Will Housing Market Spring Forward?
Okay, the Super Bowl is well past and daylight savings time is less than two weeks away. Both are harbingers of spring -- and the fabled "spring selling season" for real estate. Will we have one this year? Is anyone seeing signs of more buyer activity yet? Are sellers (especially the not-desperate ones) thinking about giving it a try?
We'll get another blood-pressure reading on the state of the national market this morning, when the National Association of Realtors releases its sales -- and price -- figures for January. And a week stuffed full of housing data will conclude on Thursday with stats on new-home sales.
These numbers all lag what's happening in the market today. That's simply the nature of statistics; they're always a rear-view mirror thing. What are you seeing out the windshield? Any signs of spring out there?
