Good time to buy a house?Submitted by an_eddie on Mon, 03/18/2013 - 13:08
I am looking to buy (put a big down payment down) for a house within the next 1-3 years or so. I'm in the state of WA, and i'm currently looking in the Everett / Snohomish / Millcreek area.
Note that this would be my first home. I don't have any debt. I have a decent income.
Question: Should I wait for a dip (it seems almost imminent these days) or should I buy now? I keep hearing that the area i'm looking at is going through a growth period (i.e. new houses being built, real estate is going up on a monthly basis, big companies within the area are hiring).
Thanks for your thoughts.
