A lot has been printed, broadcast and said about the looming fiscal cliff and the impending financial diaster. While in principal the experts, fiscal watchdogs, skeptics and others all have valid points. individuals who have jobs, careers, children and dreams for a better life should take a more micro approach to their financial situation. After all, if we all looked at the economy as a time bomb waiting to explode, then it would become a self fulfilling prophecy. Home ownership is personal and is still one of the most important driving factors of a stable economy and a balanced society. Of course this is no secret. Once speculation, whether rising home prices or rising personal income, exited the housing market, the prices and the ability to get financing for homes became more realistic. Today, an indiviudal with a good job and sound, planned direction for their future can purchase a home at a good value and with affordable payments.
