It’s in keeping with our proud contrarian tradition at CBS MoneyWatch, we are looking past the latest headlines at the big picture. And the big picture is that interest rates are ridiculously low, housing prices have crashed, and in a growing number of communities it is actually cheaper to buy a house than to rent one.To be sure, you’ll have to follow the new rules of real estate, as laid out by our real estate expert, Ilyce Glink.
