Are You Participating in this Recession? Buy in your economy, for you!

Many areas around the country are hit hard by this economy. Others have been spared.

In some areas of Atlanta, the economy is both good and bad.  I find that in areas that are supported by one industry, for example, Peachtree City area- supported largely by the airline industry, things are very slow.  More diversified areas such as Alpharetta remain strong with the occassional good deal to be had.

When purchasing a home, remember to look for  a home in an economy that best serves you.

If you know you will be staying in a home for 10 years, purchase in a slow area and get a great deal!

If you know that you move every 3-5 years, consider finding a good deal in an area that is more business diversified.  You will not get a home for as good of a price, but decline is less likely to hit the more stable area as well.
