Fisher says that he hasn't seen an increase in the number of sale and/or lease offerings -- it just depends on the owner and their financial situation.

"Some people -- because of where the market is -- prefer to lease," he says, "to hold onto a property til the market comes back, since they know it will go for more.

"If someone needs the cash, that is their reason to lease or sell, it just depends."
