2009 is going to be a GREAT year!!!

Wow, 2009 seems to have start out to be Great.  Buyers are definately coming from all directions and actually putting in offers... My open houses are getting more activity then ever.  I think with interest rates at an all time low in years combined with home prices at an all time low we are going to see record home sales this year.  If we can get the downpayment assistance programs back that will put a lot more first time home buyers back in the game...



Woohoo... I love to hear such positive news!!  Best of luck for 2009!!

My phone is ringing off the hook too - the clients are very careful, but it is picking up!

Linda - We had a record number of bid requests 5 weeks ago - in the middle of December!  Not to be outdone, last week's number was even higher.  It's very unusual to have January's numbers beat the rest of the year, all I can say is everyone is thinking about buying right now.

Yup...I feel the same way I think we are all going to have to adjust, meaning, figure out a way to do business, I think the reos will dry up ...and then we have to figure out the next big thing. :)
