Don’t believe everything you hear ~ The real estate market is as hot as the temps.

I received a call today from one someone thinking about selling his home.  He was concerned because all he’s heard is the media hype about how the market has declined 30% since the buyer credit went away.  All I can say is Hogwash.

We all know the media is infamous for spewing negativity.  I don’t even watch the news anymore since it’s such a downer.

Take the real estate market.

Every home I have listed and have under contract sold in less than 32 days with 42% of my listings selling within the first week.  The listing I took last week received 4 competing offers, and the last 3 listings that sold in the last 2 weeks were sold with the buyer removing the appraisal contingency.  This does not look like a declining market to me.  All of these listings were traditional resales and further proof that the buying public loves a “regular” sale.

Why isn’t the media sharing this good news?  Because good news is apparently boring.
