What this means for prospective Astoria Home Buyers?
If you’re looking to buy a Residential (single/multi-family) home in Astoria, you should probably get a move on. The rates are still low and should remain there throughout 2012, however, the residential Astoria home values seem to be rising so if you wait too long, you may end up paying much more on the sale price as well as over the life of the loan.
If you’re looking to buy a Condo in Astoria, now is a GREAT time to do so! The median sale price has decreased by $35K from this time last year so now would be a GREAT time to seize that opportunity. After all, it should not be that long before value of that condo begins to appreciate.  
If you’re looking to buy a Co-Op in Astoria, you may need to hurry up, start looking, and place an offer because if the home sale prices continue to increase, you may find yourself in the same boat as a potential residential home buyer.
What this means for Astoria Home Sellers?

If you are an Astoria Residential (Single/Multi-Family) home owner, you may be in a GREAT position to sell your home at a nice price, and take advantage of these great rates on your next home.
