Not a good sign that the recession is going to be over any time soon!  Sales of homes in the Harrisburg area and mid-state Pennsylvania were down a whopping 30% for the third quarter of 2010, compaired to the third quarter of 2009.

It is now taking an average of 103 days to sell a home.  Some people have reduced their homes to less than they paid for them and they are STILL not selling!

Fears about the economy and job security are keeping people from making major purchases.  This is TOTALLY a buyers market!
