HomePercentage
In real estate there is a difference between COST and PRICE.

As a seller, you will be most concerned about ‘short term price’ – where home values are headed over the next six months.

As a buyer, you must not be concerned about price but instead about the ‘long term cost’ of the home.

Recently, a nationwide panel of over one hundred economists, real estate experts and investment & market strategists projected that home values would appreciate by approximately 8% from now to the end of 2015.
