It's an interesting time to be shopping for a new home. First-time home buyers will have the benefit of not having to sell a home in a down market in order to buy their new home. Current homeowners will have a slightly more difficult time, as they will be receiving less value from their home than they originally expected, but will also be able to get into a new home for less than expected. Find a good real estate agent, and they will go a long way toward steering you through the potential minefield of the modern housing market. Your real estate agent may also be able to put you in touch with a good mortgage broker. You'll be enjoying your new house before you know it!

Naming Your Price

In some states, homes are being sold for less than $20 K. If you haven’t looked into the distressed property market, check it out before the inventory disappears.

Distressed properties can make excellent real estate investments. Then lease them out or keep them until the market recovers. The current real estate market features an abundance of adequate properties for less than market value.

With the myriad of bargain homes on the current market, the number of home buyers has grown appreciably over the past year. Bargain homes sell at enticing prices, so prospective home owners are eager to take advantage of today’s buyer’s market.
