Next put to paper what you are wanting to get. Not the number of bedrooms and baths but describe the lifestyle you are looking for. Put those together select your agent and see if there is anything out there that meets your needs and finances. This should give you the hard facts needed to make the decision.
All the Best.
That's a very relative question. Just wondering why you ask. Do you have reservations? If so, it's best to write them down and find out if they are based on fact or fear. Also, before you buy, it's best to know what you're getting into if you're a first time home buyer or if buying is right for you at this point in time. If you're not a first time home buyer, then my suggestion is discuss your reservations, if you have any, with a Realtor.

The absolute worst thing any potential buyer could do is to remove themselves from being active, searching for that perfect opportunity. At this point, remaining current with market availability could find you in the eventual position of identifying the perfect opportunity....the ideal home, in a great location, being offered at a price you just can't walk away from.
You will never find a Realtor that will tell you it's a bad time to buy! Benny Smith obviously is here to prove me wrong! :-)
That being said, rates are at historic lows, there are lots olf distressed properties on the market.
and bargains available.
Lets compare to 2006. You could by a $300,000 home at 6% for a payment of $1800.
That $300,000 home now costs $210,000 and interest rates are in the low 3's. So now your payment is just over $900.Thats a 50% discount to 2006 cost of housing.
YES its a great time to buy!
