Huntsville Real Estate Sales Statistics – August 2010

By: Huntsville Real Estate Expert Mike Manosky On September 23, 2010

Home sales will remain soft in the months ahead, but improved affordability conditions should help with a recovery, according to the National Association of Realtors. The recovery looks to be a long process with job numbers being lower than expected in the last couple of months. However, affordability could reach a generational high in the second half of this year because of rock-bottom mortgage interest rates. The loan underwriting standards are tighter, but home buyers can improve their chances of getting a loan by staying well within their budget.

Take a look at how the Huntsville real estate market fared in August.
