On the “mood of the market,” Tara Nicholle-Nelson, a real estate author, analyst, and commentator, recently offered four predictions for the 2012 real estate market.  Remember, real estate is local, and these predictions have a national perspective.

  1. Even more foreclosures
  2. REOs and short sales will become the new normal
  3. So-called “smart cities” will do well (could Greenville be one of these?)
  4. Consumers will get hopeless (a good thing?)
