7 Reasons to Buy a Home Now!

Home affordability is at an all-time high. The median mortgage payment on the median priced home as a percentage of the median household income is lower than it’s been in a generation.Buyers Edge

For individual home buyers, there are only a  few facts that really matter:

• Can I afford this home?

• Is it a good investment?

• Does it meet my family’s needs?

Home prices are back on the rise. After declining for 30 months, home prices are trending back upward. The time get in to the market is NOW!

Financing is readily available! Banks are back in the game and ready to lend to well-qualified buyers.
