Has There Ever Been a Better Time to Buy a Home?
(Delaware Valley Real Estate - Northern Delaware)
While Northern Delaware (Wilmington DE-MD-NJ Metro Area) house prices have declined since the peak of the market (down 13.74% since 2006*), prices have appreciated over the past ten years (up 58% since 2000*) and housing (in my opinion) has become the most attractive asset class in America, especially for investors, as well as, home buyers looking to stay put for a while.
You may be asking yourself: "Has There Ever Been a Better Time to Buy a Home?" Well, there is a time for everything, including buying a home. But how do you know if the time is right for you? In the Fall/Winter 2011 issue of The Chairman's Report (Northern Delaware Edition), Larry Flick, Chairman and CEO of Prudential Fox & Roach REALTORS, looks at several ways of answering this question using regional market trends.
