Tucson MLS Statistics October 2012

The month of October went mostly in reverse but it is not all bad. Closings were up 136 units and listings under contract was down just a little. We are starting to see more listings on the market each month and that can create a problem down the road if we are not able to sell down the inventory. We will be seeing more new homes being built and that will cause the Inventory to go up. At this point with all the tax things coming to a head the end of the year, we will be in limbo land for a while. I must say I am concerned as to where we will be over the next six months. The Short Sale/Foreclosure forgiveness for IRS taxes also expires the end of the year.

I see the Economy is coming back slowly but I am not real confident in what will happen with employment when the Health Care really kicks in. How many jobs will be lost when employers feel the costs. Someone has to pay and I do not see a large number of employers hiring unless it is a part time employee. Not my doing or wish!! It all sounds great but nothing is free!!

I am going to wait till January to really see and say what I think. I will post November with some comments but I want to see what the Administration is really thinking, as right now it is not what we need.

Have a great Turkey day and remember we give thanks for our Nation, which in my opinion is deteriorating. Not my wish!!
