Time for some predictions. Everyone’s got an idea of what’s going to happen with the real estate market, but at the end of the day none of us actually know.

When it comes to selling your house in this market, things are still moving fairly quickly. You have to understand that it really depends on what your price point is, what demographic and what type of property you’re selling.
