Inman News ranked Raleigh-Cary housing first on the list of Real Estate Markets to watch in 2012. 

The News & Observer reported in March that home sales in February were the best they had been in 4 years! That's an increase of 35% from the same time last year.

Masha represents clients that are currently under contract on 2 properties selling at or above listing price. She is also under contract on 2 other homes where the list to sale ratio was 99%! Although, it's still a buyers market, the real estate market is more competitive than it has been in years. Right now interest rates are low. Whenever interest rates increase, the amount of money a buyer has to purchase a home decreases. Its a good time to speak with Masha if you are planning to buy real estate in Cary, Raleigh or the surrounding areas of Durham and Chapel Hill.

The Triangle area when compared with nationwide data of other metropolitan areas showed above average price appreciation, job market, home affordability, home sales, distressed sales and other factors. Raleigh-Cary was the only area in the top ten located in the southeast region of the country. The Triangle has consistently received good rankings. Forbes recently named Raleigh tops for Most Wired, Safest City and Best Place for Business and Careers. These rankings attract the interest of potential buyers from around the country.
