Have you looked into your "crystal ball" lately? What is happening in the real estate market?

We have the unique opportunity to hear from investors all over the country. Our franchisees buy more houses than any other group nationwide. But there is more than that – in addition to buying houses, they also sell houses. They sell more houses to first time homebuyers and investors than any other group in the country.

The result, by watching the statistics, talking to this diverse group of experts in buying houses, we can get a pretty good picture of what is happening in the real estate market nationwide.

  • One of the key indicators is the levels of inventory of homes. Statistics show that nationwide the days on market is down considerably since the highest levels. As reported in Personal Real Estate Investor Magazine, levels for January have dropped in each market from last year.
  • Another good indicator is how many different investors are buying houses. Our franchisees buy more houses than they can personally rehab, so they also sell to other investors. Franchisees report an increase interest from investors. They are selling houses to more "new" investors than ever before.
  • A look at several markets around the country confirm this data. Instead of a few investors buying most of the houses, there are more first time investors buying investment properties.

Over the next month, with the First Time Homebuyers tax credit expiring, there will be a bump in the number of sales. But, the real indicator of a thaw in the real estate market is this activity by investors.
