Commercial Break - If you have not owned a home in 3 years buy a Raleigh home now!

By
Real Estate Agent with Raleigh Cary Realty

I know this is definitely a self promoting blog post but I have to say that if you live in the Raleigh area (depends on where you live of course), you should buy a home over renting this year. 

With an $8,000 tax credit (all of it back in taxes not off of taxable income), great rates, and it being a buyer's market you should definitely consider it if you are paying the average rent in this area.

In case you did not know all of the reasons to buy in the Triangle NC area check out our rankings in 2008:
