According to The Columbian, home sales in Clark County rose by 14 percent during the last three months of 2012, compared to the same period of 2011.

This is good news for Clark County residents, since this means that the area is recovering slightly and as more people buy homes, prices on current houses will likely rise.

Since interest rates are still low, it is a great opportunity for people to jump in and snag homes before prices rise and interest rates grow.

The Columbian reports that the average price of a home in December 2012 was $211,000, which was about 3.7 percent higher than November, which means that the average price that people bought homes for was higher.

All of these indicators point to a housing market that is gaining strength. If you are thinking of buy a new home, contact Creekside Mortgage, Inc. now before you miss out on a great opportunity.
