Home Sales Prices Grew in January

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) February 20, 2013

The Federal Savings Bank is proud to report that sales were higher for January this year than last. According to the January RE/MAX National Housing Report, sales increased by 9.1% year-over-year while the prices of homes also increased by 8%.

“Such a strong start to 2013 shows a positive trend is carry through from last year. I expect the housing market to continue to improve for the rest of the year,” says Nick, a banker at the Federal Savings Bank.

According to the RE/MAX report supply and demand is playing a major a role in the recovery of the housing market. Supply is diminishing while demand is increasing. Due to increased income, individuals who may not have been able to afford a home in previous years are now applying for mortgages. Historically low interest rates are also encouraging homebuyers to secure a loan now before the rates go up.
