Orange County Home Auction Gives Buyers the Edge

Ready to own your own home and step up your lifestyle?  Then make fast tracks to the Marriot Anaheim on Sunday, December 13 for the ultimate Orange County home auction.  That’s when 54 units of the luxurious Harbor Lofts hit the auction block. Bids start at an ultra-low $165,000.  That’s right. $165,000.

Gotta Luv the Lofts

The Harbor Lofts are located in bustling downtown Anaheim. A nice, prestigious location with plenty of urban snap and sizzle. What else could you ask for? OK, how about pricing that re-defines Orange County housing affordability.

You’ll Also Enjoy:

  • Your choice of 1-3 bedrooms.
  • Swimming pool and gym.
  • Easy walking distance to shopping, parks, and Farmers Market, as well as a minutes-away drive to Disneyland, the Honda Center, and Anaheim stadium.

All qualified buyers are eligible for up to $125,00 in down payment assistance. And if this is your first home purchase, you may qualify to receive up to $8,000.00 in a first-time buyer tax credit. Nice.

The Remedy for Auction Anxiety

Those of you with ‘auction anxiety’ can rest assured that the whole process is actually quite simple, and even exhilarating.  Before any bidding starts, a speaker will make sure you’re completely informed with a brief summary of the terms of sale, the ways to bid, and any late changes or disclosures. The auctioneer answers any final questions you might have. Then the fun begins as bidders call out their competing offers to gain the property of their dreams. Basically it works like any other auction. If you get a chance, attend a home auction to familiarize yourself with this truly exciting way to grab big time real estate bargains.

Orange County First Time Home Buyer?

Posted on December 4, 2009. Filed under: First Time Buyer help, Making Life Easier, Orange County Real Estate | Tags: , , |

It’s Better Than Ever To Be an Orange County First Time Home Buyer

As an Orange County first time home buyer, selecting your home is a major decision. Luckily, the U.S. Government is making it easier than ever for newbies. To stimulate the housing market, Uncle Sam has extended the first-time buyer tax credit until April, 2010. The program has already helped hundreds of first-timers see their dream come true. Why not be one of them?

Taking Advantage of the Program

If you’re a qualified first-time home buyer, you can receive up to an $8,000 tax credit for your purchase.  To qualify, you’ve gotta purchase your home between November 7, 2009 and April 30, 2010.  Also, you cannot have owned a residence any time prior to buying your new home. If you meet these criteria, you’re on your way. How much you qualify for depends upon two factors: your income and the price of the property you’re considering.  The point is, you’re in for a major financial windfall no matter where you lie on the scale.

The other great thing about the tax credit is that it offers you complete freedom. You can choose any property your heart desires, as long it is used as your primary residence. There are no other restrictions.

Since the first time buyer tax credit expires in 2010, the time is ripe to reap the rewards of this major incentive and live the dream of home ownership. There are dozens of resources to learn more about this exciting program if you’re an Orange County first time home buyer. Should you have specific questions, I’m always available to answer them.  You can contact me at 949.338.7408. Or you can follow me on Twitter @AngieWeeks or @WeeksTeam.
