Do real estate agents ever say, "now isn't a good time to buy?"

Of course that would depend on the situation. If you are not financially ready to purchase then it wouldn't be "a good time to buy". This is once instance and there are more. Housing prices are starting to go up and the inventory is shrinking, so for a lot of people, who have been waiting, this could be a good time to seriously start looking.

Trulia Fort Lauderdale,

This is an odd question. What are you really trying to learn?

Perhaps a more appropriate place to post this question would be the Agent2Agent section. Also, taking the time to clarify your question would be helpful.

Best of luck!

Yes, when it isn't a good time to buy. But the truth is, even when it isn't a good time to buy, people still need housing. New job opportunities in distant places don't only present themselves when the market is consducive to buying. So, an honest agent, when asked, will say "now isn't a good time to buy...but, if you need a place, let's go find one..."

No, because there are always opportunities if you're looking for them.

Along the same lines, do advertising reps ever say, "now isn't a good time to buy advertising?"

We are an optimistic bunch by nature and while I can't remember every discouraging a buyer in that way, I have recomended in the past to some property owners that it might not be the best time to sell. That is not the case today!
