Renting? Time To Seriously Consider Buying Your Own Home

While there are no guarantees in life, I don’t know of a better time to buy a first home.

With mortgage rates slightly over 5 percent, huge unsold inventory of houses and condos, and thousands of dollars from the federal government, this could be your last chance to buy a home on the cheap.

The federal incentives run out at the end of April. While mortgage rates may go down a little more, odds are that they will rise a little before they RISE A LOT.

So, my other piece of advice is only go FIXED. While a variable rate is more attractive now, you will get slaughtered two to three years from now when interest rates are likely to pick up.
