Why is the market stronger than last year?

Our real estate market is fueled by a bundle of positive external stimulus factors.

Factors like:

  • Positive economic growth.
  • Job growth and low unemployment.
  • Stable oil prices.
  • Positive consumer confidence.
  • Corporate-relocation moving people in and out (like an Exxon/Mobil).
  • Healthy selection.
  • Excellent mortgage rates, the lowest since February 2018.

All positive External Stimulus Factors are in place.  Our real estate market is healthy and gaining strength.

 Sellers. . .

  • While market conditions are improved, one fact remains, half hearted selling-efforts will fall flat faced.

  • Quality and reach in your marketing and promotional strategy is more important than ever.
