Those people are still waiting and kicking themselves in the butt. Whenever a person purchases real estate, it’s always at the top of the market. That’s the beauty of our economy and Supply and Demand. Whether

Hey My Friends , Is cash still king? Probably so, but cash buyers are backing off giving everyone else a golden opportunity! Only 18% of homes in July sold to cash buyers. 82% of buyers obtained some sort of financing. 49% received a conventional loan, 18% FHA, 12% VA and 3% some other type of financing. Homes on average sold for 98% of the list price. So if a home was listed for $100K it probably sold fo
