Dutchess County NY July 2007 Real Estate Report

Dutchess County NY like most parts of the country has seen a more sluggish real estate market. More price reduction are noticeable,  sellers have come to the realization that this is necessary in order to get an offer.  There is high inventory, more foreclosures , and the recent turmoil in the mortgage industry has further aggravated the problem.

Buyers who were approved for a 100% mortgage, suddenly found themselves outside in the cold as some sources of financing dried up. 

First Time Buyers will now have to have 15-20% down payment along with good credit if they hope to get a mortgage.  The tight credit is making selling a house even more difficult.  I spoke with several agent who saw their deal evaporated because the mortgage was no longer available to their client.

If you are a seller don't give up hope it is still possible to sell your property, your Dutchess County Realtors  are still making sales, however it is taking longer and we so need you to be realistic with your pricing.
