Home sales in February were at the second-highest level in over a decade, according to the National Association of Realtors.  All areas of the country had a rise in real estate contract signings.  Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist, says "February's convincing bump in pending sales is proof that demand is rising with spring on the doorstep. "Buyers came back in force last month as a modest, seasonal uptick in listings were enough to fuel an increase in contract signings throughout the country," he said. "The stock market's continued rise and steady hiring in most markets is spurring significant interest in buying, as well as the expectation from some households that delaying their home search may mean paying higher interest rates later this year."

These highs are caused by the lack of supply, not by a housing "bubble" as in 2006.   Prices are up because of shortage of available inventory.. it's the law of supply and demand!  

Buyers don't have a lot of homes to look at, so if you're thinking of selling.. NOW is the time to GET GOING!

 Not only will you get prime exposure and price for the home you're selling,  you will enjoy low mortgage rates on your new home purchase. 

Mortgage rates for a 30-year mortgage are currently around 4%, still below rates of 50 years ago!!  These rates are rising slowly, but they are rising.

The market value of your home is not...

1. What you have in it.

2. What you need out of it.

3. What you want.

4. What it appraised for.

5. What you heard your neighbor’s house sold for.

6. What the tax office says it’s worth.

7. How much it is insured for.

8. Based on memories and treasures.

9. Based on prices of homes where you are moving.


The true Market Value of Your Home Is...

What a Buyer is willing to pay for your property.

1. Based on today’s market.

2. Based on today’s competition.

3. Based on today’s financing.

4. Based on today’s economic condition.

5. Based on the buyer’s perception of condition.

6. Based on location.

7. Based on normal marketing time.

Jeff and Linda Levein are Amazing Realtors! I would consider my wife and I to be very picky buyers, as we wanted to make sure we saw every house possible before we purchased our dream home. We must have looked at over 60 houses and all the while Jeff and Linda were by our sides. They were always on time to every location, promptly responded to our listing request, and were willing to drive all over town with us. They never pushed or rushed us into making a decision and stuck with us until we found our dream home. Once we found the house we loved, they were very quick, accurate, and efficient in preparing our offer. Jeff offered suggestions as to what we should ask for and at what price we should start. My wife and I got the house we wanted and are very…

Our experience with Jeff and Linda was superb! My family was very impressed with their knowledge and handling of our home sale. They were very good with letting us know when house showings were being scheduled. We maintained constant communication with every aspect of selling our home. At closing, my realtor let me know exactly what we needed to bring. They were wonderful!!

This will be my 23 real estate transaction and I can attest that it is clearly evident why Jeff and Linda are national leaders in their profession. Firstly, they were able to work out the sale of my home on the first day of listing . While this result may not be typical, they only work with qualified buyers when representing the seller. Their vast experience opens resources in which they are able to find qualified buyers that are interested and ready to make a purchase. This greatly expedites the days on market process. Secondly, Jeff and Linda WILL have your back. They represent the seller and the buyer and create a great deal for all parties. They diligently negotiate to ensure all parties walk away from the transaction happy. This is a rarity in
