JL's Columbia SC Real Estate Blog: 10 Reasons That You Should Wait to Buy in this Market

10 Reasons That You Should Wait to Buy in this Market

 With all the posts out there about how now is the best time in history to run out and buy a home, I thought it only fair to show you the reasons that you should not do so. The last thing this economy needs is for consumers to start spending money, that would actually cause the great deals to go away. Mainly due to the fact that it would cause the economy and the real estate market to recover, and at this point that's the last thing we need.

10-  Rent is fun to pay. I mean it's not at all like having to pay your own mortgage, why do that when you can pay a mortgage for someone else. If you went out and bought a home, there would be one less investor out there getting a free house with your money.

9- The amount of homes for sale on the market. There is no need to running out there when you have a ton of homes for sale at your disposal. You should certainly wait for the numbers to dwindle so you will have less of a choice you decide to buy. This will keep you from having to be so picky.

8- The great deals will be the first to go. This will be your indicator that you are getting close to time to start looking. All the good homes will be taken and then you can go sift through the left overs for what you can salvage.

7- Low Interest rates. Low interest rates will cause your mortgage payments to be lower, and this may make you feel like you are not doing your fair share. You should definitely wait around for those rates to rise so you can make a higher monthly payment. Then you won't have to deal with the guilt of saving money.

6- The price of homes for sale. Currently many homes for sale are on the market at very competitive lower prices. If you can manage to hang in there a little longer without buying a home, then you can catch market during or after a recovery. This means that you will get to pay more for the home than you would today.

5- With today's rates and prices, mortgages on many homes for sale are actually cheaper than rent on the same homes. Again this would possibly save you money, and that's not what you want to do. You need to wait for the prices to rise so you're not getting as good of a deal.

4- A 10% of the sales price tax credit up to $8,000. If you were to buy a home now,and you are a first time home buyer, then you would receive this tax credit. If you can hold out until next year, then you will be able to avoid this tax credit all together. This will save you the aggravation of trying to decide what to do with the extra money on next year's tax return.

3-Builder incentives. At present, in addition to the competitive prices, many builders are offering other incentives on new homes. Incentives like a percentage of of the home for sale depending on your employment and reduced pricing on upgrades. Some are even offering free upgrades and tossing in little extras that they normally do not offer in order to sweeten the pot. This would mean that you could get a great deal on a brand new home in your area, and that's the last thing you want. Wait for these deals to be snatched up other buyers before you even consider looking for your new home.

2- Lack of competition for you. Right now with many would be buyers sitting on the fence trying to make a decision, you would have your pick of the litter as far as the homes currently available are concerned. You need to wait until many more buyers are on the search, that way you can possibly end up in multiple offer situations and have to fight another buyer over the home you really want.

1- The pride of home ownership. There is no reason to come home to a home that actually belongs to you. Why not constantly come home to a house that you are buying for someone else.

 

 I hope that in some way this has helped anyone reading to figure out why you should stay on that fence. There are really too many great deals and incentives out there to subject yourself to making a decision as to which one you want. So hang in there and stay on those sidelines. With a little discipline and a little luck you'll be able to avoid all the great deals that this current market has to offer. Best of luck to you.

Posted by Kathy Dailey (Premier Denver Homes) about 9 years ago

Very funny, so tongue-in-cheek. But, as you well know, when people (and Lenders) get scared, they tend to crawl into their shell. But the brave ones, like Warren Buffett, realize that now is the time to act. WB is intrepid, not afraid. It's just a question of courage, don't you agree?

I'm going to read this at my office meeting on Wednesday... this is a great retort to all the wanta be players who have no stomach to get into the market... of course they didn't get in back in '97 either and thought we were all dense for buying then too... thanks ok... better for my buyers and my portifilo ... we can't all be winners.. gotta have the loosers out there!

Posted by Connie W about 9 years ago

JL, how true. In one section of my town the cheap deals have gone away. ^ months ago you could find a cheap one ever other day, not now.

 

Posted by John Palmisano (Keller Williams Properties Weston, FL) about 9 years ago

Doggone it JL I was thinking about going out and buying a home and now you have talked me out of it.  :-))

Good Points all my friend, hopefully you have convinced just one person to get off of the fence.

Hillarious!  You had me laughing out loud!  I don't know if some of my buyers could handle the truth to all of this without feeling foolish.  LOL!

Posted by Jenny Durling, For Los Angeles real estate help 213-215-4758 (L.A. Property Solutions) about 9 years ago

Dear J L,

I loved your 10 reasons not to buy.  I will share it with some of my clients.  There is one more reason you forgot to mention.  With all the money that the federal government is spending and planning to spend that they don't have, the inflation rate will skyrocket within a few years and everything (including real estate) will cost a lot more. It will go up in price along with construction costs and  everything else.  So, why would you want to buy now when the prices are low and interest is low when you can wait and pay a lot more later?

Great Blog,

Mac

 

Posted by David "Mac" Ward, Laguna Beach, CA about 9 years ago

Love the tongue in cheek humor.  Hopefully most people will get it.  I agree with you sentiments entirely.  In fact, I've placed a link to your post on my blog: http://sacramentorealestater.blogspot.com/.  I hope you don't mind.

I've got a couple of posts on my blog that discuss why it's a great time to buy.  Less humorous than yours, of course.

Posted by Michael Graham about 9 years ago

As a Charleston transplant in L.A., I have made all the same points you are making and want so much to believe.  But then I found that my buyers were losing out to multiple offers...sometimes dozens.  The good properties -- at least here in Los Angeles -- get snatched up way too fast, and for too much.  I call it The Myth of the Buyers Market.

Posted by Todd Coleman (Keller Williams RR Gable) about 9 years ago

Wow awesome post!  As a former stand up comedian two thumbs up.  I'm using this for my fence sitters.

I agree totally.  I am a landlord, and for the first time I have people asking if they can rent one of my houses - and neither of them are vacant!!  I like it that way - keep renting, everyone! (But really, I'm going to meet with one of my tenants to see if we can get her into a house of her own.)

Posted by Joetta Fort, Independent Broker, Homes Denver to Boulder (The DiGiorgio Group) about 9 years ago

Enjoyable post. At first glance I was very confused, but after reading further it became clearer. I too am a landlord so I am somewhat on the fence here.

Humor is a good tool.  Good post.  Give people something to think about.  I have told people the minute we get the headline PRICES GOING UP or MARKET IS NOW TURNING my phone will ring of the hook, but by then the change will be three months old and the doom and gloom media just picking it up.

GREAT POST!  I wish I could use it!!?  Here in Southern Ca. specifically Riverside/SanBernardino County's prices are still trending down.  Lenders are still taking off 5% on appraisal because of that fact!  Even my Investor clients are having a tuff time.  My pitch is;  If you can afford to own the home and you plan on staying for a while, then buy.  This is without a doubt, the greatest buying opportunity ever-Period!

JL - When I first started reading this blog, I thought you had been smoking the "funny stuff" when you wrote it. . .and then I GOT IT:-)

Posted by Myrl Jeffcoat, Greater Sacramento Real Estate Agent (GreatWest Realty) about 9 years ago

Great post JL! OK if I print and use it as a hand out at my open houses this weekend? Here in Rochester NY we are one of the few areas that have not been crushed, we are actually up a smidgen! And the builders are giving great incentives. So our buyers really should get off the fence. 

Our transaction volume is down a lot, like 20% but our pricing is stable, at least right now. And I am already ahead of ALL of last year (hmmm, can't remember, what year was that?). Our inventory is down - we are seeing emails from agents that have buyers looking for properties, and they can't find what they want, so looking for new listings as soon as they hit.

I really enjoyed this and had a great laugh - especially since my son and his girlfriend are looking for a house in Endicott NY, and I was thinking the same thing - should they, shouldn't they? Our one big concern is they are new hires (June 2008) at Lockheed Martin, so if they get laid off, that could be a problem.
