Re: To buy or not to buy-Credit history-Mortgage...

I think you're counting too much on price appreciation. Look what happened 10 to 5 years ago- prices halved in some places. How do you know we're not at a peak now? I wouldn't buy until at least your...

Re: Realtor question - seller realtor participation in showings
