As the title states, I’m wondering if now is a good time to buy a single family home? I currently live in California (Bay Area) where prices are already astronomical. I keep seeing lumber shortages and low supply of homes on the market, all while prices keep going up and interest remains low. I also hear things about an inevitable market crash coming soon. My plan is to buy a single family home and live in it while renting out a room or acquire a property with an in law and rent that out. Any thoughts, advice, considerations?
