In this episode of Everyone's Talkin' Money, I'm back with another fascinating topic: home buying in today's market and whether it's a good time to buy real estate. I was walking around my neighborhood this morning and was blown away by the number of people selling, buying, and remodeling houses. I was thinking there’s so much talk about high-interest rates and how expensive housing prices have gotten, but it doesn’t seem to be deterring anyone from going about their normal buying, selling, and remodeling home business. So then I thought, if you’re looking to buy your first home, is there ever a “right” time to buy? Lucky for us, Bianca D’Alessio, who is the Ranked #1 Real Estate Broker in New York and New York State and #14 in the Nation for 2022, manages a $10B real estate portfolio for Nest Seekers International and is the Star of Selling the Hamptons on Max(formerly known as HBO) is our guest.
