The Phone is Ringing - the Market is Heating Up

The Phone is Ringing - the Market is Heating Up

What a day!  Showings in the morning, showings in the afternoon, and more showings scheduled for tomorrow.

The spring market appears to be heating up early.  The buyers are out, and inventory is starting to move.  I'm getting a lot of inquiries about properties at the lower end of the market (the deals); however, there is also activity at the mid-range level too.

This is a good sign.  Even with the snow that we have had the past two weeks, it appears that buyers are tired of waiting to make a purchase.  Interest rates are still wonderfully low but on the rise, and smart home buyers are looking into financing options.

Let's hope this is an indicator that 2011 will bring a strong and steady real estate market.

I'm so glad to hear the word spring! It's freezing up here in PA :( but my mortgage applications are up so I can see that spring is around the corner.

Kathryn, spring is not yet here, but the market is showing signs of being busy for at least the next month or two.

December of 2010 was like a July month it was so busy.  January is off to a great start.  Hopefully the weather will not cool it off.
