This is the type real estate market that two years from now everyone is going to say "I wish I had bought then". Everything is looking like the time to buy is right now. Interest rates are rarely below 6%. Mortgage money is readily available. New home inventories are being absorbed. First time home buyer tax credit is available. Foreclosure properties are being bought at a much higher volume as investors and home buyers are deciding that we are at or near a bottom. Good homes at good prices are selling! And Spring is near, which is typically a point when the market flourishes.
