Many people are holding off on buying a home because they are
concerned that prices will drop again like they did several years ago.
While minor fluctuations can be expected in any market, Market Strategist
and Real Estate Experts expect housing prices to continue to go up
nationwide an average of 3.6% over the next 5 years. 
That rate is
slightly ahead of the expected overall inflation rate of 2% per year.
That means a home valued $400,000 today will be worth $494,00 in 5 years.

If you think of home buying as an investment, that is an average annual
return of 8.5% for a purchase using 10% down.

Price: $400,000
Down Payment: $40,000
Gain after 5 Years: $94,000
Return on Down Payment: $40,000/$94,000 = 42.5%
Annual Average: 42.5% / 5 = 8.5%

If you use one of the loan programs that allow a lower down payment your
return will be even greater.

Real estate is one of the safest money growth vehicles available.  Don't
miss out.  You are paying for housing anyway.  Might as well make it work
for you.
