Dayton’s Housing Market is Recovering, Slow Steady

I firmly believe that we are starting the road to recovery.  My reasoning…I am looking at the number of homes that come on the market and are swiftly swept away.  I am seeing more than just real estate investors swooping in and taking over.  I am seeing first time homebuyers looking for something better for themselves and not paying their landlord’s mortgage.  I know it’s a slow progress but it IS a progress that is ever moving upward.

I like to see homes sell.  And not because I am a Realtor but because I know that if the housing market is going well other things will follow.  I think the gentle upward swing we are seeing in Dayton and her surrounding areas is a sign that we are slowly coming back from the brink.

And even though I am a Realtor and know that the housing boom that we were experiencing just only 7-8 years ago was great for my fellow agents, I know we should not go back there again.  It may have helped the lender make boat loads of money, and some of us Realtors too, but it has created the mess that we are trying to recover from. 

Slow and steady is good.  We have learned that just because we can doesn’t mean we have to do quite so much.  It was a hard lesson but we've learned.

So, hopefully, with the interest rates still at an all time low, the housing inventory not quite so flooded, maybe we can make it.  And do better this time around.  Good luck in all your housing needs. And, should you need a realtor whose firm wish is to see you in your ideal home within your ideal budget, think of me and call.
