  • We have ONLY 4 months supply of ALL listings-this is indicative of a "hot" market!
  • Even the "Short-Sales" of shortened up their time. Lender's making deals?
  • REO's-blistering! 1.6 months supply-A raging Seller's Market!
  • In this time of "melt-down" Financial markets we are posting HUGE sales! Your buyer's are confident and see value in this market plus spectacular rates-SHARE WITH YOUR CLIENTS!
