Home ownership rates are the lowest they have been in the last 50 years. Yet a large portion of Americans are still renting properties, instead of enjoying a home of their own. Consumer reports believe this is an issue because of a buyer's lack of trust in their ability to purchase. It is still a long standing notion that a buyer needs 20% towards the cost of the home in order to move forward, but this isn't true. With countless down payment assistant programs, and closing cost roll-ins, a home owner could move in with as little as a few hundred to a couple thousand dollars. Which is a huge difference in the time it takes to save up to make the move.
With interest rates at an all time low, home ownership in today's market is a great investment. The money saved over a mortgage's lifespan can result in tens of thousands of dollars, if not hundreds.

This is one of the most common questions I get asked and the answer surprises many people. Most assume short sale has something to do with the time it takes to buy a home but these deals often take longer than a typical transaction.
In this case, “short” refers to the amount of money the lender will recoup from the sale of the house. A short sale is a transaction, approved by the mortgage company, in which the lender will accept less than what is owed on the house. While a short sale will be reflected on the seller’s credit report, it usually looks better than a foreclosure.
For buyers, short sales can sometimes mean a good deal. However, lenders are often slow to move on these transactions and may not accept offers that have contingencies attached (i.e. the sale of another home). Buyers with cash to invest are best situated to take advantage of short sales and foreclosures. We continue to see a number of short sales in the Nashville real estate market.
