If you think prices will get lower in 2009 think again, for any savings you might get on the sales price will be offset by the increased loan levels for conforming loans.  If you have to move up to jumbo loans, interest rates are not only higher but you need to have more money down and impeccable credit.

There are great investment opportunities in San Mateo County, Santa Clara County, Alameda County and Contra Costa County.  All of these are fairly close to home and easy to manage.
