Housing Picture Continues to Brighten

Mortgage and Lending with Dean Tucker Benchmark Mortgage NMLS# 103829

Existing Home Sales Febrary 2011 

Existing Home Sales continued their upward climb in January.  This is the fourth month in a row where we have seen month-over-month gains in the number of units sold.  The National Association of Realtors reported that sales rose 2.7% from December.  Also, the inventory levels decreased again:

The number one reason that the housing market tanked was due to over supply.  So, with home sales increasing and inventory levels decreasing, this is certainly a trend with some momentum.  All cash sales and distressed sales did increase last period.  But any way that the excess inventory is gobbled up is good.  It certainly shows that the demand is there and that investors are snapping up properties before prices rise.  Maybe you should too?
