OK so with the lowered prices of homes, I wanted to know would it be a good idea to invest on purchasing a home while in medical school and with the current market conditions? There are some homes in my area that have dropped 40%! I feel like my rent could go to paying off a mortgage. What are my chances? I know I would need my parents help, thats for sure. Does anyone think its possible or have the same thoughts I do? Let mme know your opinions.
