According to RISMedia, "Nationwide home prices were up 12.9 percent on a year-over-year basis." What does this mean for today's market? Many great things. It means that the market as of late is healthy. RISMedia does report that since November prices have actually declined 0.1 percent but have been at a steady plateau since February. 

We have seen this to be true at Rob Brooks Realty. The market is very active right now. Sellers are happy with the value of their homes and buyers are happy with the consistency in pricing. While all of this looks very hopeful, it is certain that the market has not yet reached its peak that occurred in 2005. We are staying hopeful as we look to the next few months knowing that we have no control over the market, but we know the One that does.
