Crye-Leike, REALTORS In Atoka, Tennessee Invite Anxious Buyers

ATOKA, TN., – Crye-Leike, REALTORS in Atoka invite the public to attend a FREE educational homebuyer’s seminar and find out why now is the best time to purchase a home.


“We would like to extend an invitation to anyone who is even considering buying a home right now,” said Crye-Leike Atoka Managing Broker Nancy Carroll. “With the $8,000 tax credit for first-time buyers, with interest rates still at a historical low and with a good selection of homes on the market to choose from, now is a great time for anyone to purchase a home and stop throwing money away on rent.”


Potential buyers are encouraged to come ask questions and learn about the entire home buying process from searching for a home and making an offer to signing papers at the closing table.


“The agents in our office decided to offer a free homebuyer seminar to explain the steps involved in buying a home,” said Carroll. “We want to educate the public on how they can take advantage of this rare opportunity to receive $8,000 for simply purchasing a home and making their American dream of homeownership a reality.”


The seminar will educate buyers on several important home buying topics including: how and where to start looking for a home, how to receive the $8,000 tax credit, information on buying a foreclosure, how to get pre-approved for a home loan, the type of mortgages available, and how to improve your credit score. Magna Bank Loan Specialist Mackie Olstead will be at the seminar answering buyers’ financial questions and helping them get pre-approved for a home loan.


The clock is ticking down on the government’s $8,000 tax credit for first-time homebuyers as the credit expires November 30. First-time homebuyers and anyone who hasn’t owned a home in three years have less than 90 days to search for and close on a home before the opportunity to receive the $8,000 credit ends.


“We don’t want anyone who qualifies for the tax credit to miss out on their chance to get the money,” said Carroll. “It may seem like there is plenty of time left, but buyers who are serious about getting the tax credit should find a home they like and get the home loan process started as soon as possible. Due to the time it’s taking for loans to be approved, buyers who wait may not beat the November 30th deadline.”


The seminar will be held at Crye-Leike, REALTORS Atoka Branch Office located at 13690 Highway 51 South on Thursday, September 10th starting at 6:30pm and on Saturday, September 12 starting at 10:00am.


Sellers can also find out about what things they can do to help sell their homes quicker in this current buyers market. Prospective sellers can hear what’s happening in their local housing market instead of all the gloom and doom they hear in national media reports.


Agents in Crye-Leike’s Atoka office assist buyers and sellers in and around Tipton and Shelby counties. They specialize in all types of residential real estate sales and are members of The National Association of Realtors (NAR).
