The market is seeing a welcome increase in sales and settlements however despite record low interest rates and improvements in the stock market it isn't as swift as we would like to see. The number of new listings has remained stable we are seeing a slight increase in the number of homes going under contract and settling. I'm surprised I'm not seeing more individuals making the decision to buy with so many great deals available. The school year has come to a close so hopefully, people will be on the move before the end of summer. Now with the economic stimulus changes (up to $8000 in tax credits) and low interest rates it will be interesting to see how this all changes. Overall, there has never been a better time to buy, than right now.
These figures are taken directly from our MRIS system and are believed to be accurate.
