In my opinion, yes it is. As a general rule, if you plan on living in a home from 3 to 5 years, you will be able to sell it for a profit. Buy wisely, however. Investigate the past sales amounts of the home, the condition and the neighborhood comps. You should be able to get a great deal in this market and that will help you to build equity. There are some beautiful homes and streets in th Heights. Interview a few real estate agents and let them advise you as their service is free to you as a buyer! Good luck.
