Our House is a Very Fine House

Our House is a Very Fine House

You must be thinking we're crazy. Buy a house in this economy? It seems counterintuitive, sure...but realty pros are saying there's never been a better time than right now to buy.

They cite low prices and shrinking inventory as two main reasons for a favorable buying climate. But the National Association of Realtors says more can be done, and it's the government who needs to make it happen. To encourage more buyers into the housing market, NAR has proposed that the government buy-down mortgage interest rates to ensure fixed low rates for home buyers. NAR also presented a four-point plan to Congress last month recommending, in part, that the repayment feature be removed from the first-time home buyer tax credit, that the tax credit be extended to all buyers, and that higher FHA and conventional loan limits be made permanent—up to $729,000 in high-cost areas—to give buyers in these areas access to safer, more affordable mortgages.

Do you agree with the assesment that you should buy now, or are you still waiting? [WSJ]

How My Marriage Was Restored Email: eboehispellcaster@yahoo.com

My Name is Cindy Diane currently living in Ohio, USA.. This is my testimony about the marvelous work Dr Eboehi did for me. My husband abandon me and the kids and went to stay with another woman who he just met. And the woman did spell on him so that he will never have nothing to do with me and my kids for that, my self and the kids has been suffering and it has been hell of a struggle, but I decide to do all means to make sure that my family come together as it use to, then I went on-line there I saw so many good talk about this spell caster called Dr Eboehi on his web site. So I had to contact him and explain my problem to him and in just 48hours as he has promised, my husband came home and his behavior was back to the man i got married to. I cant thank the spell caster enough for what he did for me, i am so grateful and i will never stop to publish his name on the internet for the good work he has done for me, once again thanks Dr Eboehi email: ( eboehispellcaster@yahoo.com ) .. You can contact him for any kind of problem i know he is there to help you. Website: Link

I wish we could buy a house now! I agree that now is a good time to buy a house. Really I think anytime within the next two to three years will be ideal. We're focused on saving for our wedding though right now. After that, we will start saving for a house.
