While all real estate is local, there are many positive signs being seen all across the Northeast and in other major regional markets across the country. The next several months will be critical in determining if the recent upswing has any sustained staying power.
In recent months, it is not uncommon to see properties attracting multiple bids, however the majority of these are not necessarily resulting in sales prices coming in over asking price, rather than buyers recognizing a good value when they see one and sellers having a better choice of qualified buyers from which to choose.
There is a certain amount of "pent-up demand" on both the buying and selling side of this market as many buyers and sellers have been sitting on the fence for several years now and see that the pendulum is beginning to swing in the other direction and as a result, they are taking action.
Prices are expected to remain steady and interest rates continue to hover at record low rates. There has rarely been a time where both prices AND interest rates were so low. Combine these two factors with a relatively high inventory of homes to choose from and you have the perfect conditions for a robust and steady housing recovery. The general state of the economy along with a high rate of foreclosures and distressed properties are expected to keep prices low for several more years as this inventory eventually gets cleared out.
