It seems there are few places on the earth where you can’t get a better deal. Whether it’s shoes or hats, pedicures or hair-dos, you can usually find a lower price.

Today, we’re seeing unusually high demand and a woefully low supply… which means home prices will be going up. Part of the reason is that interest rates are still low.
