5 Reasons To Buy A Home

Every now and then I make sure to reflect on what I am advising to the people I come in contact with every day because I want to make sure my advice is up to date.  The other day I said to myself, do I think now is still a good time to buy a home?  The reason I asked myself this is because this economy scares me with unemployment still high, shadow inventory with foreclosures, lending is tight with small businesses, and the list goes on. 

We all know rates are unbelievably low and I truly cannot believe how low they are.  Home affordability is at an all time high but South Florida was one of the hardest hit areas in the country for real estate.  And then this article was emailed to me from a newsletter I subscribe to from http://www.keepingcurrentmatters.com/.  The article is called 5 Reasons To Buy A Home and here is the link http://kcmblog.com/2010/07/27/5-reasons-why-you-should-buy-a-home-today/

The 5 reasons it gives is because #1 Real estate is a long term investment, #2 A home is a better place to raise a family, #3 A home creates a sense of community, #4 It’s cheaper to own than to rent in many parts of the country, and #5 The people who do buy a home don’t regret it.  I highly recommend clicking on the link and reading the whole article.
