In Many Markets Home Sales Are Rising

Sales of existing homes in the United States reached their highest level since 2006 last year. Steady home value growth has allowed many housing markets to eclipse previous records set during the housing bubble.
-- Upper price range homes are still seeing a somewhat sluggish market.
-- Home prices are up 5.8 percent from last year.
-- When a home is overpriced most buyers resist making offers not wanting to  insult the sellers. Pricing while always key is even more so in today's market. 

Why We Are Interested in the Millennial Generation 
-- These 18-29 year olds are the next generation of buyers. 
-- Their spending is conservative and  they are saving money to pay off debt, for retirement and for buying a house. So they may be your future buyer. 
-- They are young professionals who prefer a turnkey home that needs little or no work. Modern homes that are cost- and energy-efficient.
