Greenville NC Real Estate Sales Statistics - Sept 2010

By

Despite economic uncertainty, 68 percent of those surveyed in the 2010 National Housing Pulse Survey, conducted by the Natinal Association of Realtors, still believe now is a good time to buy a home; while that number is down from last year (75 percent), it's up from 2008 (66 percent) and 2007 (59 percent). Lower home prices and record-low mortgage interest rates are attracting buyers to the housing market - more than one-fourth of renters said they are thinking more about buying a home than they were a year ago. Sixty-three percent of renter respondents said that owning a home is a priority in their future, and nearly 40 percent said it was one of their highest priorities.

Americans are seeing more stability in the real estate market. Nearly seven out of 10 believe that home values have stabilized in their area; the same number expects home sales to remain about the same through the end of the year. 

While nearly seven out of 10 say it's harder to sell a home in their area today than it was a year ago, it's less of a concern from last year when the number was 10 percentage points higher. This is most likely the result of lower home inventories.

Take a look at how the Greenville NC real estate market fared in September.
