“When it comes to purchasing a home, timing really is everything. Some recent buyers have been extraordinarily lucky, with home values that have roughly doubled in as little as four years. When the real estate bubble burst, they bought at the lowest point in their local markets.”, Laura Thompson, Zillow, July 21, 2015

“I agree!!! Yet, how come Zillow, nor a buyer’s Realtor, appraiser, or mortgage lender advise prospective buyer’s on the importance of timing? I’ll tell you why. It’s because they don’t get paid anything unless you BUY!!! Might this be why Nobel Laureate Shiller constantly says that U.S. homebuyers are irrational? I am building an application to help prospective homebuyers make more rational decisions about buying a home, with a mortgage.”, Mike Perry, former Chairman and CEO, IndyMac Bank
