Hi John - Great market report for Western Trails Estates - it looks like a great price point for buyers willing to try a short sale, and your knowledge of the area and real estate expertise would be what they need to guide them to a successful purchase.

John -- if a buyer is patient, there may be a short sale purchase in their future at Western Trails Estates....hit while the inventory exists, we don't know what the future may bring.

Hmmm....interesting stats report.   Actually, in spite of a very different area, those times/prices are mirrored in my region.

Home buyers should love the very affordable prices.  And, the mortgage interest rates are still at record low levels.  This spring is a wonderful time for a home purchase.

Some age 62+ seniors are using reverse mortgages to purchase a more suitable primary residence and will have no mortgage payments for life.
