Although real estate experts were unsure of how the housing market would fare after the expiration of the federally-funded homebuyers tax credit, the recent Twin Cities Seasonal Trend Report for Summer 2010 found that it's looking good for both buyers and sellers, RE/MAX said. "Our sales boards and numbers look really healthy," RE/MAX real estate agent Mike Vanderheyden said.
There are several signs that lead experts to believe the Twin Cities area would be a good place to purchase a home, RE/MAX said. Recovery is in process with fewer foreclosures in the spring than expected. Average home prices are also rising, and mortgage interest rates continue to stay low.
