Is it a waste to rent? Sometimes it is. The real trick is to know when to buy and when to stay renting. The best of predictions are of little use. If you get lucky you can jump into the housing market in a buyers market and make an amazing deal. Many have thought that housing was at an all time low only to have it go south. If you need to be advised as to when to jump in then you are in the same boat with many others. If we all jump on the home buying trend at the same time it will drive pricing upward. That would be a good deal. Tim DeCapua is a luck one when it comes to real estate.
