DETROIT (WWJ) – Home sales are up in metro Detroit.  Realcomp says about 500 more homes sold this July over last year in all but Wayne County.  CEO Kelly Sweeney of Caldwell Banker-Weir Manuel Realtors says homes are selling for more, too.

“Again, we are at the bottom, prices can only go up from here, I think for young people or anybody … the next 10-15 years it looks like a very positive appreciation for real estate,” said Sweeney.

“In certain markets now particularly south Oakland County, Birmingham, Bloomfield … the Woodward corridor, we are finding actual price appreciation, a shortage of inventory, very, very good buyer activity, and in many cases it’s multiple offers and it’s over asking (price),” said Sweeney.
