Onslow County area never experienced the “bubble” so many “Chicken Littles” are running around crying over. The market isn’t falling here. . .and this is still a tremendous land of opportunity for the first time home buyer and more!
The general rule of thumb (note, not gospel and I will NOT garantee these results) in our local market is a minimum two years of ownership will ensure you turn a profit when you sell. When working with a buyer there are always three questions I know they will have: 1. “What will my monthly payment be?” 2. “What will my closing costs be?” and 3. “How much money do I stand to make when I sell this home?”. There are no pat answers, I would like to say I wish it were that easy but I’d be lying. I LOVE this job, there are no simple answers and every home, every family, every transaction is it’s own “animal.” There are too many variables to simply throw figures off the cuff at you and, if someone does, get it in writing!
There never was a rollercoaster market in the Jacksonville area. . .no peaks and valleys to weather. If you work with a true professional who can explain the market in regards to your sale or purchase so that you know the effects it will have on you, and your investment. . .you’ll be in good hands. If you ask your agent direct questions. . .and you get a deer-in-the-headlights stare back. . .keep looking.
I’m looking for a few great clients! If you’re looking for a REALTOR with answers, who wants to earn your business not simply for the deal at hand but to earn you as a client for life. . .I’m your gal!
