Affordable HouseI have been wondering if this was the case, since it has been taking them so long to decide to make a move and a lot of them have not signed on the dotted line.  I am also wondering if the first time homebuyers are still waiting for a better deal. One of the reasons why I am thinking in this direction is that I have a listing in Sanford, which is a brand new, three bedrooms, two bathrooms, one car garage home with all tiled floors and a lot of upgrades.  This home is price extremely aggressively to sell, but only few have looked at it and no one has made an offer to purchase this home.  The strange thing about this is that the buyer of this home only has to put down approximately $2,000 more than what is traditionally put down when you rent a home and then the monthly payment would be less that what the rent is for the same model homes in the area.  But on the plus side, there is the $8,000 Tax Credit that the first time homebuyer is getting next year, which will leave the buyer with $3,000 after deducting the closing cost from the Tax Credit.  In this case we are talking about an FHA loan and that the seller will pay all closing cost except the down payment.
