"What we saw is that the consumers are showing some confidence in the local economy, enough confidence to actually go out and buy a home," said Doug Hardy, president of Century 21 Today Inc., chairman of the Birmingham office of SKBK Sotheby's International Inc. and president of Realcomp.

...
Hardy said it is not typical to have increases toward the end of the year, and he attributed the increase to the new homebuyer tax credit - which had been scheduled to end in 2009, but was later extended - along with low interest rates and great value for homes.
"There's probably no better time to buy a home when you consider the interest rates and the home prices," he said.

In the northwest suburb of Birmingham, MI, Douglas Hardy, chairman of SKBK Sotheby's International Realty, says, "We have a lot of people a bit paralyzed and unable to move because they're not sure they're going to still be employed. I understand it completely. And yet, Hardy says the abundance of attractive deals across every price range is starting to drive the market to the point where "it may no longer be prudent not to take advantage of great housing prices. Three years ago, SKBK sold a home for $1.2 million. They resold that same home for $600,000 a few weeks ago. "It's a phenomenal house and it was on the market a week."
Sales of top-tier homes in the upper reaches of the real estate market haven't been as affected as houses on the middle and lower ends, Hardy says.

"When people look at real estate now, they no longer fall in love with the house," Hardy says.

Douglas Hardy, Chairman of SKBK Sotheby's International Realty, said the training curriculum, developed by Interstate Title, Inc. of Livonia, Michigan, qualifies candidates as experts in short sale real estate transactions.

Short sales are property resale transactions with the approval of the lender for an amount that is less than the principal owed on the property mortgage. Short sale transactions often represent a viable alternative to foreclosure proceedings for both sellers and lenders. Hardy said the recent increase in distressed home sales-foreclosure and short sale transactions account for an estimated 47 percent of reported sales in recent months-indicates a significant need for short sale expertise.
"SKBK Sotheby's International Realty began developing specialized skills in short sale transactions two year ago. This was absolutely necessary with where the market was heading and in an effort to speed up the process of dealing with the banks," Hardy explained.
Professional help is critical in short sale transactions, Hardy added. In addition to professional help negotiating the best possible terms for the seller, professional representation can offer substantial relief for the seller.
"If sales negotiations and contracts are not properly developed, the results may not be as optimal as possible for the seller and it is our role as professionals to serve our clients with expertise. This training has allowed our associates to offer services and skills to our clients that are not available in most brokerages," Hardy explained. For more information contact
