Many of you that I have spoken to over the last couple of weeks have come to realize that RIGHT NOW is a fantastic time to purchase a home! I have also personally taken advantage of these historically low interest rates & prices. There have been many REDUCTIONS and it’s no secret that the market has been incredibly slow. This slow time will not last forever and when it picks up again the prices will edge upwards as well. It’s all about supply and demand. If you would like to speak with me about the advantages of purchasing a home right now give me a call or shoot me an email. Sincerely, Dan
