Whether you’re buying or selling, there are some trends you need to know about:
In most markets across the country, gains of around 5 percent are seen as stable, sustainable growth, a welcome change after years of roller coaster changes. Buyers want turnkey properties. Even with tight inventory, buyers are looking for properties that are move-in ready and won’t require much more than a coat of paint. In most places it’s much cheaper to buy than to rent. Soaring rents in recent years have made buying a home much more affordable for those who want to stay put than renting one.
