Weekly Market Activity Report

For Week Ending April 28, 2012

Buyers don't live in a spreadsheet. When they find a home to love and cherish, they don't intellectualize it too much. There are generally fewer homes on the market, they're selling more quickly and prices in most areas are no longer in a

downtrend. Dwindling inventories means there's less competition and more

pricing power for sellers, who are finally starting to be rewarded by strong buyer

activity. Interest rates at 50-year lows doesn't hurt either. Love is in the air and all

around the housing market.
