The major trends we are seeing right now is a steady increase in sales and median values off the lows of the first half of 2012.   We have seen a decrease in the number of foreclosures in the area.  The peak of foreclosure sales in the area is reflected in the early 2012 numbers.  Inventories are still high for the area, it continues to be a buyer’s market.  There are still a few deals to be had but with continued low interest rates savvy buyers are quick to pick up the aggressively priced properties.

We are beginning to see bare land sales in the area as well.  Again inventories of bare lot on the market is very high, but demand is starting to trickle back.

Are you trying to understand how the real estate market is doing in your area but don’t know where to begin?

If you are like most people then you are probably hearing mixed information reported from a variety of media outlets, real estate institutions and companies, and various other economic think tanks. This unfortunately creates confusion and causes most people interested in real estate (as a buyer, seller, or investor) to make inaccurate judgments and conclusions about the market.

Think about it, with all this mixed information on whether we are in a good, bad, or flat market, who’s information is the “correct” answer? Also, who is the information you are reading in reference to? A great market for a buyer may be a bad one for a seller while a bad market for a seller may be a great one for a investor/buyer.

The point is, depending on what kind of real estate consumer you are (buyer, seller, investor) then the information you take in needs to be interpreted in light of your objectives. At any given time the market is always “Good”, “Bad”, “Flat”, or “Great”…but that depends on what you are looking to specifically do with real estate.

We can provide you with the proper information to accurately answer “How’s the market?” for you, based entirely on what you are looking to do with real estate.
