I called a neighbor the other day to find out if she was interested in selling her home... I have a possible buyer. She had an Agent in our area make this home available for showing today... It is not listed in the MLS, but the owner had asked her to show and handle the property. The owners have had an appraisal done, but have or will not share the results with their agent, (so I assume it is low) ... and they have not named a price for the house. The agent said "they are looking for an offer". (5 comments)

Via Gabe Sanders, Stuart Florida Real Estate (Premier Realty Group): Home prices have hit bottom in most areas of the country, but they're not like a rubber ball.

There are still too many foreclosed homes on the market. So, what did the center's co-director do? He bought a house. He doesn't expect its value to rise much in the foreseeable future. But the home had features he loved. (1 comments)
