The New York Times Says Now's The Time to Buy

"Five or 10 years from now, when the financial crisis has ended and housing prices are up smartly once more, we will look in the rearview mirror and realize that we missed a golden age for first-time home buyers."

That's the word from The New York Times today.  In a piece by Ron Lieber titled, "It May Be Time to Think About Buying a House," the writer cautions that buyers may "kick themselves" for not getting in on the market now when prices seem to be at or near the bottom. (Read the full story here.)

Here in St. Louis' Illinois suburbs of Madison and St. Clair Counties, my partner Kristina and I have been working with first-time buyers who have been smart enough to jump in while prices are low and inventory is still high, providing them with more choice and more leverage in negotiations. We have five closings taking place within a six week period that began in mid-November and continues through the end of December.

If you're a first-time or move-up buyer sitting on the fence, read the Times' story and give us a call. We can help you through our five easy steps to home ownership, from loan pre-qualification all the way through to closing.

You can reach us through our web site at www.JustDuckyHomes.com or call Nancy at 618-791-8007 or Kristina at 618-917-0775.
