5 new rules for today's homebuyers

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Shoreline New Hampshire & Maine

A recent article in Money magazine lists 5 new rules for today’s homebuyers. After reading the article I found that I agree with all 5 of them.

New rule 1: DO NOT try to time the bottom of this market. We may be there or close already or not. In any instance it’s very unlikely you’ll hit it at the exact bottom. Case in point; several years ago my wife and I decided to refinance our former home in west Knoxville because mortgage rates were falling. I had 5 different mortgage bankers and myself watching the market trying to figure out where the bottom was.

Jim, I love how you have just enough to tease someone and then they have to click and it re-directs to your site. Genious and a great idea. Good Job!

Good post, Jim.  By the time the mainstream figures out the bottom has come, the housing market will already be well along on its way back up.
