Especially if you are looking to purchase another home, now is the best time, why? Record low interest rates, low property taxes that will be capped for slower increase, availability of Bargain homes to repurchase and a substantially increased market currently due to listing inventory being down by over 30%. You couldn't pick a better time to purchase, unless you would have already purchased. There are not the bargains we saw between 2008 and 2011 now. The demand has gone up and homes are selling more now than they have in the last 6 years, only we haven't see much increase in values as of yet. I am constantly helping families get out of a home for as much as possible and finding a bargain home to improve their living situations substantially every week now.
