Jim Stewart, VIREB 2011 President says “Overall in the markets we are seeing normalization and stability. On a local level, however, we clearly show some big swings and these spikes and troughs reflect the different perspectives within our own specific areas. If you look at the market over the longer term you get better perspective of what the market is doing. The last two years have been a bit of a rollercoaster for the real estate market.”
