Is Now a Good Time to Rent? People often ask if now is a good time to buy a home, but nobody ever asks when a good time to rent is. Regardless, we want to make certain that everyone understands that today is NOT a good time to rent.

   Creative disruption has a very specific definition in the context of an increasingly stale business world focused on the bottom line instead of innovation and progress.
 
Josh Linker's premise about creative disruption is masterfully detailed in his book, “The Road to Reinvention: How to Drive Disruption and Accelerate Transformation.” In essence, Josh says true disruption often comes from small, start-up companies. While large organizations are busy protecting the “Golden Goose,” entrepreneurs have nothing to defend … and this works in their favor. Their every thought must be about ways to break traditional business models rather than maintaining them; they must invent … (2 comments)

Having a stellar credit report plays a critical factor in determining what interest rate lenders offer home buyers, but other issues such as the amount of your down payment can also impact it if you’ve decided on … (4 comments)

Since it is uncommon that builders pay a commission on new home sales, it’s in your best interest to be prepared to point out the positives and negatives of buying a resale property vs. a new home.
Buying a new home instead of an existing one has plenty of perks.
Of course, buyers pay for those perks; new homes cost more than comparable used ones.
