Why do you think just about every real estate agent tells you, "NOW"S the time to buy!!!" ???
Here's an intersting statistic:
The total dollar volume for residential sales in Hillsborough County year to date is: $1,072,751,028
2006 YTD = $1,680,712,457
YTD difference = $607,961,429
times 6% commission = $36,477,685.74
Realtors are making $36,477,685.74 less in commissions this year versus last year's YTD numbers.
That's just in Hillsborough County!!!
Tell me they're not feeling the crunch.
But now's the time to buy.....
