I got this from an email from Dave Ramsey
"What an exciting time to be a homebuyer! There's a huge selection, prices are down, and mortgage interest rates have never been lower. Oddly enough, though, house hunters haven't been buying—mostly because they're afraid the market hasn't hit bottom. But most analysts agree that home values will only drop a few more percentage points in most areas—if that. So there's no need to wait for the "official" bottom. If you find a home you're in love with, however, don't get lured into a bidding war. There will be plenty more homes coming on the market at a good price.
