I just read some good news on one of the Real Estate Blogs I like to read (The KCM Blog). After analyzing NAR’s (National Association of Realtors) November Existing Home Sales Report, the KCM Crew drew this conclusion (which is also the title of their blog today): “People are buying homes AND GETTING MORTGAGES.” They support that statement with numbers from the report saying: “12,109 homes (are) selling in the United States EACH and EVERY DAY! That means approximately 12,000 houses sold yesterday, approximately 12,000 will sell today and approximately 12,000 will sell tomorrow.” They go on to conclude that according to the percentages, 8,000 of the daily home sales are accompanied by a mortgage.
For us in the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex, NAR’s November Existing Home Sales Report reflected a pretty stable price of homes in November 2011 compared to November 2010 (+.3% rise). But the really great news is that 14.4% more homes sold in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area in November 2011 than November 2010. Those numbers are definitely moving in the right direction.

"Anne helped our family buy a house in University Park. We were very fortunate to have a Realtor® who not only knew the market well and found us a great house in our price range with required bedrooms, but she was very efficient and smart during the negotiating phase of making an offer. She is very prompt to return phone calls and emails which is an absolute must when buying or selling. I have bought three houses in my life and I found Anne to be the best realtor we have used. Anne is very bright and she knows the ins and outs of making an offer, going through inspections, financing and closing."
