A recent post by real estate website Trulia, deals with the , “7 Serious Worries of Today’s Home Buyers.” This is another statistical survey poll that discourages many who should understand that what others fear is a time to make bold decisions. 2013 is a crossroads year in the residential housing market. values continue to build from 2012 and overall values have recovered in most areas upwards of 15%. I said “recovered” from the statistical bottom of the market in 2009. The reasons to stay on the sidelines rather than to say “yes” and move tenaciously through the process of home buying are to miss opportunities of low interest rates and values again appreciating and on the rise. If you worry about today’s historically low Mortgage interest rates rising before you buy; or not qualifying for a mortgage at all; or appreciating home prices; or the “over heated” competitive marketplace, do your research, find a qualified, knowledgeable agent who has worked with the breath of qualified, marginal, savvy and first-time home buyers, and go forward and get into the market. The doors are open and opportunity knocks collaboration tools for business. The cycles of real estate move slowly and today we are in an upwardly trending market now in its third year, and values will soon surpass those highs in 2006 in most areas. Think home prices will fall after you buy? Think again. Get on board and enjoy the lifestyle and the security of home ownership..
