TGIF Scoop

 presented by Kay Baker & Associates

 Hello and welcome to TGIF Scoop! 

Good news this week for the real estate market as the foreclosure rate has dropped now 4 months in a row, since the high in July. In addition, default notices were down 8 percent. California, Florida, Illinois and Michigan account for 50% of all foreclosures. What does all this mean for our local real estate market? It is a good sign that our inventory of foreclosures will also start to decrease and we will see good signs of recovery after the first of the year.

 Remember, when it comes to real estate, we are the local market experts. We examine local market data and trends daily in assisting our buyers and sellers. Use our knowledge to your advantage! Remember, TGIF……….
