What Does the Market Hold for 2012?

While it is impossible to make any long term predictions regarding the residential real estate market, especially at the national level, more experts and real estate prognosticators appear to agree (more so than in any of the previous 5 to 7 years) that 2012 may be the year the market finally hits the bottom in terms of pricing. In addition, there is a pent up amount of demand in terms of both buyers and sellers who have been sitting on the sidelines for a long time now with their plans on hold (in some cases up to  several years) who now feel they need to make a decision and get on with their lives.

Many of us would like to have the ability to time the market perfectly in order to avoid selling at the bottom or in the case of buyers to do exactly the opposite. Unfortunately, the rate at which information is gathered, (especially for real estate) does not lend itself to such timely decision making scenarios. It may take anywhere up to 6 to 12 months before we will know for sure when the market finally begins to reverse itself and by that time the opportunity to time the market will be lost.
