10 Reasons to buy a home

Never mind what the media says - homes are still being bought and sold.  Of all the articles I have read about why this a buyers market, a recent Wall Street Journal article sums it up best.  Following are the top 10 reasons to buy a home now.

1. Get some great deals.
2. Mortgages are cheap.
3. Save on taxes.
4. Pride of ownership.
5. Offers some inflation protection.
6. Preferred risk capital (as opposed to stock market)
7. Forced savings
8. High inventory, more choices
9. Better homes for sale (as opposed to rent)
10. Sooner or later market will grow.
