Investment Home Sales Up 2011

Now is a good time to look at real estate as a smart investment! According to the National Association of Realtors, Investment and Vacation Home Sales jumped in 2011. We are seeing that this is also true here in our local market. Everything points to the market getting better, I think the only question is how far out is that. If you can pick up an investment property at these great prices and are able to wait until the market has recovered, you will be glad you did. A few years back when we were in a peak market, I can’t tell you how many people I ran into that would say “if I only knew then what I know now…”.

I think the people that are not taking advantage of this market and picking up investment properties will be doing the same thing only a few years from now.
