Ron Lieber, the YOUR MONEY writer for the New York Times, did a NICE PIECE Dec. 5 regarding the opportunities available for first-time buyers. In fact, Mr. Lieber went so far as to say we will one day regard this as a GOLDEN AGE for these young and first-time purchasers.
It's nice to hear this from an objective source. Let's be honest, a lot of us visiting Active Rain today are in the business of selling homes, so when we start talking about "historic" opportunities or "Golden Ages" of real estate, a lot of skeptics are just going to roll their eyes.
"Golden Age? Sure," they might say, "You're a Realtor looking for the next sale."
I will let you read the ARTICLE yourselves, but the gist is that buyers who aren't also sellers are in a great position. He calls current real estate conditions the BUYING OPPORTUNITY OF A LIFETIME. Good stuff.
And, thank you Ron Lieber, for your non-licensed status! It would not have packed nearly the punch coming from a Realtor. You Da Man!!
I hope everybody in the Active Rain community has a great night.
AND, FOR THOSE WITH KIDS........CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS IS ON TONIGHT!!!
