Absolutely, YES!!! Property is priced very realistically. Rates are at record lows. Rent is high and getting higher. So whether you are purchasing a home for you and your family or you are looking for an investment property. The market has not been better. You may have to make multiple offers.
The four most important recommendations I would give you are these:
(1) Work with and take the advice and counsel of qualified professionals. The idea of getting your real estate and mortgage advice across the backyard fence or from your hairdresser's cousin's girlfriend's brother-in-law is the equivalent to performing stay-at-home major surgery.
(2) Be PATIENT. Sellers who sell in a hurry and Buyers who buy in hurry may live to regret the price, the location, the neighborhood, the house size, layout, etc. This is a large ticket item and not to be quick in or out of.
(3) Remember with real estate it is location, location, location and making the home work for you and your needs.
(4) it is better to be house poor and cash rich than to be house rich and cash poor. In other words buy a house that fits your finances and still puts money in the bank.
