Real Estate Agent with The Fischetti Group/Keller Williams

It looks like the markets are smiling:


Looks like the housing sales numbers are going:


 Which is good news, but the increase in sales is most likely a result of the further collaspe of home values.


So as more sellers reduce their prices, buyers are taking advantage of the discounts in price and mortgage rates.


Overall, it is still an improvement:



So whatever your real estate needs


CALL Jim Fischetti



Thank you!

Great news and Wall Street is smiling today too. Hopefully this is a step in a more positive direction.

Jim, you are right. I'm starting to see more purchase business, but it is coming from distressed sellers or banks. I'm getting more people calling to do an application. Better times ahead this summer.

The market here in AZ is already experiencing the over list price on the hot properties and multiple contracts in just a couple days.
