“While the decision to own a home is a personal one, for people with good jobs and strong credit, today’s low mortgage interest rates and continued affordability make now a good time to buy a home,” said Kevin Green, president of the Greensboro Regional REALTORS® Association. “Remember, all real estate is local, so it’s important to work with a Greensboro REALTOR® who is familiar with your desired community.”
