Should I Buy a Home Right Now?
Should I buy a home right now, or should I wait until things settle down? This question is probably running through your head if you've been giving home ownership some thought recently. Although no one can provide you with an answer to that issue, the following information may be of use to you as you make your choice.

As the graph illustrates, even if the rate of growth in your neighborhood is more ordinary, you still have the potential to generate considerable equity gains as the value of your property rises. This is what you risk by delaying the implementation of your plans.
If you are interested in purchasing a home and are prepared to do so, you should be aware that buying a house now can position you for long-term success.
