Donna - The market report is certainly important to both buyers and sellers.  Here is hoping the market will be much improved in the next few months.

Hi Donna!  Great market report, as always.  I have noticed that specific neighborhoods are suffering significantly with distressed sales on the rise.  I have been working with short sales and really do try to get the maximum in a short period of time so that the local markets aren't hurting as badly as some who sell them at rock bottom price just to dump them.  I don't think they realize that they're damaging the residual market when they price these things so incredibly low.  Hopefully the experienced short sale folks who have the knowledge to think from both sides will be the ones pricing these homes down the road!

Have a great weekend...

Joan, hummmmm I see the word decrease in there, I don't like decrease unless it is in the number of days on the market.  Got to turn those decreases into increases :) :)

Anthony - You're welcome.

Jennifer - I'm hoping to see an improvement in the near future too. 

Debe -  I agree.  Some of the distressed properties though are in need of total rehab or a lot of TLC.  The short sales have caused a slight decrease in the average sales price but not to the extent of what these more distressed bank owned properties do.  It's a vicious cycle and buyers and sellers alike need to be aware of what is affecting the sales price of homes in their neighborhoods.

Jeff - It's alwyays a pleasure put together the Morris Cove New Haven CT real estate market reports since I love the area and live there too!

Liz - The Certified Distressed Property Expert designation is not limited to just RE/MAX agents although RE/MAX highly endorses it.  There are scheduled courses taking place all over the country and it can be taken online too.

Bill - Which is just what they need to stay on top of what's taking place in the Morris Cove area.

George - I don't like to see the word decrease either. Hopefully we'll start to see the market make a turn for the better very soon.
