Homeownership is still part of the American Dream! With mortgage rates now above 6%, some may be wondering if they could even afford to buy a home. Consider this for a moment. If you pay $1,250 to $1,600 a month for rent, you may be able to afford a $200,000 home in Siouxland for the same monthly payment!
Kristie VerMulm of United Real Estate Solutions sat down with Angie Van Otterloo of Central Bank to break down the myths about the real estate market and look at the affordability of buying a home.
