Half-Price Houses: Available All Over the Country

Mar 20, 2012 7:14am

From December 2011 to January 2012, the most recent data available, home sales increased by four percent.  That could be because of two key factors: home prices are down and interest rates are down.

In fact, it’s easy to see why more people might not only be dipping a toe in the water, but jumping in with both feet!

Right now, there are homes for sale at half the price they went for during the real estate bubble.  They’re available at all price points, all across the country.
