All Signs Point Toward Improving Housing Market

In 2012, the housing market is continuing to improve as the U.S. economy moves forward on its slow but steady recovery. 

Demand in many areas and price points are now greater than supply and there has been upward pressure on home prices! In fact, there is so much good news to share that we are having a FREE MEETING on March 26th from 6:00 – 7:30 PM at our NEW! Showcase Realty Charlotte location to present it all!

These are just a few of the topics we’ll cover:

  • Housing market forecast for Charlotte, North Carolina, surrounding areas, and the United States 
  • How to buy a home for as little as 3% DOWN
  • Short sale update on how the process works and affects your credit score 
  • What is a HUD home and how you can go about purchasing one, along with awesome programs that benefit buyers! 
  • How to buy an investment property and simplifying the process with the right person guiding you!  
  • And MORE!!! 

All Homes 66% Off!

I’ll bet you’d stop if you saw this sign at a builder’s subdivision!  Believe it or not, the cost of a home really is 66% off! With low prices and low interest rates the same home bought in 2005 is three times as affordable today than they were in 2005!  The following example should help you understand just how good the deals are right now. 

If you borrowed $200,000 to buy a home in 2005 and got a loan with a 6% interest rate, the interest would cost $12,000 per year or $1,000 per month.

That same home today can probably be purchased for about half its 2005 value, so your loan would be $100,000. The interest rate wouldn’t be 6%, it would only be 4% so you would spend only $4,000 per year or $333 per month!  One-third the payment FOR THE SAME HOUSE!!!

Worried prices are still falling?  Wouldn’t it be nice to know which areas are still falling in value and which are increasing? I have statistical evidence of what is happening in every price range, property type, and neighborhood in and around Charlotte.

This information will empower you to make smart decisions whether you’re buying or selling. If you’ve been thinking about moving up, down, or sideways, there is no better time. Hurry before the market heats up when school lets out!

Plan to attend our Housing Market Update on Monday, March 26th from 6:00 – 7:30PM at Showcase Realty’s New Office in Southend Charlotte (1430 S. Mint Street Suite 106, Charlotte, NC 28203). Seats are limited, so register here to reserve your place. We will provide light snacks and door prizes to those who RSVP and attend!

A personal experience with our short sale specialist

“I would like to commend Michael Simonini of Showcase Realty for coming to my rescue and helping me favorably part with investment properties I had in North Carolina. In 2006, I purchased a few properties hoping to rent them but, was unable to do so; I found myself paying these mortgages on my own. After several years I was no longer in the position to continue making payments and therefore, started to receive foreclosure notices. For anyone facing foreclosure, you know how frustrating and difficult it is trying to work with your lender to salvage your credit and at the same time preserve your dignity. I reside in New York, which posses many challenges because I was not able to regularly travel to North Carolina in order to maintain these properties or meet with realtors to list these properties for sale.

“In December 2009, after countless hours of internet searches and telephone conversations trying to locate a realtor in North Carolina, I was referred to Showcase Realty by GMAC Mortgage. Showcase Realty was instrumental in successfully obtaining short sale on these properties. I am extremely grateful and fully satisfied with the high level of professionalism received from the staff at Showcase Realty. I can assure you, Showcase Realty will be by your side every step of the way in assisting to find a favorable solution for your situation. In the future, if I am in the position to purchase properties in North Carolina I will not hesitate to contact Showcase Realty. I am confident in highly recommending Showcase Realty for all your real estate needs.”
