Some ad guy somewhere decided that no matter what industry you work in, no matter what service you provide and no matter what product you sell, the tag-line of the year needed to be “Now is a great time to buy!” You need a car? You are in luck! It’s a great time to buy. In the market to buy a house? Fantastic! It’s a great time to buy. How about a fireplace? You need one of those heading into summer time, well shoot! It’s a great time to buy! To all those people who can’t afford to buy right now, no worries, when you do get the cash they will be sure to hike the prices back up just to make it that much more painful.
