Home foreclosures are on the decline, housing inventory is tightening and mortgage interest rates are at record lows. But what does this mean to buyers and sellers. The National Association of Realtors,' Gary Thomas. CUT: (Thomas) Buyers are going to have to be very prompt on making offers and deciding on a home, and make their best offer right up front. As a seller, you still need to properly price your home and make sure it looks very good for the buyers when they come in. SCRIPT: Thomas says sellers should think in terms of curb appeal.

So, they have a professional come in and make sure the home looks at its best. SCRIPT: But when it comes to buying a home, Thomas adds realtors are a great resource because they know the neighborhoods. CUT: (Thomas) A buyer wants to make sure they are getting into the right neighborhood, the right schools and looking at the homes that are affordable for them.
