For the past year, we've been urging potential buyers to take the plunge. Low lending rates and a low-cost-basis on homes significantly raise the probability of entering a profitable transaction. We continue to urge buyers to take the plunge.

We've also noted that the sin of procrastination means many of the better deals have been taken. Fortunately, there are still many good deals left. The market remains a buyer's market.

We are not alone in our sentiment. The online financial Website Business Insider offers a detailed slide show that buttresses our argument. When interest rates, home affordability, wage growth, and the widening gap between rents and mortgage payments are aggregated, Business Insider opines convincingly there has never been a better time to buy a home.

Seeing where the market has been over the past year and seeing where it is expected to go in the future, we'd be hard pressed to disagree with their opinion.
