I think 2013 will go down as the start of the real estate recovery. The trend is for things to get better. I am very busy showing property now. We are even starting to see a little new construction. I expect new construction cost to be less than they were before the bust due to investors buying foreclosed lots for next to nothing. Before the land cost was much higher.
I think if you have an existing home to sell you may want to get it on the market before you have to start competing with a bunch of new lower priced homes.
