Are Distressed Homes Worth It? That would depend on more than one "it" factor.  Before you fall in love with that low, low price, a savvy buyer of a "distressed home" should follow the same guidelines as a conventional buyer.  Location, location, location is still a tried and true mantra when inv...

I was hoping that the title would be enough to get people to check out my blog, but here is my honest question...How many current home buyers are only motivated by the tax credit?  There is no doubt that the tax credit is an excellent incentive (and has helped several of my clients take the plung...
