2012 Real Estate Trends

2012 Real Estate Trends

As we enter 2012 the local real estate market has still not shown any real positive signs of the start of a recovery.  Real estate prices remain low as the result of continued foreclosures and short sales.  Mortgage rates remain at all time lows yet it remains very difficult for individuals and families to qualify for these low rates as a result of negative credit ratings and the requirement of substantial cash down payments.
Cash buyers stand to make a killing in this real estate market as banks and mortgage companies continue to unload foreclosures and approve substantial discounts for short sales.
