We're wrapping up 2009. Despite all the doom and gloom national news about real estate, we had a great year in our real estate market (Hampstead, Wilmington, Jacksonville, Topsail Island NC). Our team and all our agents are in the process of finishing up our 2010 production goals. We're shooting high, and I continue to be very optimistic about our local real estate market. The truth is, we live in a wonderful place that has so many attractions. We have the various beaches, downtown Wilmington, the aquarium, and a growing movie industry. The bottom line is that people love to come to Wilmington and the beaches for vacation, the holidays, or just weekends where they can get away.
Although the national news may still continue to spew bad news, I still remain optimistic and positive about our market (By the way, I do not watch the news, because it's just too negative. I keep up with the news that I want to know about on the internet, and I get it from legitimate news outlets that don't spew all the fear and garbage just to get ratings). People love our area and they're not going to stop coming. There has never been a better time to buy homes or land. Prices are extremely low, and a higher supply of inventory has brought prices down to reasonable levels. Sellers have had to be realistic in the marketplace in order to sell their homes. Interest rates continue to stay very, very low. That's a great combination that makes it a great time to buy, or great time to "buy up."
And of course, there is still the $8,000 tax credit for first time homebuyers, and the $6,500 tax credit for those who sell an existing house and purchase another. So as the year winds down, holiday wishes from all of us here at Stephanie Gasparovic & Associates, Inc. and let's all hope for a great new year!
