William Procida - Founder, CEO, Procida Funding & Advisors LLC
"Real estate always goes up. It's just a matter of time," states William Procida, founder/CEO, Procida Funding and Advisors LLC. "Real estate values have gone up over the past 200 years and now is the best time to buy a home -- no question," he advises. When considering buying a home, buy it because you like it and want to live in it. Ten years from now it's going to be worth a lot more. Mortgages are available, just not as easy to get. Some loans are as low as 3 percent down; however, you should really put 10 percent down. Commercial developers are in the same shape as home owners with investments worth much less at the moment than the original costs. If you're in trouble and trying to save your home, keep talking to the bank. They don't want your house. Learn more from Procida on Getting Your Money's Worth with Judith West.
