This is a housing market we have not seen since 1974.  Key factors have merged to make a ripe real estate climate for you, the homebuyer.  Low interest rates, currently around the 4-5% range, provide the ability to purchase a mortgage at an exceptionally affordable level.  Housing values are still declining, though this should level off through the end of the year.  In addition, you still have time to take advantage of the homebuyer tax credit, expiring on April 30th, 2010.  William Raveis Real Estate understands these aligning factors are very helpful for first-time and repeat homebuyers.  Check out RAVEIS.com for additional information and to view all open house listings.
