I agree with Tish. It does depends on your time frame. Main question you need to ask yourself is when may this job opportunity arise? Yes, we are at all time lows with mortgages interset rates and yes, it is a great time to buy with the tax credit, but is it the right time for you is the question. Between 7 agents (including myself) their are a few different answers to this question. To really know if you should buy now you need to sit down with an agent and run numbers to honestly know if buying a house right now is the right choice for you and your husband, if you opportunity arises and you need to sell within the next year. I just listed a house that my client purschased in September through another agent. I can get her out of the house, one because she bought the house at a good price and two she has down payment money for the next purchase,. She will not walk away with much money once I sell it, but she will be walking away with money.
I hope all of our answers help you in some way.
I would be happy to sit down and run some numbers with you.
