Absolutely. It is still a buyers market. A lot of the homes currently on the market that is for sale is priced lower than what they should be selling for. So you are getting a bargain. And with interest rates still low,it even makes it much better for you to buy right now. With spring approaching and the market just about bottomed out,you want to buy now before prices start rising again. But before you get preapprove,please prequalify yourself first. Whatever you are paying for rent,please add an additional 40% to it. That will cover gas,electricity,water,home insurance,property tax and other minor maintainance that might need to be done around the house.
