I am pleased to announce that I have been selected to serve on the Coldwell Banker Sales Associates Advisory Council. Only 20 agents were selected from across the United States and Canada and I am honored to be one of them. I will be attending the first meeting next week at the Coldwell Banker headquarters in New Jersey. This is very exciting and I am looking forward to meeting the other agents and the staff at Coldwell Banker.
Take a look at this interesting chart that clearly shows why now is a smart time to buy. Even though the tax credits have expired, the low interest rates combined with recent drop in house prices makes it truly the perfect time to buy a home. http://www.coldwellbanker.com/imgs/cbnetftp/smarttime.html
The August real estate figures for the Pioneer Valley are out and the news is not what we would like to hear. The market has been slow the past several weeks and prices have come down. However, I predict the numbers will improve during the fall and winter buying season.
In Franklin County, sales were down 21.3 percent from 61 to 48. the median price was down 6.9 percent from $203,000 to $189,000. For more information click on the link below.
This is good news for Massachusetts!
