Top 10 Reasons why I choose to Sell Real Estate in 2013 Let's face it, selling Real Estate has been challenging for most agents since 2008. Lending got tight, foreclosures loomed everywhere and short sales took forever! Now we face low inventory in a sellers market! Some folks think we just put a sign in the yard, but selling real estate is more than that.  It can very challenging and it is also very rewarding financially and mentally. Everyday is different and you really do get to help people honestly and fairly! Americans are saying it is a good time to sell ! Interest rates should remain low through this year....The lowest rate I saw last year at closing was 2.8%! Housing starts are everywhere in Texas, builders are building specs again. Buyers are feeling a sense of urgency, buy now...
