Have you noticed that the conversations about real estate have changed…for the better? Until recently, talk often focused on how bad the market was. And it’s easy to see why – for the past five years, the news was dominated by price declines and slow sales. But no longer. The times have definitely changed! Now it seems nearly every day I hear from someone I know that they’ve just bought a home at a great price and unbelievably low interest rate. And considering how many homes have sold so far this year, the odds are that you also know at least one person who is thrilled with a recent home purchase.
