Shiller on Housing: "Could be an auspicious time to buy"

by Calculated Risk on 4/21/2013 10:07:00 AM

I think Professor Shiller has changed his view ... writing in the NY Times: Before Housing Bubbles, There Was Land Fever

"With rates now relatively low, this could be an auspicious time to buy a house with a fixed-rate mortgage. That could make good sense for people who aren’t out to bet on the housing or mortgage markets but are instead focused on settling into a home for the long term."
It might be an "auspicious" time to buy ... if someone can find a home for sale (there is so little inventory in many areas).
