Move-up Buying

Virtually dead during the recession, move-up buying has resurfaced again in San Diego County. Property owners have been emboldened by rising home prices to list their homes and re-enter the market themselves.  Rising home values have meant more borrowers have emerged from negative equity, giving them the chance to break even or make a profit when selling.
