True. It may not be wise to buy a home when you consider factors like the economy and money. Nonetheless, you have to consider that buying a house has other personal benefits, ones that don't have a value in money.

In the end, you have to think carefully. If you want to buy a home, be sure that you are capable of paying for it. Design long-term plans that you can finish.

Many real estate forecasters had predicted that prices would continue to decline and an uptick in foreclosures in 2011. Both came true. The Bubble is more of a fizz-fizz, but with prices falling every month in the majority of the top 25 real estate metropolitan markets, there is always a danger of investing in a property, being unable to sell the property, and see a slow, painful decay in your equity. Most banks now require at least 25% down, to protect themselves, but they are interested in live-in buyers with good credit, and adequate income to insure they can make the monthly mortgage payments, insurance and taxes.

It's very tough to predict the best time to purchase a home. Hmm... the best way to find out the opportune time is to observe and analyze the real estate bubble and its ripple effect on our personal finances.

Great post! Although it is a really bad time for sellers, don't you think this is an excellent time for buyers? Your post suggests that one shouldn't purchase a home, but if the prices are lower, wouldn't this be the prime time to buy...especially a foreclosure? Just wanted to hear your thoughts...thanks!
