RE/MAX National Housing Report July 2012
The June RE/MAX National Housing report shows that the housing recovery is for real. On a year-to-year basis, the home sales have now risen for twelve months straight and prices have inched higher for the past five months.

Increased consumer confidence, historically low mortgage rates and attractive pricing are some of the factors that are drawing buyers and sellers back into the real estate market. On our team, we have taken more traditional listings so far this year than we have in the last two years combined. Available homes for sale dropped 5.0% from May and 27.4% from June 2011. This declining inventory has created a seller's market in many areas with multiple offers.

"Although the housing market has a long way to go to make a full recovery, all signs now show that it's on the right path and has improved every month so far this year," said Margaret Kelly, COE of RE/MAX LLc. "This selling season is the best in years, and those who thougth that the positive trends would quickly correct have been proven wrong, because many consumers again feel comfortable buying or selling a home."
