Wait till the 30 yr fixed goes up to its usual 7.5 to 8.5 range. That will be the end of the 250-400k 25 year old townhouses and 50 yr old 3 bdr ranch starter homes.

Lets see. 250k townhouse with 20% down = $1,500 month P & I + at least $600 for property tax and HOA. $50 more for insurance. $2,150 a month for a 25 year townhouse with a lifespan of 30 to 35 years. What a bargain

Prices are going to just collapse if rates continue up.
RE is reliant on monthly payments. s interest rates and taxes go up prices must go down big to correlate to these increases.

That's what I was trying to say. When you have to gross 100k and be able to put down $50 to $100k to get into a starter home without using a suicide loan something is definitely wrong with the market.

I have been following a site now for almost 2 years and I have found it to be both reliable and profitable. They post daily and their stock trades have been beating
the indexes easily.

Take a look at Wallstreetwinnersonline.com
