There's never been a better time to buy a new home than right now. Prices are down, inventory is up, interest rates are historically low and because it's a buyer's market some sellers are willing to pay buyer's closing costs.
In addition, lenders have some really great loans available that require little or no down payment. There are even downpayment assitance grants available for forst time home buyers.
FYI: Because interst rates are so low you can afford to buy more home that you think you can. For example: If you buy a home for $150,000.00 and borrow 100% at 4.5% interest your payment will be approximately $760.00 per month. That same home will rent for $1,300.00 per month (almost twice as much)!
