It is quite an unsual time in real estate now, and it is hard to predict what the future will hold. The thing we do know is that, unlike the previous boom years, we are certainly in a Buyer's market. As long as you are qualified, you have the chance to find INCREDIBLE deals in Los Angeles that might not have been there the past few years. Your home is not only an investment- it is your HOME. With a little investigation, you might find that now is the time to get a great deal. Each situation is different, depending on the buyer, the loans available to them, the property and the location- but at least look into the possibility so that a great opportunity doesn't pass you by.
