Area Homes are Selling...Market Recap W/E 4/7/09

Contrary to national headlines, homes are selling in our local communities! We are seeing new listings coming to market, more buyers stepping up for 'under contracts' and activity in the sold category. The combination of correctly priced homes for sale and current mortgage interest rates now below five percent is really exciting. Of the 106 properties currently under contract in our local communities 35 went under contract in 30 days or less! A property properly priced and properly promoted will generate action.
