yes, there definitely been an increase in activity and sales in my area, too.

a number of newly listed homes, in the past week, have had multiple offers......we shall see if this is a temporary bump or a longer lasting upswing........time will tell

We have seen an increase, too. Of course, we are a resort area and it's Spring. So folks are waking up to the fact the Beach is a great investment.

Hey Ruby-
We have definatley seen an increase in the past few weeks. But then again we also never saw the traditional drop off in Dec-Jan! It's wonderful to see the buyers that were hesitant are now moving forward with owning their own homes!

Its been busy, I have not stopped,there was no 'traditional' slowing in November and December. That earlier activity compounded with the spring market has made it a busier market.Hurray.I think certain areas, like Cary , Morrisville and ITB have reached a more balanced market in residential homes. Condos and townhouses have some catching up to do.

And California really seemed to avoid too much disaster, it's very healthy in most areas!

The N&O published a story about this on Thursday. February sales were up 35% from this time last year. This is definitely welcoming news!

It's not just you....The economy is on an upswing, and this is the beginning of the peak real estate season. If you are planning on putting your home on the market or purchasing now is the time. Also the interest rates still being low people are taking advantage of it...
