That statement alone is the key indicator of how much Connie wants to help you. Her natural desire to help her customers shows just how well she fits in with the Commonwealth Real Estate Your Way model of doing business with the Platinum Rule.

In fact, she uses her command of both languages to help customers understand more fully the procedures involved in the real estate buying and selling process.

Connie has been a small business owner, operating a full service nail salon. Not only did that ownership prepare her for the multitude of activities necessary for a demanding real estate career, it also gave her a strong foundation and sense of commitment to her customers. She gets to know her real estate customers personally and can, therefore, serve their needs more precisely.

Connie understands the strong pull many people have to move to the beauty of the Poconos, whether as a primary home or a vacation home. That pull called her here nine years ago. Connie welcomes the chance to help customers reach their real estate goals.

First-Time Homebuyers Need Guidance, Expertise

Just two weeks into the Chinese Year of the Tiger — many are wondering…Will this be the year that First-Time Home Buyers ROAR and purchase their first homes.

According to Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Economy.com, the answer is Yes, Yes, Yes. He says there will be 1.84 million homes sold to first-time home buyers in 2010, compared with 1.73 million in 2009. That’s good news for the economy and good news for buyers.

A few tips to those new to real estate who want to purchase a home:

1) From the National Association of RELATORS:
a. In order to take advantage of the Extended Home Buyer Tax Credit, you need to close by April 30, 2010. You can apply the credit to your 2009 taxes if you close and file your taxes on or before April 15 or you can file an amended 2009 return or apply the credit to 2010.

2) From the REALTORS at Commonwealth Real Estate Your Way with offices in Mt. Pocono and Stroudsburg, PA:
a. Find a REALTOR to work with. Do not try to purchase a home without the expertise, knowledge and guidance of a REALTOR. Using a REALTOR makes sense when its time to buy (or sell) a home. Particularly with the deadline for a major tax credit looming, many new to real estate will rush to judgment and make mistakes. For first time home buyers, REALTORS can look out for your interests and have experience negotiating and walking those in a real estate transaction for the first time through the process. REALTORS adhere to a strict code of ethics, they are constantly updating their skills, and they understand the marketplace.

It’s time to buy. There’s no doubt about it. The inventory is high, the prices are right and it you qualify as a first-time home buyer, the tax incentives are incredible.

Let this Year of the Tiger be your time to ROAR!
