west savage blog: Signs of a Housing Market Turnaround - 2012 Predictions - 01/23/12 03:03 PM
If last year was any sign of what will happen this year, despite the media reports of doom and gloom, we are personally optimistic. All the signs are pointing towards a housing turnaround. This morning, many of our real estate news sources had positive and encouraging things to say about the market. Low inventories, rising sales rates, historically low interest rates, and high affordability are working towards creating a balanced market. This morning, Corelogic reported that housing may turn the corner this year. The Wall Street Journal reports that sales in the market are "stirring hope" but it is not (1 comments)
west savage blog: West Savage Inventory is Down - Waaaayyyyy Down! - 01/23/12 11:53 AM
If you have noticed a general decrease in for sale signs lately, you're perceptive! With only 12 listings on the market in West Savage, 2 sales and ZERO cancelled /expired listings, in the past 45 days one might think the market is quiet. When considering only the inventory, it’s true. Inventory is WAY down. But the buyers are out there….and early. We did an Open House in The Pointe yesterday (Jan. 15) and had 9 groups of people through – somewhere in the ballpark of 25 people in all. And it’s only January. If we had to pinpoint a reason for all this scuttle, (1 comments)

west savage blog: West Savage Inventory - Affordability - 02/16/11 11:54 AM
Inventory in West Savage is still low, sitting at about 55% of normal spring/summer levels. There is no question that the Bank of America foreclosure moratorium has impacted foreclosure inventory, as many homes expected to hit the market as bank-owned have been postponed indefinitely. Buyers have been hitting the streets early this year: A slight bump in interest rates created some urgency. Metrowide, pending sales are up 3.7% for January 2011 in a year-over-year comparison. Even though a larger percentage of home sales have been foreclosure and short sale inventory (compared to traditional,) the traditional seller saw a median sales price (0 comments)
