When planning to buy your home, I would worry less about timing the market (i.e. "Is now a good time to buy?") and, instead, focus on the following:1) Can my monthly budget "afford" the estimated mortgage payment?2) Do I have 3-6 months of expenses saved in a "rainy day" account (in case of job loss - above and beyond a down payment)?Certainly, there are a plethora of different analytics and criteria if you're making a real estate investment decision. However, on a macro-level, if your answer to the 2 questions above is "yes" then you are well on your way to home ownership, in my opinion.
Low rates and relatively low prices amounts to a great buying opportunity. If you have a good steady job, and good outlook on future income, then buying now will pay huge divendends in the future. I just bought my 3rd rental and expect to have it paid off in 15 years. Go for it. We are in a period now that in 10 years we will have wished we were more bullish on this great buying opportunity.
