Depending on your price range, you may be right. With current market conditions, homes in the $2-300k range in Bedford are seeing a bit of a rise with seasonal adjustments. There are also fewer foreclosures on the market which also keeps from dragging traditional sales down and helps out. Higher priced homes may be leveling out; though saying that they are rising would be a bit of a stretch. Lastly, remember not to judge prices based on the list price as this is not typical of what the homes will or do sell for.

You're not dreaming, it does seem that the prices are higher than they were at the beginning of the summer and definitely than they were 6 months ago! I have noticed this in searching for clients and customers.
My guess is that the cash sale and extreme fixer uppers are now purchased. This cleans the market quite a bit for move in ready, higher priced homes.
I think it is safe to say the worst is behind us with the economy, though I don't want to jinx anything!
