To be sure, there is not much good economic news these days. However, this is truly a unique time period for first-time homeowners. Home-ownership is more affordable because of the drop in home prices, the availability of short sales and REO properties and the fact that mortgage rates are still low.
One of the reasons cited for some of the current housing and mortgage problems facing the community is the lack of pre-buying education. This issue is being taken seriously by various organizations and more emphasis is being placed on counseling consumers prior to purchasing.
If you are considering purchasing your home this year, maybe to take advantage of the $8000 tax credit, there is still time to get information about the mortgage process, the home buying process, the role of the attorney in the process, the inspection and and title work.
With this in mind you are invited to a free home buyers seminar.
