RE/MAX National Housing Report

While sales in November of 2011 followed the usual seasonal trend, December sales surprisely were on the rise by 5.7%. This is the 6th consecutive month that home sales were higher than the same month in the previous year.  

“We’re pleasantly surprised to see the year end with such strong sales, and hope this trend will continue into the traditional spring selling season,” said Margaret Kelly, CEO of RE/MAX, LLC. "This December jump may be due to increased investor involvement and transactions that were scheduled to occur before the end of the year, but with prices at or very near the bottom and historically low interest rates, consumers are finding real value in this market."
