Great Property Deals Straight Ahead !

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage


 Quite a number of prognosticators are indicating that existing home sales are to stay very  steady, with the

possibility of increasing later this hear and improving and showing positive growth in 2009.  Well, this is the

posture the National Association of Realtors has taken.  Evidence the fact that there are more people with

the financial capacity to purchase homes than even at the 2005 clip.  Still, many are waiting for market

stabilization as well as easy the concerns over the coming election in the fall.


This is the time to purchase a home.  Some people are still trying to "time" the market,  but since there are

such outstanding deals available, it is more important to find a purchase while the selection and price are both

favorable.  While we are on the subject of locating a property,  the internet seems to be the first choice for

potential homebuyers to begin their search.  This replaces the newspaper and trips to the real estate office as

the number one approach.  Searching for homes online has increased 36% from 2006 to 2007!    The good news

about that is we have come up with a website that has a great property search feature that readily provides a

wealth of local information along with great pictures.  So be sure to visit us at: .

If we can be of any help in your quest for a home or rental property ,  please feel free to contact us.
