I definitely appreciate and agree with my colleages ! This time frame in the Silicon Valley housing recovery is at the elbow phase on the recovery curve. Watch out on the price of home escalation when articke like this comes out like Saratoga school district is rated the best in the whole USA when the rest of the Nation want to send the kids over here for schooling :)

I have to agree with John - it was a good time to buy for the last couple years. Now it is still good to buy as the priced in a lot of areas are still depressed and the interest rates are at all-times low.

It's been a good time to buy for the past couple of years with home values and interest rates where they are. It's all about motivation and capability. I say if you're ready and have the means go for it.

It is a great time to buy - the best in 10 years.. I just read an article saying the housing bust is over. .I agree though with a gentleman below that it also has to be the right time for YOUR family.

Not only is it important for the market and economy to be right.....the timing for buying a home has to be right for the buyer as well.

The fact that many good potential buyers have been removed from the picture because of financial hardship resulting in short sales and foreclosures isn't something that will bring buyers to the table. As we have witnessed, the RE market is about much more than home prices......we are headed in the right direction but are not out of the woods yet.

Respectfully,

Bill
