Seems as though short sales are getting easier to get approved.  The approval times for some are getting done very quickly.  If you have shied away from short sales in the past, I would suggest you reconsider.  Especially if you are not on a specific time frame to move.   If you are considering a short sale of your property and would like more information I would be happy to sit down with you and discuss.


No one can say for sure when we have hit bottom; that always happens after you get out of it.  But, from discussions with my peers (other agents, escrow, lenders, etc.) many of us feel we are in it and have been for a while.  I think we will continue here this year.  With the continuing drop of inventory it only makes sense that at some point we will start to see some sort of rally.  Whether it be more sellers jumping in because there isn’t as much for buyers to choose from and/or and more solid base of prices that will start to creep up as multiple offers continue and many homes selling for at or above market price.  Don’t forget the market continues to be very active and while prices don’t seem to be going up very much, there has not yet been a lack of  buyers looking. 


I hope you have a fantastic weekend!  If I can be of service, don’t hesitate to call.

It is not my intention to solicit the offerings of other real estate brokers.  I am happy to work with them and cooperate fully.
