The drawback I can see from waiting is losing out on the historical low interest rate. Who knows what the interest rate would be next year. Right now it is below 4 percent- usually for creditworthy mortgage applicants.

Will it be the same next year? Who knows? The next favorable condition is that the prices of the houses have not spiked yet. Will it be higher next year? Maybe, as we are seeing inventories getting low.

Best of Luck.

Well, maybe you shouldn't.

I would never make a blanket statement that everyone should buy now.

This is an individual decision - much depends, and is based on, on the person's specific circumstances and situation..
