WORDS OF WISDOM: People ask me when is the best time to buy a home. My answer is this. If you find the home you like, and you can afford it without eating beans and rice for every meal, then buy it. You have to live somewhere. It feels good to own a home and know that your improvements make a difference. In a market where the price is increasing… the best time to buy a home was yesterday. The next best time is today. The next best time is tomorrow.  

Don’t hesitate. Work with a real estate agent you trust. Get committed and have fun.
