fl miramar: The evolution of the buyer - 11/18/09 06:35 AM
Buyers are evolving, and for the better. Up until the beginning of 2009, an abundance of inventory, coupled with a 'sky is falling" mentality lead many to believe that the real estate market was theirs for the taking. They were now in the driver's seat! And as a result they were submitting such ridiculously low-ball offers that most often didn't stand a chance of being considered.
