It's all about supply and demand. Right now there is a large inventory of homes on the market due to foreclosures and short sales mixed in with regular homes on the market. Should the number of foreclosed and short sale homes increase, then the supply will out number the demand quite a bit. It all depends on what is going to happen in the next few months. The number of homes selling may go up but the prices will probably not go up until the market is rid of the surplus of homes. That could be awhile before that happens.
