Getting a CFP is overkill for your situation. If anything, a CFP will likely convince you to allocated your money to something more lucrative for a CFP, like stocks or a mutual fund, under the guise of higher long-term returns. Unless you have a 20 year investment horizon, equity investments are risky. While stocks have returned 8% over the very long-term, that's no guarantee they'll continue that rate of appreciation over the next 10 years. For the average investor, the return is much lower, from overhead costs of management, including the cost for a CFP, and transaction fees. While getting a CPA is a prudent way to verify your tax implications, you can get good advice from any licensed investment advisor with a dose of common sense.
As for the outlook on housing, consider that we've just had the steepest housing correction in history and many people still believe the worst is yet to come. This sounds remarkably like the same people who were projecting home prices to shoot to the moon during the heights of the housing boom. No one can foretell the future, no matter what certifications they have. Your gut feelings are as valid as any.
