It depends if you are planning to stay more than a couple of years, I would definately suggust its a great time to buy,The rates are low and there is lots of inventory available to see. If you do have bad credit then it would be a good idea to rent till your credit is straightened out,consult an experienced loan officer for details.It is also depending on the area you have choosen to live. Should you have any question feel free to call me anytime on my cell at 914-589-6741

Hey Jill,

It depends where you want to go, every market in the boroughs is different,. for example in Staten island, is a great time to buy a one bedroom apartment they range from 100k to 200k, rather than rent. In Brooklyn or the city, depending on your financial circumstances, I think the prospect of renting is more reasonable.

Well, I hope this helps, if you have any questions dont hesitate to contact me
