“I know, I know. You’ve had the conversation- ad nauseum– at this point. Low rates, tax credits, depressed prices, blah blah blah blah… after a while, it just begins to sound like the sad trombone-like voice of Charlie Brown’s teacher.Unlike the teacher, current market conditions warrant a much closer look for first time buyers (as well as those who haven’t owned their principal residence for three years). And while many of the articles that you’ll find on the subject are long, dry and boring… I’ve found one that does a nice job of not only spelling out the opportunity, but also bringing some real-life perspective to the situation.
Real life perspective. That sounded like it came from the campaign trail. Anyway…
Check out this great article from today’s Wisconsin State Journal. It’s a quick read, but totally worth it if you or someone you know is considering buying a home for the first time (or for the first time in three years).
Confession: I lifted the title to this blog post directly from the article that I’m about to send you to. Control-C, control-V, all the way.
