Things are a little confusing right now… the FED has raised interest rates with an intent to slow down the market, however all that this has done is push more people into hurrying up and buying (which is a smart move) which in turn has caused for our inventory levels to stay low. As you all know because I say it almost every week… Low Inventory + High Demand = Increase in Prices. This factor combined with tax returns and the spring selling season ahead of us, is a recipe for a strong growing market.
Here are some numbers to back that up: Closed Sales decreased 0.7% for Detached homes however Pending Sales increased 14.2% and the Inventory level decreased 24.3%. The Median Sales Price was up 5.6% to $559,500 for Detached homes and 7.8% to $378,750 for Attached homes. Days on Market decreased 2.3% for Detached homes and 22.0% for Attached homes. All these stats are pointing to a market not ready to slow down.

"Joseph had sold my husbands condo a few years ago, so when it was time to buy our first home we knew we wanted Joseph as our Realtor. At first we just wanted to see what was out there and Joseph right away started sending us listings. After the first 2 weeks of looking Joseph had a good understanding of what we wanted. He made us feel totally comfortable and when we sent a few listings we wanted to see he quickly made appointments to get us in. By the third week Joseph found our home! We put in an offer and 30 days later we got the keys. I highly recommend Joseph if you are looking for someone who will get the job done right!"
