Thinking of selling, buying or investing in Chattanooga real estate in 2019?
Let the Bekah Cochran Team help you develop and implement a plan for success!
Here are some points for planning to buy, sell or invest in 2019:
1) Get in touch with your lender. If you do not have one, now is the time to start interviewing. Did you know that you could qualify for financing opportunities through specialized programs? Now is the time!! The more information (and the more prepared) you and your lender are, the easier it will be to achieve your goals.
2) Drive around. See what is out there, familiarize yourself with the areas that you are interested in buying/investing. Home buyers – does the community fit your needs? Investors – what are the average rental rates and rental trends for the area you are looking?
3) Do your taxes. Yes, some folks are fortunate enough to get tax refunds. The sooner you file, the sooner you can get your refund. Did you know you can use that money toward a down payment on a home? A tax refund is also a great means to make home improvements to increase the value of your home. Not to mention tax incentives for first time home buyers!! Get in touch with your financial advisor, accountant or a tax professional today to learn more about tax incentives for investing and home buyers.
