If you are a Seller, it's TOUGH. Miss Plyler is misinformed saying it's wonderfull. As a senior Broker/Owner/Instructor with over a thousand transactions experience, I can tell you, we are not as bad as some places, but finding Buyers right now is tougher now than at any time in the past 15 years. Our real estate recession will not last as long as some places, but it's real and it hurts sellers, real estate sales people and related business. Values are good but people have not made the increase in the past year we have before.
I would encourage BUY NOW! Even if you sell for a little less on your old home, you'll get a bargain on the new house. Our housing market has doubled in value roughly every 8 years, in good times and bad. It's always evened out. This market adjustment will be short and will not change the long term number
If you'd like to speak with an EXPERT, just give me a call and I'd love to help. No fluff, but solid facts.

Will you be moving to the Valdosta area?? If so, this is such an exciting time for our town. You have picked a great place.
The housing market in our area is actually pretty good. All of the horror shown on the news does not reflect the market in Valdosta and Lakeland. We have not seen the slow down that other places have. We have lots of homes available right now and we have seen a pick up in the market in the last two weeks! I'm sure we can find the perfect home for you!
Let me encourage you to visit our website at http://www.valdostahomefinder.com. There you can search all the local listings by any company in our area. Also, I will be able to show you and help to represent you with the purchase of any home listed by any agency in the area, so don't feel like you have to go to every one. We are a one stop shop!
I am also a member of a 3 man team, so you will be getting 3 for the price of 1!!!
Please let me know if there is anything else that I can help you with. Feel free to email me at anytime!
Are you working with a REALTOR? If not, I would be happy to refer you to a great one in that particular area, just contact me when you are ready.
Please do not consider purchasing a home unrepresented.
