We are always looking for signs, right? Well it is no different in real estate. One resource for reporting trends and other news on the housing market is Altos Research, and they are sharing some of their "signs" that the real estate market is recovering.

 Click this link to see their full article and then scroll my blog to see how well their signs match with what is being reported by myself from our local Triangle MLS!

The Chapel Hill and Durham Real Estate markets have held their own over past years with rather flat appreciation, reasonable list to sale ratios, but did have a slight over supply in some price ranges of homes for sale. In the last year (2012 ), we saw a reduction in days on the market, increase in sale price and decrease in the number of homes for sale on the market - all signals from Altos that our area is trending accurately with the overall real estate market.

I think part of the popularity of our home sales has a lot to do with so many of the wonderful lifestyle choices we offer to families of all sizes in the Chapel Hill, Durham, and Raleigh- Cary communities. Read all about them on my website when you click here.

And if you're still curious, take a peak at some of the homes we are currently seeking families for on our featured homes page.
