Although the real estate market was tough in 2008 as you will see below, 319 homes sold in Rochester. People still have to move and homes still do sell regardless of the market. With that said, here is A Little Perspective on the Real Estate Market: • More than 1000 banks closed in 1930 (three years before the FDIC was created) BUT Only 14 banks have been taken over in 2008, • There are 76 million households in the US that own their home--24 million of these homes are owned free and clear, • There are 52 million homes with mortgages in the (0 comments)
rochester nh: Rochester NH Real Estate - October 2008 Market Update - 11/22/08 08:33 PM
Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist noted in October that, "A trend away from subprime mortgages to FHA loans, which often carry much lower interest rates, is a positive development for consumers and the house market going forward. Still, it will take some time for the change to yield a measurably higher closed sales volume in the aftermath of the subprime collapse. In the near term, we expect home sales to remain fairly stable." As real estate markets are local, here's what happened in the Rochester market in October: 31 homes sold in Rochester in October: - 23 single family homes, - (0 comments)

rochester nh: Rochester NH Real Estate - July 2008 Market Update - 08/17/08 09:46 PM
Although, the housing market has slowed, Housing Predictor, an independent real estate market forecaster says that the next 12 months will be the best time to invest in the U.S. housing market. I know what you're thinking...just another real estate agent telling me to get into the market. BUT, veteran real estate investors know that when it looks bad, that is the time to pull the trigger and buy real estate to have the highest probability of making top profits. With this said I'm hoping you can do me a favor...if you hear of someone who might like to take advantage (0 comments)

rochester nh: Rochester NH Real Estate - May 2008 Market Update - 06/15/08 10:29 AM
An important thing to keep in mind when it comes to real estate is that each and every town is different. Depending on where you are in the country, one town can be thriving and the next town over can be in a slump. This can also be true for large cities-certain sections of a city can be desirable...others not so much. Please keep this in mind when you listen to the news. Reporters are often giving you statewide or national market data and your home town is not the "national market". With that said, let's see what's been going on (0 comments)
rochester nh: Rochester, NH Real Estate - April Market Update - 05/16/08 10:33 PM
The latest forecast by the National Association of Realtors (NAR) claims that existing-home sales are projected to trend up in 2008. I definitely see that happening here in the Seacoast.

Yes, he said did say improvement in the Northeast! Let's check out what's been going on in Rochester, NH. 25 homes sold in Rochester in April -19 single family homes, and - (0 comments)
rochester nh: Rochester New Hampshire Real Estate - March Market Update - 04/07/08 05:22 PM
You might not believe it, BUT, the National Association of Realtors stated recently that sales of existing homes rose to a 5.03 million annual rate in February which is an unexpected 2.9% increase. Why? The answer is that sales are being spurred by lower prices. Falling prices improve affordability and encourage people to make purchases. In addition to existing home sales, new construction homes for sale at the end of February dropped to 471,000 units (in the US), the fewest since July 2005. Rising sales and lower prices have also stimulated the mortgage market. This is due in part to recent (0 comments)
