I'm sure there are many people asking the question, "Is now the right time to
buy?". Nobody really knows for sure. However, there are some facts that you
can look at to help evaluate whether or not now is the right time to buy. For
one, mortgage rates are currently close to the lowest they've been in almost
50 years. In addition, home prices are low and probably close to the bottom.
There may be a little more ways to go, but I think we're close. With the
Spring homebuying season upon us, we may see an increase in sellers in the
market, which will increase inventory and possible push home values even
lower. Read more
According to Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, an economic recovery will
not begin until next year. Read more
Along with low home prices and low mortgage rates, there's also the
First-Time Homebuyer Tax Credit of up to $8,000. This is an additional

SEATTLE, WA -- (Marketwired) -- 09/27/13 -- Defensive-oriented stocks in
Europe have bounced back since Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke recently
announced the decision to continue its historic bond buying program. After
gravitating toward more dynamic-oriented stocks and moving away from
defensive-oriented stocks when Bernanke first discussed tapering on May 22,
in the past week investors appear to have moved back into defensive-oriented
European stocks and sectors, as illustrated by the Russell Indexes.
After underperforming the Russell Developed Europe Dynamic Index by mor... (more)
The following blog entry, from March 10, 2009 expressed my opinion on Mr.
Bernanke. Eight months later the majority of the congress and a great portion
of the financial world seem to agree with my opinions below. Rewind the tape
and watch his opinions on the housing disaster and the direction our banking
system took. He says everything is cool, and there is nothing to worry about

Or how I learned to stop worrying and love Quantitative Easing.
This is it, the US pressed the nuclear button, buying its own treasuries in
order to flood the market with paper and depress long term rates.
Theft on a grand scale, international theft at that. The masses timidly
applaud. The dollar tanks, the US markets rally. Why do they rally? QE is
effectively delayed "inflation". Inflation means you are poorer but the
numbers are up so you feel "richer". Inflation is an unfair tax as it is
essentially a flat tax on the poor. More fair would be debt moratorium on
fake money issued... (more)
