Lisa and Jim's Northern Nevada Real Estate Blog: The buyers are coming! The buyers are coming!

The buyers are coming! The buyers are coming!

Yeah!  As goes California ... so goes Nevada!  Glad to hear the news!

Read this!

To say it's exhilarating is an understatement. 

The local news confirms it....although the median prices are lower than they were a year ago, the number of sales increased.

Buyers who were apprehensive months ago, seem to be buoyed by the good news that list prices are lower, the interest rates are still low, there are quite a few properties to choose from, there's room for negotiation, and there are more incentives (tax credits) available for home buyers.

And according to DQNews reports:

California January 2009 Sales Report

An estimated 29,458 new and resale houses and condos were sold in California last month. That was down 22.1 percent from 37,836 in December and up 53.9 percent from 19,145 in January 2008. Sales have increased on a year-over-year basis for the last seven months.

Celebrate to inspire

In our office, we make it a practice to celebrate each escrow that is opened by making a general announcement to all the agents and the staff. Imagine our delight when nearly every day this week, someone opened an escrow. Every single sale is cause for celebration.

We are all pumped!

Buyers, we love buyers....we love lots and lots of buyers

Today, it was back-to-back appointments for me, starting with a young couple who want to buy an investment property for owner-occupancy, and ending with a more mature couple who want to downsize and find a one-level ranch home.
