Thank you, for asking a clear question. You identified the location you are interested in and that is the most important point when setting a time to buy. Price being the number two. This location has weathered the nationwide real estate problems with great results. This is one of the areas where prices maintained in most ranges. If you qualify rates are great but lenders want only the best until rates go up then there will be more money released. That has been the case for most of my 25 years at least. If you will share the price range you are looking at I will be happy to give you a full statistical report on what has happened in Mt. Lebanon at that price range over the last two years. Average times on market and what percent of asking price they ultimately sell for. This should give some concrete data to make the decision if now is the time for you to buy or is there a reason to wait, like you expect prices to fall, I don't see any reason for prices to fall except in one price range.
