It is STILL great to own a home!! - 12/10/07 01:47 PM
12/10/07 Well folks, I saw a news column this morning that talks about renting versus owning.....I believe it is STILL a great time to own your home! A huge percentage of the Fortune 500 own real estate. It is still great to own, and over time to completely pay off.....Imagine if you were 55 years old and had paid off your home? That would be liking getting a HUGE raise every month!! Many retirees actually use their home equity as a retirement nest egg.

I am just finishing with a real estate Principles Class for the Berkeley County Board of Education...my team teacher, Ruthi Smith, and myself have taught the class for almost 10 years. Ruthi will teach a spring class for real estate Principles if there are enough students.
