Is This a Good Time to Buy Real Estate?

Colleen Kulikowski February 8, 2015

As Realtors we are here to assist buyers to achieve the American Dream – Home Ownership in Western New York. That might be to relocate to a new location, which might mean selling their current property, helping them find another qualified agent in the new area. As your Real Estate Professional we have to be part banker, part analyst, in addition to helping you find the right WNY home.

We have to wade through the massive amount of information that is now available to the Western New York Real Estate consumer and help make sense of it all.

No wonder the consumer is sitting on the fence. It was a lot of information to process when you were looking at two or three neighborhoods. Now people are exposed to a lot of extra information, information that may not be relevant to your specific situation or area. What results is you are forever stuck in analysis paralysis.

If all that is out there is the negative why would you want to purchase a WNY home? For all the bad, there is much good happening in Western New York. There is growth and new development happening, there is construction going on. People, like myself, are coming back to Western New York.

There is hope!

The media seems to do well enough on the negative. Remember that is what gets ratings and newspapers sold. It makes great headlines all the bad in the world, remember corrections and retractions are usually buried somewhere in the paper. The media wants to sell papers, they don’t sell homes.

Taking Real Estate advice from the media is like going to your family physician to get the oil changed in your car.

How are you going to react to the changes in the Western New York Real Estate market? What changes in your plan are you going to make? How are you going to be one of the winners this year?
