With interest rates still at an all-time low and prices still affordable is now the right time to buy?  This is a question many of my clients are now starting to ask themselves.  Two of my clients in the past month have decided to purchase instead of rent as with rent prices climbing and interest rates so low they actually found it cheaper to purchase than to rent.  With rates still around 3.75 one can purchase a home with minimal down and payments still lower than rent.  There is also a unique opportunity to be able to purchase an investment property and have your home bring you a positive cash flow.  If you are interested in investing or just purchasing a home to call your own, please feel free to give me a call and I would be happy to discuss
