If you have been reading the Lake Mary Real Estate Blog for any length of time, you’ll know that January home sales are historically the lowest of any month out of the year. There were 28 home sales in Lake Mary in January. Our local market starts to heat up (along with the weather) and sales rise in the spring and during our summer buying season.
Short Sales are still a prominent part of our real estate market in Seminole County and distressed properties make up three quarters of the homes under contract. The debt forgiveness act continues to give homeowners relief through 2012, but homeowners who want to take advantage of this opportunity need to act soon. A Lake Mary Short Sale is a viable alternative to foreclosure and provides homeowner to homeowner transfer where the property and community benefit from the avoidance of a foreclosure and an abandoned home.
