Realty Companies See an Increase of Home BuyersFeeding Hills, Mass. (WGGB) – Last week we told you rental apartments in the area are filling up faster than usual because people aren’t buying homes.
But new numbers say homes sales are actually up across the country.
One realtor in our area says sales are up by about 10%.
He says that’s because it’s an excellent time to buy.
Ted Cassell with Park Square Realty in Feeding Hills told us, “You really can’t get a better opportunity than right now, because you’ve got low rates combined with lower pricing and there’s still a good selection out there. So if somebody’s renting, they can definitely get into a home at an affordable rate right now and lock in those lower interest rates, which is phenomenal.”
Cassell also says that if you have tried to sell your home in the past year or two without success, this is a good time to try again.
