When you're looking to the future, don't look at the national news only. It will depress you. Since MLS is not a reliable source for our area, ask your Realtor what the market is doing and what's really happening in your community. You might be surprised.
The main question is whether there is a healthy and consistent movement of properties in the area. The point is, all real estate is local. So, just because Podunk, MI isn't selling doesn't mean your town isn't. Find the details of your community in your community. Only use the national and state news when it's appropriate.
