With more homes on the market than in recent memory and so many sellers searching for the ever elusive "right buyer", new home builders have continued to over build. Finally, someone has said to the new home builders - "Slow down". The chief economist and director of research at the Real Estate Center at Texas A&M University, Mark Dotzour, stated that the continued building of spec homes is causing prospective home buyers to expect price concessions from all sellers. Mr. Dotzour was quoted as stating "Every month that new homes are sold with substantial concessions is another month that homeowners will (11 comments)
Sellers: Listen to Your Agent. Heed Advice from Past NAR President. - 11/10/07 12:54 PM
If your goal is to sell your home as quickly as possible and for as much money as possible, listen to your agent. Our current market is no where near the sales level of 2005 or 2006. More properties are on the market than there have been in years. Nobody wants your home to be for sale for an extended period of time, especially not your agent. No matter what profit you are aiming for or how much you need to net from the sale, listen to your agent, especially in terms of pricing. Take the past president of the National (4 comments)

Add some new mulch and weed your flower beds. Add some plants around the front door and even around the (9 comments)

Housing Sales Lower but Rents Rising. - 11/04/07 11:38 PM
The current housing market shows sales are off at least 10% from last year's numbers and even more in certain parts of the county. Many buyers are simply not buying right now or waiting for a more perfect storm (if there is such a thing), The people who are profitting the most right now are landlords. Rental rates across the country are on the rise as buyers hesitate. The other factor that is adding to this absence of buyers in the market is the tighter lender qualifications to get a mortgage. A lot of the mortgage programs that were available even (8 comments)
