Money Watch Q & A: Short Sales Slowing?

Posted: Updated:

According to the Reno/Sparks Association of Realtors, short sales are on the decline in our area. Tonight's Money Watch Q & A expert, Shirley Larkins of Chase International, says it is because the housing market is on the rebound and homeowners are recouping some of their losses; many are no longer underwater on their homes. In turn, while short sales may be down, equity sales are on the rise. Larkins says home values in some areas are up more than 30% from last year.

To learn more about the current state of the housing market, if it is a good time to buy or sell or if a short sale is right for you, call (775) 858-2222 between 5-6 p.m. to speak with Shirley.
