Midcoast Maine Real Estate Market News

The Trend's Your Friend

What may have been construed as “blips” on the economy’s radar screen last fall can now be considered the trend.  According to the monthly housing reports from the Maine Association of Realtors, images/mainehousingreport-december2011.pdf, we have seen six consecutive months of year-over-year improvements of existing home sales in Maine. In the broader market, the National Association of Realtors reports the third consecutive month of increasing existing home sales and a drop of almost 10% in inventory.

Supply and demand look to be coming back toward normalcy.  The good news in the economy is also evidenced in new three year lows in both December’s and January’s numbers for unemployment and consumer sentiment also has had six months in a row of increases.  The best news is that housing prices are still low and at least here in midcoast Maine, there are some great quality homes on the market.  As they say on Wall Street, “The trend’s your friend.”
