2017: A new year for real estate

Mon, 01/23/2017 - 12:00pm

A look back at 2016
2016 had its ups and downs that is for sure.

2017 predictions

  • Economic outlook
    • The private sector will continue its growth.
    • Retail and restaurants will continue their upward trek.
    • Unemployment will remain low.
  • Real estate outlook
  • Trends you will see
  • What this means to me
    • Someone will still have to do the work. No matter the business model or the tech, there will always need to be a person responsible to get the job done, and for us these are our real estate partners, REALTOR® friends and mortgage bankers who make the real estate transaction happen.
  • What I am looking forward to the most
    • Really what I am most excited about is the future. Change is on the horizon, and how we accept and grow with this change is up to us as business owners and citizens of the community… Real estate is local and the dream of home ownership is still very obtainable. That to me makes this year the most exciting.
