2012: inventory

What we need for 2012:

Inventory- many of you who know me can attest, I am a research junkie when it comes to
real estate. Although many realtors do not usually hold open
houses in December, I do. Why would I do this? Well, I wanted to get an idea of who would be the buyers in 2012.

This is what I learned: I met people who took a while to sell their homes and
were a bit skittish to buy right away. People who lived in rental homes, who felt the holidays were not the same with many sentimental holiday belongings in stuck in storage.

Another group of buyers I met fit into the category of ex-pats being transferred to Houston. They have kids and they need good schools. Yippee for Memorial and their amazing schools. These wonderful buyers have greatly depleted Memorial's inventory.

I've also met a large group of buyers who are coming from private schools and moving to Memorial. Their kids have gone to private school since kindergarten, and they want a change. Memorial High School graduates have great success getting into some of the nation's top colleges and universities.

If you are thinking of selling your home, don’t let the doom and gloom on the
evening news discourage you. Many of us have had record-breaking years.

Homes are selling !!!!
