This is an especially good time to buy a home if you are a renter. As you know rents are high in the South Bay area. Now the local economists are saying that rents are expected to rise signicantly in the next two years. For this reason, renters should think about buying a home of their own. The second reason that now is the time, is that interest rates went below 4% again! Everybody was predicting a rising interest rate environment for the past 18 months. Don't let this opportunity pass you!  ... and stop paying your landlords mortgage!
