A better Atmosphere!

Attached are the Sales and Listings Stats up to the end of January 2013. The New Year has started on better terms than how it finished. With unit sales in January 2013 up from December 2012 and the number of new listings coming on market slowing, the result was the Month’s Supply declining in all areas. Energy in the real estate market is returning and with it sales should continue to increase. While not at levels previously seen in the frenetic markets but creating more of a balance, one that will still favour buyers to a degree. With that pricing continues to be a determining factor on listings selling. Properties listed at today’s prices will speak to buyers more than what continues on market at yesterday’s prices. With interest rates continuing at low levels and better sentiment in the economy, a better positive feeling in the market will help to create a better atmosphere.
