If you want to buy a home for your own use and plan to live in it for a few years find a home you love at a price you can afford and enjoy. Markets change, they go up more than they go down, but both can happen as we've all seen. In my experience over a 10 year period things work out even if you bought at the peak, provided you can afford the home and need a place to live.
If you are trying to time the market as an investor, you need to listen to other voices. That's a specialty and it will always come down to what house, at what price, in what condition and what can you do with it.
