Today, we want to share some statistics we recently received from ACRE, the Alabama Center of Real Estate, which is part of the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa.

There is an amazing situation going on in the real estate sales market right now. In July of 2015, the number of sales in Alabama exceeded the same time period in 2007, with over 5,000 sales in July alone! That's an increase of almost 20% since last July. On a five-year moving average, that's a 40.2% increase!

For those of you sitting on the fence, thinking about getting into the real estate business, we're not sure what else to tell you! We are currently in an awfully dynamic market. These conditions are occurring all across Alabama, so it doesn't matter what market you're in; if you have been waiting for a robust market to start or restart your real estate career, there is no better time!

We still have historically low interest rates and the inventory is quite low. Despite a stagnant inventory, demand is through the roof! This means that we are heading toward a seller's market, which is the best type of market for people in the real estate business. It's exciting to see this kind of activity, especially after the long down period we experienced!

If any of you have been thinking about getting into the real estate business, don't hesitate to reach out to us. We have a great market for new Realtors! We look forward to hearing from you soon!
