Has There Ever Been a Better Time to Buy a Home? (Delaware Valley Real Estate - Northern Delaware)

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.

In Michigan - Such a great time to buy.  Interest rates at an all time low and houses priced competitively for all buyers and investors.  Banks still offering 0 down programs for those who qualifiy and need assistance.
