When was the last time you bought or sold a house?
In today’s economy, it’s the perfect time to buy a house with super-low interest rates (currently hovering around the 3.2%-3.8% range… dirt cheap money). And with the low amount of resale housing inventory, it’s also the perfect time to sell your house… assuming it’s in relatively good condition.
In other words, it’s both a buyer’s and a seller’s market – at least at certain price points and in certain neighborhoods.
So now that you’ve decided to buy (or sell) your home, what are things that you can do to insure that you’re getting a good deal and not some money pit?
