Do you remember when interest rates were at 17+% ?!?!?!   

   In the '80s home owners were paying interest rates at 17% and were VERY relieved when the droped to 14% !!! .  Interest rates today are @ 6% and below!!! It is a GREAT market especially for a first time home buyers, renters, ANYONE looking for a new home!!!  Inventory is HIGH and prices are falling!

David, It's a great time to buy real estate but the media has created such a doom and gloom scenario that the buyers and even some sellers are waiting.  What are they waiting for?  Rates to rise?  Prices to take a leap?  Everyone seems to be sitting on the fence. 

Now the Fed is threatening to start raising the interest rates.  The market is showing signs of improvement.  Only time will tell.
