The New York State housing market posted a solid first quarter of 2013 with gains in closed sales, median sales price and pending sales compared to the 2012 first quarter, according to the housing market report released today by the New York State Association of REALTORS. The statewide inventory of homes for sale continued to decline, reaching its lowest point since January 2006.
“It’s simple economics at work in the statewide housing market,” said Duncan R. MacKenzie, NYSAR CEO.

Deciding to put your home on the market can bring on a wide range of emotions. You may feel excitement at the prospect of moving on or moving up. Some sellers feel anticipation about what the future holds and about what kind of deals buyers may bring to the table.
On the opposite end of the spectrum you may be feeling sadness or even regret. That's because selling your house can feel a lot life selling your home. Any and all of these emotional responses are normal!
Many of today's renters are looking for ways they can make the transition to homeowner. It's a great goal and dream to have! Homeownership comes with a long list of benefits. Studies have revealed that homeowners can expect high levels of stability and security, increased high school graduation rates, and an overall feeling of health and well-being.
Additionally, owning a home is a way to build long-term wealth. Renting is a one way road for your money. It goes out, but never comes back. When you own, though, you are paying towards an asset. You build equity over time and are also in line for some great tax credits, deductions, and rebates.

Sometimes the terms "agent" and "realtor" are used interchangeably by people. These two terms mean very different things, though!
Let's take a look at just what makes an agent a REALTOR® and how you can know which one is the right fit for you.
A real estate agent is a professional that helps people buy and sell houses and land. In order to legally do business as an agent a person must take a real estate licensing course and/or pass their state exam.
