Summer 2011 Real Estate Market Update

Summer 2011 Real Estate Market Update

This real estate market update is presented by Ron Shuffield, President of EWM Realtors.  Today’s great values, which are truly half those 5 or 6 years ago,  are one reason why sales have taken off so much in 2011.  However, since January 2011 we have begun to see an increase in our prices, month after month.

Where Did The Buyer Find The House?

Where Did The Buyer Find The House?

In a report, Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers, by the National Association of Realtors (NAR) the NAR reported:

The majority of Buyers found the home of their dreams online, while less than 2% found it through newspaper ads.

Profile of Home Buyers and SellersWonder why the real estate advertising in the newspaper has decreased so much?  This is the reason why.  Newspapers don’t sell houses.  The majority of property buyers, 83% according to the NAR, purchased their homes through a real estate professional, and 88% of sellers used a real estate agent in their sales transaction.
