THE RETURN OF REAL ESTATE: Has the tide turned? Time to BUY?

In our economic news, we are informed that the Fed's QE may soon be coming to an end.  If rates rise, it certainly defeats the purpose of trying to wait for "a better deal".  Any gain in lower price may be offset by higher interest. Remember,  A good deal is a GOOD DEAL. If you really love a house and can afford it, ACT NOW!  Check this article out in FORTUNE Magazine (http://finance.fortune.cnn.com/2011/03/28/real-estate-its-time-to-buy-again/

It makes you think about the ROI on Wall Street vs. ROI on real estate investments.  Most people of high net wealth in this country have real estate holdings in their portfolio because it serves several purposes: depreciation tax benefits, equity appreciation, stable ROI long term. 

All the best,
