Good Time to Buy
The share of Americans who say it is a good time to buy a home increased 4 percentage points to 15 percent in January compared with December, according to a monthly survey from Fannie Mae. The share is still down sizably from the start of 2018, when housing demand was soaring and home prices were rising at a much faster clip.
Home price gains have been shrinking since last summer and are now rising at the slowest pace in more than six years, according to CoreLogic. Consequently, the share of Americans who say home prices will go up fell 1 percentage point to 30 percent. That share has been declining for four straight months and is down a whopping 22 percentage points from a year ago, according to Fannie Mae. [read article from CNBC.com ]

It is not just our home environment that influences us; the neighborhood in which we live does too. A close-knit neighborhood can provide a sense of belonging, safety, and support. Some interesting ideas are associated with living in a type of main street urban suburb.
According to this article in Niche.com here a few things to consider:
Proximity to both urban and suburban amenities. Urban suburbs tend to lie between a city and its more traditional suburban communities, which make its residents perfectly placed to take advantage of the amenities of both areas. You’ll likely be just as close to the city’s boutique shops and cultural venues as you are to the big box stores and large parks in the suburbs.
Small, close-knit feel. Urban suburbs have a small town feel, and can give you a real sense of belonging.
One person can make a big difference. The smaller community in an urban suburb means that your volunteer work and activism can make a proportionately bigger difference in the lives of your neighbors, whether it is serving in the local government, helping with beautification efforts, or volunteering with local organizations.
