2012 Arriving Like a Lion!

Consumer Confidence and Mortgage Rates are on the way up!
I am excited for 2012!  I read in the Ogden Standard Examiner yesterday that in a recent GfK Poll (1000 adults with a margin of error of plus or minus of 4%) that 68% of Americans believe 2012 will be a better year than 2011!

In the past, when I begin to hear news of lower unemployment numbers and lower initial unemployment claims (9 weeks in a row!) and THEN I hear a report of strong consumer expectations, we are on the road to see increased real estate activity, SOON!  

If low rates and low home prices are what you would like to take advantage of, DO IT NOW!  With stronger economic reports, increasing real estate activity, and the European financial crisis out of the headlines, we WILL see HIGHER interest rates and HIGHER home prices in 2012!
