IS NOW THE TIME TO INVEST IN REAL ESTATE

I am a Century 21 Real Estate Agent and I am often asked "How's the housing market?" and even IS NOW THE TIME TO INVEST IN REAL ESTATE?

One of my answer's to these questions is that people need a place to live and that there are always people buying or selling houses, the numbers just change.

With the recent housing market upheavals some say more people are renting.  If this is true someone has to own the houses that are being rented.  The question is "Should that person be you?"  IS NOW THE TIME TO INVEST IN REAL ESTATE?

This article, by Steve Cook, was published by RREIN Daily e-News "Consumers Expect Big Rate Hikes in 2012" suggests Rental prices are on the rise, December 12, 2011.  Increase in rent prices are mostly related to increase demand and decreased supply.  You become the 'supplier'.

Great information. You make a good point that we must look at the whole picture and look forward  as opposed to watching the rearview mirror. It is only a matter of time before the mRket rebounds.

I think it is always the time to invest, it's just a matter of finding the right deals. Interest rates can only go up, which combined with the other economic woes, may drop prices. But if your focus is on cashflow I think payments are lower now than they will be in the future.

People need to also consider that if they are doing a long term hold, they are also getting tax write offs, paying down the mortgage and over time the prices will be going up. The Federal Reserve has been running the printing press at full speed and it is inevitable that we will get rising prices.
