You Snooze, You Lose

The motto for today’s real estate market should be “You Snooze You Lose“!

Interest rates have slowly begun to creep a little higher.  The number of homes for sale continues to be very, very low making it difficult for buyers to negotiate rock-bottom prices.  Instead of waiting for the cost of buying a home to go higher, maybe it’s time to hear the alarm and get serious about buying.
