8 out of 10 believe buying a home is a good financial decision.

Nearly eight out of 10 respondents believe buying a home is a good financial decision, despite ongoing challenges with the economy and housing market. That’s according to the 2010 National Housing Pulse Survey, an annual report released by the National Association of REALTORs.

I wonder how they will “feel” after the next downturn in housing prices?

It can be a good financial decision. If you know how to do it.

People are still making money flipping.
You need to do your homework now in days.
Simply providing a bankroll is not enough and is how it should be.
They need us more.

Debasing the dollar is going to help increase real estate prices.

If building materials rise in price, new homes being built will also, which will result in all housing prices to climb. If we get builders to build. that may help with the economy all around; as long as there are people with jobs. Keeping any job is priority one.

Gary is correct. The issue in real estate is still jobs.

I don’t disagree but there is so much excess inventory to work through, so much tighter lending standards and such high unemployment that it will be a long time before things return to “normal” what ever that really is as all thee factors tend to lower prices and new housing can’t compete.
