I am sure most of you have seen the National Association of Realtors ad campaign on tv and if you haven't, here is a great place for you to find answers about the benefits of owning a home, your investment, financing options, how to prepare to buy or sell, and get valuable insight into many different areas in the world of real estate. Remember, as the ad says, every market is different - every market is local - you can listen to the media all you want to but the best thing to do is to get the facts on the market in your area yourself and through your licensed Realtor. I am proud to be a Realtor and am pleased that NAR has taken on passing along much needed information for you to use in making the best decisions regarding a such an important purchase. We as an industry are proud to have NAR on our side and yours as homebuyers and sellers, backing us up all the way by confirming what we talk to clients about on a daily basis.
