Quotes

"We are seeing continued pressure on the lower end of the market where listings have not increased, and there is more activity at the luxury end of the price spectrum. The good news is that investors appear far less interested in the lower end of the market, opening up opportunities for potential owner-occupants. Investors and foreign buyers, however, are still very active in the market for townhouses and condos."
"Overall, this is a positive report and we should continue to see housing receiving support from steady job growth, and reportedly easier credit requirements from Fannie and Freddie, even as higher borrowing costs are on the horizon" she said
"I would say one year from now, two years from now, things will be much better because we have so many factors that will support home sales" Mr. Yun said. He pointed to strong job creation, persistently low interest rates and expanding inventory
