However, I urge patience and prudence in today's real estate and home buying market.3 Real Estate Investing Rules to live (before you) buy!

There are several challenges we still face:

  • Large inventory/supply - almost 11 months average across the country
  • rising interest rates - FED indicated rate cuts are over
  • High energy and food costs - oil , gas, and groceries are high historically
  • tighter access to credit - the inability/difficulty to refinance debt

if you are a longer-term investors, home buyer or 1st-time new home buyers , follow the long-standing advice of investing 101 for real estate buying here in Phoenix.

  1. Capital preservation - make sure you can afford the home; make sure you have 20% for a down payment on your mortgage
  2. Debt reduction - pay off credit cards and other debt before you add more
  3. Financial intelligence - research, talk to real estate agents, and make sure you exercise prudence. There is no last opportunity to buy a home. Make sure it is not putting you at more financial risk than you can afford.

Everyone who reads my blog knows I am a bit advocate of home buying for a residence and real estate investing.

Real Estate provides tax benefits, a hedge against inflation, long-term appreciation and a place to live and raise a family.

However, the waters of today's real estate market are turbulent. I encourage wading into the water not diving right in.

Before you invest or buy real estate I urge you to get the advice of one of the many experts in your area available on Activer Rain.
