A starter home or starter house is a house that is usually the first which a person or family can afford to purchase, often using a combination of savings and mortgage financing. In the real estate industry the term commonly denotes small one- or two-bedroom houses, often older homes but sometimes low-cost new developments. The concept originated in the United States during the post-World War II era when entry-level home ownership was a preferred option for young families and regarded as part of the American Dream.

When Is the Best Time to Refinance?   A: Many people flock to refinance while mortgage interest rates are low, particularly when rates are two percentage points below their existing home loans.

The Question of "When is a good time to buy real estate?"  Uncle Sam lowered rates = (residential home loan interest rate will remain low through 2012 and 2013). 30-year fixed-rate mortgages are less than 5 percent, yes less than five percent. During November, 2011, 30 year home loan interest rates dipped below four percent, these are unheard of rates. It's almost like free money, not to mention if you equate current low home prices or short sale opportunities.

Everyone wants the real estate market to get better: Real estate agents are selling less homes than they once were, taking a huge decrease in take home pay. Builders are selling about one-tenth as many homes as they were selling in 2005. Appraisers have recently taken blame for the housing crisis, for either over-appraising residential property or under-appraising homes. Consumer markets are also waiting impatiently for a rebound of their local real estate markets.
