The housing market continued to favor buyers in 2012 with low prices and low mortgage rates. Those with good credit scores and sizeable downpayments successfully became home owners. The CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® (C.A.R.) 2012 Home Buyer Survey looked at buyers in greater detail.
The Survey covers home buyer demographics, the types of homes purchased and preferences, the details of the buying experience from the buyer perspective, and many aspects concerning client and real estate agent interaction.
