buyers market: February 2009. A home is still your Pleasure Prescription for Security. - 02/05/09 05:23 AM
One thing that is true in today's buyers market , and that is just what we have today A Buyers Market. However it is a fact that  Sellers are still selling homes.
Buyers are plentiful, however they are only bidding on the best of the best values in housing. 
We as Realtors, are still facing an almost 8 months supply of inventory. That fact makes this a Real Buyers Market. This , combined with falling and low interest rates, does take out any  urgency for buyers.

buyers market: December Rap, You've lost that loving feeling. - 12/26/08 12:23 PM

buyers market: How do you really know a buyers Opportunity Market is done? - 06/14/08 05:27 AM
 
Oh, sure the Inventory build up is lower , but truly that is not the tell tale sign.
That is how the bookkeepers measure and report. But today opportunity for buyers has changed for sure. The hint that rates are going to have to go up is one to fact to look at in my opinion. Combine that with if your not Rockefeller, or Trump, getting a mortgage now is harder than the last 8 years have been. And the inventory, take a good look at it, what is left? Lots of foreclosed homes, neglected properties, Lots of opportunities there, for investors, … (1 comments)
