  As winter approaches, we have been very busy at Treu Real EstateGroup.  Buyers right now are serious and many are not from the area.  For those looking to buy a home, a home warranty may be a good option.   We sat down with Amy Bartz from Home Warranty of America to discuss some of the great products that she offers.  Their warranty is a great value as it is a thirteen month warranty.  This benefits the buyer with an extra month of coverage which can really make a difference for previously owned homes.  For our buyers, we recommend home warranties because you can never know how well a home has been maintained until you are in there, even despite an inspection.  First time home buyers, especially, should consider this insurance in the case…

Today, we will be going over the Palm Beach Real Estate Update.  This is the real estate market stats that you need to know when buying or selling.    First of all, we have noticed a lot of really urgent buyers looking for properties, increasing the chance for sellers to receive multiple offers!  The buyers are very serious and many are first-time home buyers in the mid-priced range.  Other buyers are coming to us for a move-up buy into their dream home.   The demographic of first-time home buyers has shifted to a younger age group.  Buyers in their late-20's and early-30's are buying more expensive homes than previously and showing great financial responsibility--something that we love to see!  Past research had shown that many…

When we compare the numbers of last December to January, here is what we discovered.  In December, there were 30% more homes that closed than in January.  Also inventory increased 68% in January from December.
