We can not accurately predict that housing prices are going to continue to drop or start rising. Although, there are indications that we have or are reaching bottom with prices appearing to have stabilized. What you should be looking at is the affordability of housing with historically low interest rates below 4% and today's prices to purchase a home. Combined....it's the cheapest it's been in 40 years! Rental prices are rising making it less expensive to own. Get off the fence and BUY!!!!
