And yes, there are deals to be had out there. We bought a home a few months ago at a price we'd never have touched a few years ago (about 60% of what the seller originally listed it for).
We priced it right, realtor recommended 119,900, we did 117,900. It's in the starter home range, where people can use the new tax credit available to them.
Here it is FWIW.
