David Pylyp There IS a silver lining. With all this indecision and doubt, the resale values are holding within a single digit change from last year and still ahead of 2006 for values. Not quite the end of the world that is MEDIA frenzied. So.... would you rather risk, for example $ 8,000 on having an incredible selection of homes? Find an assumable mortgage and save the same $8,000 back? Maybe you have a closing and are short a few thousand. Contact Me.
