Hi Jacob,

Now is the time to buy! Prices are going up and interest rates are at record lows! My clients have all been getting 3.25% on a 30 year fixed mortgage. To give you some can purchase a $150,000 home with $5250 down and total payment would be $1050 per month including everything. A $200,000 home with $7000 down payment of $1390 per month. You can also purchase with no money down. Contact me and I will explain everything to you. We will walk you through the whole process, start to finish. We look forward to handing you the keys to your new home!

Buy is better than keep helping a Landlord pay his mortgage. Now is the right time to buy before the price goes up anymore. Interest rate is low. And it is a good time to buy.

You can go to my website at and find all the properties on the market in Naples. Or I can send you some information if you send me your price range etc.

As Scott aptly stated, buying or renting depends on your personal financial situation. If you have cash, I encourage you to buy vs. rent. As I stated earlier, with values starting to increase and historically-low interest rates in place, there is no better time to buy than now. Again, you need to examine your financial position to make the best decision for you and your family.

That is the question.....

Considering it is more expensive to rent than to buy......I would go with buy if you can.

If you are in a position to move now, I highly recommend Naples, Florida. Aside from its world-class beaches, golf courses, shops and restaurants, Naples' home prices have stablized over the past two years. With expectation of rising home values and historically-low interest rates in 2013, now is your best opportunity to buy a home. Also, Florida does not impose estate or gift tax. From an investment standpoint, there is potential for appreciation.

The answer to your question depends on 3 things, one, your short and long term goals, second where you plan to locate, three what type of property you are referring too.

If the property type is residential or residential income producing, then you need to contact us to help you evaluate all of your options. That is why we are called consultants.

If the property type is commercial, then you need to contact a good commercial consultant.

Good luck with whatever you are trying to accomplish. Happy New Year!

We have historic low prices and interest rates below 3.5%.

If you dont take advantage of this now, it will not last. It will turn back into a seller's market, rates will rise and rent will become cheaper than owning monthly.
