Today's Austin American Statesman reports that "Austin-area existing home sales were up 14 percent last month compared to a year earlier" (see Home Sales Improving). Over the last two months, our brokerage has seen the increase, and we've noticed fewer homes than normal on the market. The improvement in the economy and the popular Spring buying season lead us to believe sales will continue to increase. These factors also mean that great deals are disappearing quickly, so buyers need to know the market and act fast when a potential home becomes available. Having a Reilly Realtor on your side in a tightening market could mean finding THE house before others do. And if you are considering selling, let our marketing and sales skills go to work for you.
