ANCHOR LEAD: The American dream of owning a home has been questioned by some. But record numbers of potential homeowners are looking to buy into the "American Dream." Brian Osuch has more. (:60) SCRIPT: Lifestyles, I'm Brian Osuch. Despite a still sluggish economy, homeownership is at record levels of affordability. Moe Veissi is President of the National Association of Realtors. Moe, is now a good time to buy a home? CUT: (Veissi) These times are absolutely the best times to buy. Folks that are really capable of buying a home, making a down payment and carrying that mortgage couldn't find a better time. Interest rates are at all time lows, and the amount of inventory to choose from is absolutely at its peak. This is a great time to buy and invest in a house in America. SCRIPT: What are some good tips for buying a home? CUT: (Veissi) Get your finances in place. Make sure that you've contacted a realtor in the community that you're looking to buy in. Make sure that they know what your wants and needs are and what your aspirations are. Then get your documentation together. Make sure that you've got the information to prequalify yourself with a lender, and your realtor can take you through that process. SCRIPT: For more, visit house-logic-dot-com.
