I'm feeling the positive vibes in the housing market. I mean let's face it, we've had a tough winter in New England this year but the real estate activity has been strong. Even in the worst of weather, buyers have been out aggressively purchasing homes. This is great news for sellers and for the real estate market in general.
The worst of the busted bubble seems to be over. Don't get me wrong. There are still plenty of homeowners underwater but it appears that the foreclosure rate has slowed down a bit. This is great news.

Some consumers who lost their home or needed to do a short sale in the bubble, are now beginning to rebuild their credit to the point where some have actually been able to purchase a new home. I saw this first hand with one of my clients. They lost their home in 2007 and were able to buy a new home in 2013. Not the easiest thing to do with the tougher guidelines from mortgage lenders. But it is possible.

I also read that there are some subprime mortgage programs that are available for people with less than perfect credit. This indicates to me that lenders are showing faith in the housing and economy.

Consumer confidence is also getting stronger. People are feeling more secure to spend money on other things besides their essentials. The unemployment rate is also going down. I always believed that once people feel comfortable about employment, it would equal a better, more stable housing market.
