Should there be any concerns? I have been very conservative and have paid for my house and most of my land. Still driving my Dad's old 93 GMC for a beater! :grin:

I am looking at a house on the water (bay and canal) on the east coast of Florida. Beautiful place.... I mean picture perfect... And a pretty good price with out any in-depth investigation. I have to admit I am apprehensive on pulling the trigger. I have crunched the numbers and can afford it, but what if Obama gets back in and we spiral further into economic turmoil? :confused: :confused: :confused:

Maybe I should be looking at a place in New Zealand? :duh:

PS was thinking of doing some vacation renting if zoned for so. :yes:

Really depends on your current job and whether or not you think it'll be there.

If I had the capital available I'd be buying rentals at this insane 3.0% 15 year and 3.75% 20 year rates.

Unfortunately I was dumb and spent more on my piece of paper than I did my home so I'm still working on that.

DON'T DO IT-HOARD YOUR CASH. Take the lead from big business and play the wait and see game.

Sorry guys, this is just a scenario I am sure MANY are looking at. Just wondered if anyone thought the same. ;)

I am all about being an EVIL CAPITOLIST and buying low and selling high.... Isn't that what they/we do? :)sphss

Your best choice is to purchase a rental and let someone else pay your mortgage. Hold until your ready to sell. It's like money in the bank and you should expect about a 7% pretax return. Think like your dads old truck. Enjoy your house and splurge on a vacation once and a while. Many 1% ers make their fortune in real estate.

Why not wait 6 months and see which way the wind is blowing?
That is what I was thinking. I wonder how many others are thinking the same?

I would wait. I was going the other way, (Bad investment: was thinking of buying a new Sanger ski boat.) But will wait to see what happens in the next year. The money is real cheap right now, and its hard not to pull the trigger. But if they print another stimulus bill, watch out. were all big in-trouble then.

There is a lot of shadow inventory out there with very little currently in the market
, I think I would wait until it starts getting released again. Some are saying that will be shortly after the election.
