The Best Time To Buy A Home Might Be Now

(orginal article in the AJC.com) From a financial perspective, the window for pouncing on a once-in-a-lifetime deal on a home might be narrowing. The state’s median selling price is down from $175,000 at the market’s 2007 peak to $109,900 in May, says the Georgia Association of Realtors. But recent prices are trending up.

If you do use your gym membership—that is awesome, you are definitely getting your money’s worth! ...
