What Does Warren Buffet Think About Buying A Home?

Warren Buffet is seen by many as the greatest investor of our time. When he speaks, people listen. Like anyone else in his position of influence, he is criticized by some for using his bullhorn to promote his own business agendas at times. That makes it very interesting when we occasionally learn of how he privately advises those closest to him.

Such a situation occurred this week. Debbie Bosanek, Warren Buffet’s secretary of 37 years, recently purchased a second home in Surprise, Arizona.

In an article in the Omaha World Herald, Mrs. Bosanek discussed her reasons for purchasing a second home and the personal advice she received from Mr. Buffet.

“I just thought it was time to buy a home. Warren tells me that it will be the best opportunity in my lifetime. Mortgage rates are low and prices have dropped dramatically…I share Warren’s view about the future of America, and we believe that our country will do just fine. I’m happy to make this investment.”

The greatest investor of the last century privately has told the people closest to him that buying a home right now will be the best opportunity in [their] lifetime”.

That’s good enough for us. How about you?

    When else in the last 50 yrs have you had both relatively low home prices and the lowest interest rate in history?  If you can qualify for a loan, it is the best long term investment you will see in this lifetime.

    Great post. Obvious it is very dependent on the absorption rate in “your” given market, but the fundamentals are there. Ivy Zelman, a globally recognized housing expert called the bottom in housing on CNBC a few weeks back. I love what I’m seeing in King County (Seattle) as well.
