Click here for the May statistics from the Santa Fe Association of REALTORS.
The news continues to be good. Single family sales in the City have improved May 2010 to May 2009, 42 to 32 respectively. Median prices have also jumped from $304,628 to $432,000 and volume went up from $13,586,824 in 2009 to $17,925,063 in 2010. Of the 42 sales, the largest portion, by far, 25 sales were in the lower end, median sale price of $205,000. This is a reflection of the First Time Home Buyer Tax Credit which ended on April 30th, 2010 and we see the closings in May and perhaps some in early June.
In the County, we see even more improvement as sales in May 2010 rose to 58 units compared to only 32 in May 2009. Volume also rose dramatically from $17,570,193 in 2009 to $31,414,625 in 2010. Median price however, dropped nominally from $441,250 May 2009 to $404,975 in May 2010.
Let's hope the trend continues upward.

Dear Reader,
Below are two articles, one about the stock market and one about the Real Estate Market. Paying attention to the tone and content of the two articles, one wonders who owns the media. I leave it to you to decide.
RISMEDIA, May 26, 2010—Existing-home sales rose again in April 2010 with buyers motivated by the tax credit, improving consumer confidence and favorable affordability conditions, according to the National Association of Realtors. Existing-home sales, which are completed transactions that include single-family, townhomes, condominiums and co-ops, increased 7.6% to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.77 million units...

Why April's rosy housing numbers, low mortgage rates, and consumer confidence don't mean that housing is back.

What did I do when I was in a situation, I needed a house, and the market was down?
I called Baro Shalizi of course. I told him what I wanted and knew he could find it. Dollar amount. Neighborhood. Bedrooms and baths. Yard for the dog and space for grandchildren. An office, a spare room and room for friends, even a garage. He never gave up! He found me a home.
Patient; ever patient and diligent that’s Baro.
I work for Baro and I worked with Baro to find a new home when I needed to move. He worked hard for me and he will work hard for you. 
You won’t find a better person to help you find your new home. Honest, ethical, smart and sensitive, that’s Baro.
