The Tides are turning

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Premier Associates

The South Florida Real Estate market has been going down since the beginning of the year. One obvious reason is due to the torrid pace the market was going through during 2004-2005. Sellers were are trying to get more than the appraisal amount cause buyers were in frenzy and abided with the sellers wishes. Starting at the end of 2005 article after article was posted in every newspaper publication about how the housing bubble was about to burst. Buyers started getting afraid to buy figuring that market would continue to fall.


But now I suddenly see a change coming. I have noticed articles now are becoming more encouraging towards our market. For example;

I see the tides are turning and I see the market turning around sooner than we think. Let’s hope for all of this is true, I am looking forward to a bright future for our profession.

I've seen homes around here start to sell faster again. Inventory is starting to decrease with irrational sellers pulling their homes off the market...

I have just begun to see and hear some positive news being portrayed in the media up here in New Hamsphire as well.  Just this morning on Boston news, there was a story that their home prices have hit bottom and the worst should be about behind them.  I'm in what's considered the metro Boston region, even though I'm in New Hampshire, about an hour north of Boston.  But, good news is good news and we'll take it wherever we can get it.
