Wake up to some good news in 2010! It's a "piece of cake" to trade up in this market. Prices are low - interest rates are low and conforming loan limits are the highest they have ever been! There is a great window of opportunity that is wide open right now. Don't stay behind the curve and miss your chance to lock in a great deal on a home at historically low interest rates fixed for 30 years. Also, don't forget the $8000 first time buyer credit and $6500 move-up tax credit for current homeowners. They both require purchases by April 30th and closed escrows by June 30th 2010.

If you're struggling with your mortgage and want to sell your home - this is the right time to attract buyers too! Check out the conforming loan list by county below. Feel free to call with any questions and if you're thinking about moving out of your current area and need a great broker referral, let me know and I'll research the appropriate professional for you in your chosen city or county.
