Over the last few weeks I have had the pleasure of meeting with quite a few people who will be soon buying their first homes in Metro Detroit. They are excited about the opportunities they are seeing in places like Royal Oak, Birmingham, Beverly Hills, Huntington Woods and Troy. They should be excited. Today’s housing market has created unprecedented opportunities for them. I wish I was a first time buyer.
Yesterday I was out with some first time buyers who wanted to see 4 houses in Troy. We ended up seeing two because the other two were already under contract. As always, the competition for the most desirable homes will be stiff. I suspect that this spring, the first time buyer market will be especially competitive as people look to take advantage of the tax credit and market conditions.
Be prepared. An opportunity like today’s hasn’t been seen in decades.
