The two-time Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Realtor of the Week Bob Arnold of Realty Executives Integrity says that real estate is like the stock market: there is a good time to buy and a good time to sell. With homes at 2000-2004 prices—well below their 2006 peak values—and sales improving for the last five consecutive months, Arnold believes this is the time to invest in Metro Milwaukee real estate. He offers a service to determine if clients can save money buying over renting a home.

According to the Greater Milwaukee Association of REALTORS (GMAR), Milwaukee home sales jumped 24.3% in November, 2011. This marks the fifth month in a row that sales have increased in the four-county metropolitan area. Leading Milwaukee Real Estate agent Bob Arnold believes that prospective home buyers and investors who have waited for the right time to enter or get back into the market should move now.

“Historically, real estate has been a pretty safe investment,” said the two-time Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Realtor of the Week. “But, just like the stock market, there is a good time to buy and a good time to sell homes. I believe that the area’s low prices and interest rates coupled with steady improvements in sales make this is a good time to buy. My recommendation to buyers is, Beat the curve and be in Control” Bob talks about all the advantages on one of his web site

Arnold, a top REALTOR and consultant with Realty Executives Integrity, says that home prices peaked nationally in July, 2006, yet current home prices in the four-county Metro Milwaukee market are about what they were in 2000 to 2004. At the same time, interest rates are at an all-time low, and are expected to stay that way well into 2012.

These market conditions have investors coming out of the woodwork and buying up property, promoting confidence in the market, says Arnold. Renters are also buying when they discover they can save money from a home purchase.

“I do analysis for buyers on a regular basis to help them understand the advantages of owning a home vs. renting,” said Arnold. “In many cases, you can purchase a home for lower monthly costs than those of renting.”
