wondering where your source of information is coming from Dan. Our sales in North Alabama were up for the month of July, over 20% as a matter of fact. Not sure what clue you think sellers should be getting but the real question is WHY would you not buy or sell? Interest rates are below 4% for many buyers which means BUY! If buyers buy, they must buy from a seller so it must be a good time to SELL! Great time to be on either side of the transaction!!... more
It is troublesome, but I think there will always be a need for a good realtor. Remember what goes down will come up. Patients, persistence and a good work ethic is needed to succeed in all business.... more
Of one thing we should have been certain.....after the US credit rating change, the market was certain to drop big time! And with a declining market, I follow your view of people having access to less money. But I don't quite follow "sellers dream asking prices?"
Is your thought that all homes are over priced? Are you hinting at agents and sellers not having an accurate appreciation of the current RE market? Are you thinking the RE market is going to encounter another dramatic slow down?... more
Checking with a local real estate agent is usually the easiest source for this type of information. They have access to the local MLS and can pull the information for you. I would recommend Danna Smith in the Auburn area. Her number is 334-821-5885.
