2016 is starting off to be a busy year in real estate. While not as many properties came on the market as compared to January 2015, activity has increased in both the median list price and the median sales price.  Even with the Feds raising rates in December of 2015, interest rates have still remained below 4% for most loans. How long this will last will depend on many factors.
