Have you been considering putting your home on the market for a while now? A lot of home owners are waiting until the weather warms up and school lets out to list their homes BUT they could be missing out on precious buyers who are ready to take advantage of the home buyer tax credit before its expiration! (Such buyers must be under contract on or before April 30th.)
I found this article on Yahoo Real Estate that points out some great ways to potentially increase the sale price of your home- with minimal investment! Remember: if you have lived in your home 5 of the last 8 years, you too could be eligible for the tax credit (of up to $6,500)!
Given the amazing interest rates right now, and the tax credit CURRENTLY in place, NOW is really the time to be putting your home on the market, in order best position your home for a sale by this spring! In fact, the author of this article points out that this spring could be the "most pleasant experience for a home seller in the last four or five years"!
