Time For Fence Sitters to Jump OffInventories are beginning to drop with builders in the area and sales are starting to improve.  Why is this coming about when the press still talks doom and gloom?  Market forces.  Interest rates have showed signs of creeping up an little bit, and when inventories go down, prices adjust as well.  Speculators of further interest rate declines will notice the reversal and begin buying before they lose the advantage they have been waiting for.As builders inventory from last year fall, their prices will see the normal annual adjustments we have always come to expect in the begining of a new year.  These inventory homes will no longer be in significant competitions with resale homes, and this will begin a gradual shift in what is now a very weighted buyers m...

 I went to the Marvin Village meeting tonight, to catch the tail end of how they are dealing with the proposed development from Longview South, LLC.  Well I wish I knew the history for sure, but you could just cut the tension in the air.  At first is was difficult for the town council to get Lonview to commit to a sit down, but they finally did. 2 on 2.  Really it ends up the meeting will just be about the "Rules of Engagement" about how to act at any future meetings.  Boy I hope something gets accomplished.  I have seen what Longview builds, it would be a shame to walk away from the table.  I am sure they will give us some Open spaces!
