Everyday I see myself answering this question with people I meet. Almost everyone I meet on a daily basis has the need to buy or sell in this market. It's simple, I said this before and I say it again. You make money when you buy, Not when you sell. When you go shopping, you hunt for a bargain, usually items on sale. Well, the housing market is on sale at this time. Interest rates are at all time low, inventory is so high that prices are in some areas half of what they used to be a few years ago. Most people that were unable to buy before 2006, now have the opportunity to get a house for less money. And those who had the money to buy before the bubble burst, should get more house for the money they planned on investing. In fact most sales now days are from investors or first time buyers. Sellers are willing to pay for closing costs and banks are approving short-sales faster. I recently sold a house valued at 1.3 Million for $595,000. Hire a professional to work for you and get the most for your money. We can negotiate the price dramatically. For more information on this topic, visit my website www.forsaleagent.com.
