Yeah! Hooray! The real estate market is alive again!! The market continues to show signs of renewal as the number of listings is decreasing and the number of sales are increasing. Trust me; if this housing market continues at its current pace, we will be on track for a recovery in a lot of other sectors of this nation's economy.

My own business is on the increase and I am delighted as properties are selling. Yes, prices are still sliding a bit and yes, it will take some time to work through the current inventory levels but we are headed in the right direction! Over the last two weeks, I have seen several of my listings go under contract. Some have been on the market for over 8 months! And, we're beginning to see some activity in new home construction with our builder, Mittelstaedt Brothers Construction.

What a great time to buy! Prices are low, interest rates are low and selection is outstanding! It's a trifecta!! First time buyers and investors are jumping with joy. Families wanting more space or a different layout are moving up. By accepting the reality they are taking less than they'd like on their current home, they are able to more than offset their lower equity with the savings they achieve on their "move-up" house.

Call me if you want to get in on these tremendous opportunities. 612-801-2224. If now isn't the time for you but you know of someone looking to buy, I am ready to show them some fabulous deals in new and previously owned houses, townhouses and condos. I also have lots ready for your builder or mine!
