"What we see depends mainly on what we look for."

                                                                                             - John Lubbock

 

So, where the heck are we?  Interest rates remain at all time lows, inventory is negatable and buyers are continuing to show up in full force!  All of this amidst a  global pandemic.  What gives? 

Well, let's break it down a bit...

  • Low interest rates igniting robust purchasing demand
  • Housing shortage. As we move into fall, the election, and the school year, the low inventory will eventually put a constraint on future sales for a short time and then increase again
  • Properties at all price points are selling from first time buyers, investment or second homes, to the high-end luxury estates.
  • City dwellers have growing desires to move to the suburbs
  • Home office space has become essential and now in in big demand
  • Homeowners, after 6 months of being locked up at home, now want different living spaces
  • Homeowners equity at all time high  
  • First time buyers are ready to move away from living with their parents
  • Up tic in vacation and second homes due to slow down in travel industry.
  • Economists predicting the real estate arm of the economy will continue to fuel the US economy well into 2021. 

            Maybe it's time to stop sitting on the sidelines. 

If you are indeed considering a real estate investment, purchase or just wanting information or an evaluation of your own home, please meet with a true professional Realtor.

What makes a great Realtor, or for that matter anyone in the service industry's ability to stand above the crowd?  Service beyond expectations and the drive to provide a seamless and positive experience with exceptional attention to the details.  If you look at all the luxury hotels and the experience and ambiance they are providing, it takes organization, ability to adjust to the client needs, knowledge of all the services available and the desire to provide a extraordinary experience.  Top agents are able to give their clients an experience that sets them apart from the crowd.  Demand the best and seek out excellence.  

I approach every transaction with the knowledge that my clientele will not only get the very best possible service, but I will provide an extraordinary experience beyond expectations with my client's fiduciary goals at the fore front. 

Stay safe, healthy, and yes ... we are making progress. 

My best,

Susie
