The Real Cost of Renting - 01/15/10 07:03 AM
Renting a home or apartment may seem like a good idea at first, but look at some facts about renting versus owning.
Owning gives you lots of freedom! You can play your stereo as loud as you want, paint the walls any color you wish and do the laundry any time. When you own a home there is not an extra fee for pets or any restrictions on how you can decorate your home. When you make improvements to your home you get to enjoy your investment for as long as you are there.

Home Value Appreciation - 01/13/10 07:55 AM
On my last post I talked about the 7 reasons to own your own home. I would like to expand on each point in that blog. The first point I've already talked about...the extended $8000 first-time homebuyers tax credit and the $6500 move-up buyer tax credit.
I would like to focus on the second point - appreciation. Real estate has long-term, stable growth in value. While year-to-year fluctuations are normal, median existing-home sale prices have increased on average 6.5 percent each year from 1972 through 2005 according to the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®.
