i do not know what your future plans are with these properties, but if you plan on holding onto them for a long time I think now is a great time to buy. I have multiple investor clients - two are in the process of buying condo number 3, one is looking for a second condo, and the others are looking for their first investment property. Those who purchased already have purchased short sales, got great deals, and have been able to rent them quickly.
From what is happening out there with the low interest rates, distressed inventory and great negotiating, my investors have been very happy. You have to evaluate your long term goals and make that decision, but judging from my experience with investor buyers, now is a great time to purchase income property. I would recommend discussing your plans with your accountant and financial planner.
Best of luck to you,
