There is a change in the air. Can you feel it? What kind of change you ask-a change in the real estate market, a slight change in the markets natural adjustment of supply and demand. And, without government intervention I might add. Anyway, yesindeed, there is that feel, from an experts opinion, the real estate market is tweaking itself in trying to attain some balance. Looking closely at MLS statistics and hearing the publics plans and opinions gives credence to an effort of the markets natural desire of balance. Usually, at least in the midwest, the market doesn't sway to far to the left or right like you find in other highly volatile markets like California and Florida, just to name a few. The peaks and valleys in the midwest are relatively moderate. But the peak experienced in 2004-2006 were significant and so was the valley beginning in 2007. It was a sharp an unpleasant change. But, that's the markets natural flow-high peaks followed by deep valleys, sometimes abruptly sometimes slowly but it always happens one way or the other. So now a few of us are feeling a sway in the real estate markets momentum and that's a good sign for us all. Believe me, and the professional economists will agree, a balanced market is what we all hope for. This will bring some sunshine to this economic slump. So what happens when the market is balanced-prices are moderate, more positive, and good things begin to happen all around. There's less speculation and more stability, and that makes for less foreclosures and increased help needed advertising. See, everything takes on a new look, a new feel, a more positive outcome takes place. Now, I'm no Pollyanna, and this takes time for the momentum to get going, but the indicators are there. And while there will be some swings up and down as there usually is in a market adjustment, the slight nudge has occurred. By the way, history does repeat itself, at least in the real estate market. And in Green Bay, Wisconsin, the Mark Hilgenberg Group, at Coldwell Banker, has witnessed this same thing in the early 1980's. I guess that's the beginning to a good silver anniversary. (25 yrs) With summer right around the corner the timing couldn't be better. While winter is in the distant there's plenty of time to get the momentum moving. Just keep moving forward.
