To Buy a Home or Not To Buy a Home

Mansions aside, you may be contemplating whether it makes sense to jump into this crazy housing market or continue to rent. In a recent podcast, money expert Clark Howard said, "It really depends on your particular market."

Clark advises you to look up the real estate prices in the entire metro area of your target market to determine whether it makes sense to buy a home there.

“Even in an expensive metro area, there are huge variations of what prices are on homes from one part of an expanded metro area to another,” he says.

“Where normally I say, ‘Go find a part of town that you like and then start looking for a home,’ now I say, ‘Do the opposite.’ Go look at what prices are in different parts of town, and find the lowest-cost part of town that you’d be happy living in. That’s where you should be doing your search for a home.”

Here’s Clark’s step-by-step process on how to buy a home.
