Since Sunday this week, web visits to this website have been up around pre-August (e.g. the onset of the dismal real estate news) levels, after showing drops of 15 to 20% for the past 5 or 6 weeks. Property searches on the MLS search section of this site are also back up, and since Monday I’ve been fielding a lot of inquiries about properties. Of course, this doesn’t necessarily translate into sales. But its certainly a positive sign that there seems to be a return of interest.
