Our market is not back to its peak, but it is certainly showing some strong indications that we have a healthy balanced market, unlike many other regions throughout the nation.  With interest rates remaining low and year-over-year price improvements evident for the last 2 years, our real estate market offers a great long-term investment opportunity.   Happy house-hunting!     ~Amy
