This seems like terrific news for Real Estate in general.  I know it may be frustrating if you are a buyer...But the time has come to stop waiting for the bottom... It has come and gone in the markets listed above.  I understand that the Chicago area has reached bottom as well.

Now is the time folks...I can hear it now..."If I had only bought that house when things were cheap."  I don't think we will ever see prices this affordable at the same time interest rates are at record lows.

The Mountain Home, Arkansas market has stabilized.  We rely on retirees moving into this area as a driving force.  I believe that as we see these prices start to rise we will be in for a robust recovery here in the Mountain Home area.
