So, May is well behind us and the numbers are coming out. Everything looks promising, but is this just the normal annual kick in the pants that the spring/summer brings or is this a sign of encouragement? I think it may be a bit of both. With interest rates as low as you or I are likely to see in our lifetime, the time is now to reap the harvest. Of course there are reasons not everyone is buying or selling. Negative equity is one of the main reasons people are staying put, along with unemployment, an unpredictable economy and a looming presidential election with far reaching consequences. So what do you think? Is the market settling down/improving or do we have time left to suffer?
