wholesale: Tax Benefits of Owning a Home - 03/07/08 08:55 AM
Daily Real Estate News  |  March 7, 2008Tax Benefits of Owning a Home
Before a home owner curses the troubled housing market, he or she should take solace in the U.S. tax code, which makes buying a home a good deal for almost everyone.
Here's why:
Mortgage interest deductions, including in some cases mortgage insurance premiums, reduce home owners' tax liability by reducing income. The deduction includes interest paid on both a first and a second home.
Interest on home equity loans is also deductible - whether the borrower uses the money to remodel the kitchen or to take a vacation to Disney World.

wholesale: Housing Market Ready to Rebound? - 02/29/08 04:41 AM
Here is an interesting article that I came across today:
Daily Real Estate News  |   February 25, 2008 Housing Market Ready to Rebound?

wholesale: "Ignore the Headlines!" - Dan Kadlec - 02/25/08 03:29 AM
I came across this article in time.com and found in very satisfying.

wholesale: "Best Cities for Bargain House-Hunters by Matt Woolsey - 02/19/08 08:00 AM

Still, our data suggest that strong job and economic growth in many non-housing sectors of the local economy is enough to offset it, and people are still moving to the Valley of the Sun at a quick rate." -Matt Woolsey

When people get scared, I get greedy." Now is the investor's time to get greedy.  You can either purchase retail or wholesale.  Our recommendation is the latter.
