“The fact remains that we are still in a seller’s market and the demand for homes is very high,” said Helen Graham, 2013 president of the Reno/Sparks Association of REALTORS. “This demand is mostly made up of homes in the under $250,000 price range. In June 2013, 62 percent of the homes sold were priced at or below the $250,000 price.
Homebuyers need to understand that if they continue to wait for home prices to decline, while Interest rates have been Increasing for the past five months, it is likely to lower their purchasing power.”
