Buying or selling a home will likely be one of the largest financial transactions you will make in your lifetime, so you want to make sure that it is well overseen and taken care of. The best way to do this is to enlist the services of a licensed REALTOR.

As a buyer, your main goal is to find a home that suits your needs at the best possible price.  Perhaps the biggest benefit of using a REALTOR is time saved.  A good REALTOR will spend time finding out what your needs are.  They will know the area, and save you time by showing you homes that meet your specific needs.   They may also point out inspections that you may want to consider before you purchase, which could potentially save you money.  Additionally, a REALTOR will likely be able to negotiate a better price for you. While you may be new to the area, they will be well aware of what a house is worth and how much comparable properties are selling for in the neighborhood.

As a seller, your main goal is to get your home sold quickly and at the right price. A REALTOR will have the tools and expertise necessary to accomplish this goal.  To begin, they will be able to make sure that your property is priced and positioned right. Most REALTORs have strong marketing avenues in place that can be used to promote your property. In addition, REALTORs are in constant contact with prospective buyers, so they are likely to find a match much faster than you would on your own.  Most importantly, they will save you the hassle of having to deal with showings, negotiations, and prospective buyers. 

So, when you are ready to start the process of buying or selling, let a REALTOR put their knowledge to work for you. You'll be glad you did!

In an unprecedented offer that should give a boost to the beleaguered state, homebuyers in West Virginia will get the chance to apply for zero-down, 3.5 percent 30-year fixed-rate mortgage loans. Funds for the Housing Development program come from a $35M bond, and are limited to the first 280 eligible applicants. See the following article from HousingWire for more on this.

The governor of West Virginia  announced an unparalleled housing strategy, and is now offering the best mortgage rates the state has ever seen — a 30-year fixed-rate of only 3.5%.

Not only that, but the program includes a 0% down payment policy and families are still eligible for closing cost assistance loans.

This program, run by the West Virginia Housing Development Fund, is able to achieve the rate through a $35m bond issue.

The mortgage does come with a few stipulations. The mortgage deal is available on a first-come, first-serve basis to only 280 qualified West Virginian families. The WV Housing Development Fund will move anyone into a targeted county, but any applicant wanting to move to a non-targeted county must be a first-time homebuyer.

"I am so pleased with the diligent work that the West Virginia Housing Development Fund has done to bring this tremendous housing opportunity into fruition for so many West Virginians," said governor Joe Manchin in a press release. "I am confident that this new mortgage program will be a win-win for both our citizens and the state's housing industry."

The West Virginia Housing Development Fund said they will start taking applications for loans immediately.

Even in these trying economic times, the West Virginia Housing Development Fund is committed to providing affordable housing to the citizens of West Virginia.

If you are looking to purchase a new home, or need to refinance your current mortgage, the West Virginia Housing Development Fund has a program to help:

A message from Joe Hatfield, Executive Director of the West Virginia Housing Development Fund:

"The West Virginia Housing Development Fund is offering a new mortgage program for state residents that includes a 30-year fixed rate loan at 3.5 percent. This is a historic program and the Fund has issued $35 million in bonds to provide West Virginians with an opportunity to have safe and affordable housing. Since 1968, we have been working hard to ensure that residents of our state have a home to call their own. We know that an essential part of the American Dream is homeownership, and with this new program, it will provide more West Virginians the opportunity to own a home."

• Extends the First-Time Home Buyer Tax Credit of up to $8,000 to first-time home buyers until April 30, 2010.

• Expands the credit to grant up to $6,500 credit to current home owners purchasing a new or existing home between November 7, 2009 and April 30, 2010.

Here is more information about how the Extended Home Buyer Tax Credit can help prospective home buyers become part of the American dream.

Who Qualifies for the Extended Credit?

• First-time home buyers who purchase homes between November 7, 2009 and April 30, 2010.

• Current home owners purchasing a home between November 7, 2009 and April 30, 2010, who have used the home being sold or vacated as a principal residence for five consecutive years within the last eight.

To qualify as a “first-time home buyer” the purchaser or his/her spouse may not have owned a residence during the three years prior to the purchase.
