It's a GREAT time to Buy!
That said, if you are a seller, it would also be to your benefit to contact an experienced Realtor. The experienced Realtor will know the market conditions on a daily basis and could possibly earn you many dollars more by helping to price your home according to current market.
If you are in the market to purchase a home, to be in the very best position to purchase, I would recommend that you contact a lender and ask to be pre-qualified. That will enable you to not only present an offer, but to accompany that offer with a letter of pre-qualification from your lender.
