New Home Ownership Guide Available


          A home is often the largest investment, and sometimes the only investment, that some people make. And with home prices at their lowest level in years, many are wondering if now is the right time to buy is.

          The University of Nevada Cooperative Extension (UNCE) is teaming up with other land-grant universities to help you better understand the process of buying a home. As part of eXtension web site at : http://www.extension.org, the University of Nevada Cooperative Extension is UNCE is able to gather the knowledge of financial experts across the country and help make the process of buying a home less intimidating.

          On the eXtension web site, the “Financial Security: Home Ownership” pages at:  http://www.extension.org/pages/Financial_Security:_Home_Ownership, serve as an entry point to find information to help you decide if you’re ready to buy.  A comprehensive Home Buyers Resource Guide on the site will help you evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of buying a home, based on your personal needs. There is also a buying guide to help you decide what type of home to buy, and information and worksheets to help you figure out how much you can afford.

          Real estate can appreciate or depreciate in value over time, so there is always some risk involved in purchasing a home.  Knowing these risks and planning ahead can help you to make the housing decisions that are right for you and your family.
