If you live on Mercer Island, take advantage of this market to sell your home and buy that dream property before interest rates get any higher!
If your home sells for less than it would have at the peak of the market, the home you buy will also go for less than it would have. And your monthly mortgage payments will be less than they would have been – possibly the same amount you are paying for your present home. This is the ideal time to sell and buy on our beautiful Island. And it’s also the ideal time to help purchase property for your adult children. If they are first time home buyers, or if they haven’t owned a home within the last 3 years, they will be able to use the $8,000 tax credit as a down payment. You will be able to supplement that with your gift to them, and you’ll even have the option of buying down their interest rate. They will be better off than if they just rent a home, since they’ll get the deduction and the appreciation not available to renters. And they’ll also be able to customize the home to their lifestyle – also not possible for those who rent. If you want a complete itemization of the benefits of owning versus renting, please contact me and I’ll be happy to send it to you.
We have such an incredible assortment of homes available now – there is something for everyone! We have amazing waterfront properties, where you can moor your boat, have a refreshing swim after work, and enjoy gorgeous lake and mountain views from your home. We also have great view homes (Lake, city, sunset, and mountain views), newer homes, and homes with fantastic play yards, fruit trees, and outdoor entertainment areas. Living here is such a pleasure! Last night we enjoyed a wonderful block party BBQ, with our great neighbors and their adorable children.
Since my listings here have sold – I have an excellent track record of getting my listings sold even in difficult markets — I’m looking forward to marketing and selling your home for you. Over my 30 years of selling Mercer Island and Eastside properties, I have developed unique methods of bringing a home to life, highlighting your home’s unique “personality” and target marketing to your potential buyer.
Please contact (phone, text, email) me when you are ready to make your move.
