Tips For Navigating The Housing Market


While many people are still trying to dig out from under bad mortgages, new data shows that foreclosures are actually down in the Kansas City area, compared to the first six months of last year. And some people are finding that it's a pretty good time to buy a house. KCUR's Susan B. Wilson spoke to Certified Financial Planner David Jackson, of Waddell and Reed, for his thoughts on buying, or keeping, a home.

A native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Susan admits that her “first love” was radio, being an avid listener since childhood. However, she spent much of her career in mental health, healthcare administration, and sports psychology (Susan holds a PhD in clinical psychology from the University of Pittsburgh in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania and an MBA from the Bloch School of Business at UMKC.) In the meantime, Wilson satisfied her journalistic cravings by doing public speaking, providing “expert” interviews for local television, and being a guest commentator/contributor to KPRS’s morning drive time show and the teen talk show “Generation Rap.”
