Spring is right around the corner, so today we are going to take a moment to talk about Match Day, an important time of year for real estate here in Augusta. Match Day is an annual rite of passage for medical students, a day when they learn which U.S. residency programs they will train at for the next three to seven years.
Many of them end up right here in Augusta, which is why it’s such an important time of year for real estate agents. It’s a fun little sub-market because we sell a lot of homes in the historic parts of town, and every year it’s fun for us to help out those people who are doing their residencies in Augusta. There is a great opportunity here to buy a home because our housing is so affordable right now. It’s the perfect time to get a real estate education, as well as finish your medical education.
Not everybody should buy, of course, but in Augusta, with such a rich medical history, it’s a great place to start the journey of homeownership. We really enjoy helping people make good real estate decisions right now, so they can move on properly in the future.
A lot of times, we help students sell their homes after their residency so they can move up and get a nicer home, regardless of where they are going to
be moving. Having that equity after you finish your residency is huge, and can make your next home purchase much more affordable.
We can help you on either side of the transaction, whether you are just starting your residency, or finishing it up. If you have any questions about our market, or about how you can buy affordably in Augusta, give us a call or send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you!
