Did you know interest rates are at an all-time low?  With interest rates hovering below 4% for a 30 year fixed rate, buying might be cheaper than renting.

Waiting for that move-up moment?  Now may be just the time to do it.  Indications show that the low seems to have passed, don’t miss the boat!  Banks do have money to lend and with attractive interest rates and programs available with little or no money down, what are you waiting for?
