Don't Call it a Seminar...Its a Give Away

Every year I somehow catch the "world famous" Bride Dash at Filene's. For those of you who may not know, this is when Filene's department store in Boston discounts their bride's dresses to the ridiculous for one day. Brides and their entourage storm the racks grabbing whatever they can carry. It is a spectacle. However, the pure relief of a bride who just saved $4000 on a dress comes right through the TV.

With that in mind, lets switch gears. The real estate world is going through a similar type of situation. Rates are ridiculously low, there is an $8000 credit for 1st time homebuyers (or those who haven't owned a home in the last 3 years), and the inventory of homes is deeply discounted. But like all sales, this too will come to an end.

If you ever considered purchasing real estate, now might be the right time. We have held 2 home buyer seminars at our office. We had about 35 attendees the first event and 25 folks last night. Come out to RE/MAX Realty Centre on June 3 from 7-9 if you would like to find out if now is the right time.
