Home buyers are coming back a seasonal uptick in listings were enough to fuel an increase in contract signings. The stock market’s rise and steady hiring in most markets is spurring significant interest in buying and selling as well as the expectation from some households that delaying their home search may mean paying higher interest rates later this year. The warmest February in decades also played a role in kick starting prospective buyers house hunt and sellers to ready themselves to either trade up or trade down or just buy that second home.
