Four trends for spring home buying

By Kim Banks on April 4, 2013

According to a recent U.S. News article, this is the first spring when the housing market is clearly in recovery - and there are four key trends to watch this season.
  • Tight inventory of homes on the market is causing prices to rise
  • Fewer homes are being sold as foreclosures, and more through conventional sales
  • It's still cheaper to buy than rent
  • Financing is still a challenge for many buyers
Are you considering buying or selling a home this spring? If so, what makes this season better than others from your perspective?
