Plenty of Positive Market News Today

By
Real Estate Agent with District One Properties DC-VA-MD

Hungry for a little good real estate news? Leon d'Ancona, president of IMS Inc., has something to cheer you up.

D'Ancona, who provides real estate information to the industry, has set up a Web site that lists 2,319 markets in the United States where homes are selling well.

For instance, Loganville, Ga., homes sold 38.5 percent faster in April than they did in March, and sales of homes in Avondale, Ariz., increased by 64 percent in April compared with March

"The problem with glass-is-half-empty stories is that they have an undue psychological impact on markets that is not borne out by all the facts," says d'Ancona. "We know, because it's our business to know, that there are hundreds of cities and thousands of neighborhoods in the United States right now where the market is very healthy, thank you."

Boris -

Real estate comprises a group of LOCAL MARKETS - not one, big, homogeneous NATIONAL one.  We're seeing this in many neighborhoods here in Chicago.

We just need to better get this word out to consumers, that all is not lost, everywhere!

Thanks for bringing us some GOOD NEWS!
