Housing Market Optimism  

Our housing market is bouncing back!  FNMA (Fannie Mae) survey shows there is growing optimism. Number of closings are up and inventory is down.  We have had a number of multiple offers on properties for sale - we have represented both buyers and sellers this year in such situations. This is the formula for a rising market. 


Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill has ranked #8 in  Real Age's top 10 list of the "youngest" cities in America, metropolitan areas with such healthy lifestyles that on average their residents are physically at least two years younger than their chronological age, and many are years younger than that. RealAge analyzed data from the largest 50 metropolitan areas to compile the rankings.
