Although you wouldn't be able to tell by the local or national media, the market is gaining strength. Take some time and look at Trulia. You will notice pending sales are up for our market. What this means as that buyers are starting to come out in droves and the lagging market has pinned up demand. Although we are not seeing increases in sales prices yet, we will. Once there is more demand from buyers than the current inventory allows prices will adjust. Let me ask you this if you don't believe me. Have you seen any new construction lately? Of course, you have - maybe not to the lengths of 06, 07, and 08 but you are still seeing homes built. What has happened is there has been a house cleaning of sorts in real estate. The old "only the strong survive". This is a better real estate market for both sellers and buyers. Why? Because you get the best people with the availability to serve you properly. Think about it, why would you trust your largest asset purchase or sale to anyone, but a professional?
