Conclusions

The Market Index continues to climb.  Unit sales are strong, so demand is slowly outpacing inventory.  Prices are continuing their decline.  Lack of attractive financing for loans over $729,750 is continuing to plague buyers.

For buyers - if you have been waiting on the sidelines, now might be the time to jump in the game. 

For sellers - properly preparing your home for sale is the key to getting the best price.  Ask for our Highest Property Value Audit to find out how to maximize your profit (or minimize your loss) when you sell.
