Clark Howard Buying = Real Estate Market Bottom!

by Rodney Forbes on April 14, 2009

This video is a great example of what bargains are out there for home buyers, especially first time home buyers. Foreclosures and short sales make up the majority of pending home sales in the Palm Beach Gardens and the Palm Beach County area.

I bought my first home in the Atlanta area where Clark Howard lives and it seemed like the same deal he is looking at. I still own the home and it’s rented as a long term investment. I can say without a doubt: if Clark Howard is thinking of buying a home the market has definitely reached a bottom. He’s a notorious penny-pincher and has an eye for a great deal.

You can see an example of a similar deal I closed in the Port St. Lucie area where the home originally sold for $292,000 and we negotiated for the buyers a price of $140,000!
