Feds Keep Rates Low - Home Values Pre Hike - New Risk Assessments in Place to Prepare for Purchase Hike

Now is the time to purchase if you have the means. Banks are making moves preparing for this hike and nobody can do anything except speculate at this point. 

However you can take my advice, buy now or wait another 6 to 10 years for the next dip. If you own a home in CA and have no desire to own another, enjoy the ride, your equity is about to increase substantially.
