I don't think it have escaped anyone that the U.S economy or market or whatever you want to call it, is a bit rocky right now. I'm not afraid to say that I have no idea what is going on. Okay...with that said, we did notice the drop of house prices. Which is of course, a bit tempting to say the least. We live in a rental house right now. The rent is about what we would pay for mortgage around here, with current prices. Actually I think the mortgage would be less but then there's insurances..and stuff like that. But...here's where we need some insight from some older and more experienced folks... Why would it be bad or good to buy a house right now?
