In some parts of the bay area, buying  is a better deal than renting, however in virtually all of the higher priced areas, renting will still cost you much less than buying. So, there isn't a one size fits all answer.

Most certainly buy. Home prices have been depressed so much that the mortgage with 20% down payment is lower than the rent for equivalent properties. Sadly not many first time home buyers have the 20% down payment readily at hand. Loans for 5-10% down payment are available and rates are not that bad. Home buyers should look into these options.
