Real Estate with Debbie Matenopoulos
To buy or not to buy? That is the question and TV host Debbie Matenopolous is here to answer. With the housing market on the rise, Debbie discusses real estate trends and the influence location has on the price tag. Thanks to modern tecnhology, Debbie takes us on a live tour via FaceTime of a 1927 starter home for sale for $639,000 near the "Home & Family" studio. Before committing on the purchase of a house, Debbie advises that you consider affordability, the history of the house, why it's for sale, if there are disclosures, and perform "The Goldilocks Test" to determine if it's "just right" for your needs. All the family members discuss the pros and cons of the home and each decides if it's worth the investment.
