When buying a home you’re bound to encounter some things that you don’t know anything about. They are things that outside of the home buying process you won’t ever run into.

Oswald Acted Alone and We Did Land on the Moon-reposted with permission We believe that things are usually as they seem. We are not the type of organization that believes in conspiracies. However, there is something interesting in some of the housing price studies we are seeing in our research. It seems that some of the groups making the predictions are the same ones that have the greatest power to affect the prices they are projecting. Most housing analysts warn that the heaviest downward pressure on prices will be created by distressed properties and the speed at which they will be (0 comments)

house: Are prices stabiizing in the Taunton/Rehoboth/Dighton? - 12/20/08 07:21 PM

When the market changes, nobody will know it until they look back. It happens fast. There are basic opinions on this: The first is that interest rates are going down and are now in the low 5's high 4's. This means that a $200,000 mortgage would be between $1000-1100 a month (excluding taxes and insurance. Now homes in the Taunton Massachusetts can be bought for about the same monthly payment as what one would pay to rent! (3 comments)
