Let's look at what we know about the market:
The economy is in the biggest trouble it has encountered in 80 years.
It is commonly know that we are in a buyer's market.
The present inventory of homes for sale is excessively large
Interest rates are lower than they have been in most people's lifetime
The number of short sales and foreclosures is staggering
Home values have dropped drastically
The vast majority of buyers are looking for DEALS
The reality is the market is much better than most people will give it credit. Homes are selling but the activity is in the lower priced market, where the consumer feels comfortable.
