The Current Housing Market: Perfect for Ditching a Renters Nightmare
It's the perfect climate for ditching a renters nightmare. The current housing market is ripe for picking a perfect house (or a house to turn into the perfect home) and wrapping it up in a bow. With low interest rates and low home prices, buyers can find great deals and get low house payments. Another great opportunity in today's market is the fixer-upper.
A lot of houses for sale today have been vacant for awhile. Whether they're foreclosed, bank-owned or simply left behind these homes are often in need of repair. Sometimes they're missing a furnace or wiring. Other times the homeowners who left either took major items with them or trashed the house before leaving. Or the house has simply lacked regular maintenance. Whatever the case, these fixer-uppers need some TLC. As a buyer, you can find good deals for your budget with these kinds of properties.
Whether it's low interest rates or good deals, it's definitely a buyer's market. This means it's great for renters looking to leave the apartment behind and get a home of their own. The current housing market is great for buyers of all varieties. First time home buyers, step-up buyers, homeowners looking for a smaller house...these are all great. But it's especially a great market for ending a renters nightmare.
Here's an example: Ever have one of those neighbors that just takes it "too far"?

If this has happened to you, it may be time to think about getting a home of your own! This funny video shows just how awkward a neighbor can make your lunch.
