Too many sources of the information citizens read has fallen to the habit of sensationalizing EVERYTHING! Anything trending up is a bubble or down a bust. The reality they never report is the trend is NEVER flat except for a brief moment. The reality they choose to report is we are either in a bust or bubble..........Where's the middle ground? Where's the seasonal fluction? Where's the identification of cyclical transitions from buyer to seller market? Where's the idenfication of DC being the most significant contributor of creating such volitility?
Even those reports where the measurable change is so minicule that reporting the number whould be laughable, the sources will state, "Employment is increasing!" or 'Proven to increase bone strenth" while the fine print says, ".00007 mircons on C7" a benefit so small as to make this perscription drug useless for imporiving health but useful in introducing the long long long list of likely risks such as extremely brittle bones.
Statistics, however, don't lie! Statiticians do!
Real estate is local. What ever the market, there are solutions available or to be created and professional ready to apply them.
Best of success,

In regards to the condo on McPherson it is probalbly referring to the condo association or trustee. Most condo/townhouse properties have a monthly maintenance fee associated with the purchase of the condo. Make sure you find out the fee and add it to your estimated mortgage payment when making a decision on a condo purchase. www.patriot-realtors.com... more
There are a LOT of factors involved in this. What would your insurance be, your taxes, any association dues? What are you putting down as a down payment? what is your credit like? What kind of interest rate are you able to get? You need to sit down with your Realtor and a GOOD mortgage lender and find out what YOU are qualified for. Call me at 314-660-4803 and I'll give you the phone number for a good mortgage lender who will talk to you tonight to help you sort it out and get you preapproved for a loan so you can buy that home right away.... more
