Hello – it’s been a long time between posts – so thank you for stopping by today. This morning on my weekly update for WPTF and WQDR, I gave my “prediction” for the second half of 2008 for real estate sales in Raleigh and Cary real estate.
I see some very encouraging signs. First the Fed is sending out rumors there will be NO further interest rates cuts. If this is true – more homes will sell in our local market. For years I’ve noticed that when interest rates go down – home buyers “wait” for the bottom. However, when interest rates go up – they are “ready” to buy. I believe we are at the very bottom of this market & cycle and that the “back nine” or the second half of 2008 will be our stronger game.
There are many more encouraging signs emerging that will affect our local Triangle market. I’ve got time to tell you about one more today. The VeroFORECAST is a highly respected and accurate model for predicting the ebb and flow of residential real estate markets throughout the US. Vero has been releasing results in both up and down markets for over five years. Vero projects that the Raleigh and Cary, North Carolina market will rank as the #2 area for home appreciation in the US. In this ranking, we are second only to Wichita, Kansas (are you sure?). See the attached ranking for all markets.
