Summer Is Here...It is Time to Move!

Many home buyers have been watching and waiting in the Real Estate Market. As the Media coninues to build hype about how BAD the market conditions are...the buyers are realizing this is a GREAT time to buy! The National Association of Realtors reported that the market has picked up about 3% in existing home sales during the month of February. In fact, The Korn Team closed 17 properties in March.

The interest rates continue to hover around the 6% rate, and with some of the great values out there in the market place it is hard to not want to make a move. The Department of Housing and Urban Development is making it easier to with the recent increase in FHA loan limits that are tied directly to the median home prices is giving buyers greater access to affordable funds.

To take advantage of this summer market, Sellers are going to need to put some extra effort into getting their homes ready for sale. It is still a competitive market and Buyer expectation are still pretty high. It is basically a "Beauty Contest AND a Price War". So, don't even slack off for one day.
