It certainly is a good time to buy. It's good that more people are taking their time though and really thinking about the home purchase. Rather than just jumping on the first good deal they find. Like the people in this article, many are really taking into consideration the area that they want to stay in for the long run. After all, with prices and interest rates this low, owning a home is more attainable (if you meet the lending requirements at least).
