What's the Real Deal?
Homebuyers or sellers who peruse the news headlines can become quickly disheartened or elated depending on which publication, blog, or news station they are following. There is no doubt that conflicting information is being reported on the real estate industry on a daily basis.
The information reported is not necessarily false, but the reality is that real estate is a very local business. What is happening in regards to sales, pricing, or foreclosures nationally or even state-wide, may not be the reality in your local community.
Understanding how all of this information impacts you directly can also be difficult to navigate. For example the National Association of Realtors® (NAR) stated in a release posted last month that pending home sales in July expanded in most of the country and reached the second highest reading in over a decade. Two weeks earlier, NAR reported that existing home sales lost steam due to low levels of inventory.
