Have you out grown your Spring Texas house? Do you want to trade up but the economy keeps holding you back? If you are financially secure and are comfortable with the status of your job, then now is a great time to trade up.
The buy-low, sell-high approach works for the stock market and for the Spring Texas real estate market. The best time to buy is when inventories are high and the best time to sell is when inventories are low. Our current listing inventory is 32% higher than last year making it the time to buy.
The disadvantage of selling your Spring Texas house in a down market is you are not going to sell it for as much money as you would like. But you will make up for it by getting a better deal on the higher priced home you are going to purchase. Homes in the $400,000+ range have been taken a beating and there are some really good deals available.
With record low interest rates, that more expensive house will cost you less now than if you wait for the economy to fully recover. When the economy begins to show life and upward movement again, mortgage interest rates will be following right behind and moving upward.
Trading up in a down economy is not right for everyone. But if your job status is stable, trading up in a down economy is a smart financial move.

If you want a Realtor who will truly look out for your best interests, give you her honest professional input and who understands the Houston area market, she is the one. She is so knowledgeable in every aspect of purchasing/selling a home and she shares all of that information with her clients. We knew she was super busy, but she never made us feel that way. We almost felt like her only clients! She is just that good! She spends the time to get to know you and what you like and she is quick at picking it up. She will give you her honest thoughts, whether you like what she is saying or not, but you know it is honest and each time she was right! She is professional, compassionate, friendly, and definitely goes above and beyond for those she works for. I really don't think you can get better ;) We were referred to her by a friend and I will be forever thankful. She not only got us into an unbelievably beautiful home at an unbelievably good deal, she helped support us through a rough sell of a home in another state. I have so much respect for her and I think any prospective home buyer/seller would be lucky to have such a great Realtor guiding them through the process. Thank you Jill for everything you did! Especially taking care of my husband as you showed him homes :) read less
