Now Is The Time To Purchase Real Estate!
Looking for a great investment opportunity?? Itís right under your nose! RIGHT NOW is the time to invest and if you wait too long, this perfect window of opportunity will shut! Itís all about supply & demand. The demand is extremely LOW and the supply is through the ROOF! To make the equation simple, prices are at an all time ROCK BOTTOM. Buy now.
The real estate market will rebound again. It will again become a sellers market in which there are more people looking to buy homes than people willing to sell them. This will probably not happen for at least another four years. During that time, things will even out a bit and housing prices will level off. When the sellers market hits, the prices will begin to rise again. That is when you want to sell.
In addition to being a great buyers market with tons of foreclosures on the market, another aspect of real estate market today is the fact that the mortgage rates are lower than they have been in 40 years or so. This provides you the opportunity not only to take advantage of the low asking prices on homes, but also rock bottom interest rates.
You should look to your real estate investment as a long term investment at this point. It will take several years for the market to rebound from this slump. When it does, you can then sell and make some money on your investment. In the meantime, you can use the investment for practical purposes. Either you can live in the home yourself, have family members live in the home or rent it out to tenants. The mortgage will be covered and eventually you will be able to sell the property that you purchased for a lot less than market value, for a profit.
Real estate is one of the best investments that you can make. It is a tangible asset that not only can be used, is something that must be used. One of our most basic necessities is shelter. Real estate is the only investment that you can make that attends to one our basic needs. You certainly cannot invest in food as it does not last for the long haul. And clothing? Too trendy and never worth more used than when new. But real estate is a winner. Shelter is the one thing we all need and you can actually make money by investing in real estate, even in a depressed market.
Take a look around and buy real estate in an area that is either about to hit a growth spurt or is stable and established. If you are looking for a home for yourself, take a look at the many different foreclosures that are on the market. You can get quite a deal as there are thousands of these properties all over the United States, even in upscale neighborhoods. When you find a property that you like, bid low. Take about 20 percent off of the asking price. The seller can always counter offer with a higher figure.
Look around for the best mortgage interest rates and packages. There has never been a better time than now to invest in real estate.
