Have you heard the expression "a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush". I think that can be applied to the real estate market. Prices are down and firming, interest rates are close to all time lows. I think taking advantage of what you know is a good thing is a better path than hoping things bottom out more, interest rates stay low and buying power is better. But that is just my opinion. Good luck. If you are looking to buy in the Aurora area, that is my area of expertise along with the surrounding communities. I live in Aurora and my main business is focused in that market.
