Better Days to Come?

Basking in the Sun

I know, what do Lions have to do with real estate? Nothing. But We took the twins to the zoo on Monday when it was GORGEOUS and got this picture. It sort of reminds me of how buyers are feeling about the real estate market right now. It’s sunny out there! The next thing this lion is going to do is bounce up and start chasing the next hot listings.

I’m not kidding. It seems like anyone and everyone who is searching for a home right now is having to battle others for the hot properties. Overheard in my office “Is it like 2006 all over?”  Ok, NO it is not at all like the real estate boom of that time but the inventory is low (for good homes) and there are a lot of shoppers out there. So if you are buying, be prepared that someone else is interested in the property you like.
