Home buyers and sellers are just as confused. Determining when it’s a good time to list your home or look for a new home or both can by mystifying these days, and I’m afraid that until we return to a more "normal" climate in which trends make sense we’re in for challenging times.
I’ll go out on a limb and declare that I am cautiously optimistic about the second half of 2014. National economic trend lines are good, lenders are eager to lend, Realtors® want to move homes and more Americans are moving toward the economic stability required to consider purchasing a home. I believe in our collective power to move the needle. Let’s see if we can make it happen.
