There is high buyer activity and a historically low number of houses for sale right now. The perfect time for homeowners to sell their house is when the demand for homes is higher than what’s available for sale.

Buyers are more likely to work with you if it means they can purchase a home in a market where…

      Closing Costs are the topic of today's blog post! This is an extremely important topic, because lately I have been realizing that a lot of buyers (and some sellers) do not factor in closing costs when considering purchasing/selling a home.

So who is responsible for what?  This graphic just represents the most common closing costs incurred by the buyer/seller. Certain things (for example the survey and owner…

As we begin another year, everyone wants to know: “Where is the housing market headed in 2019?”

It’s not only buyers, sellers, and homeowners who are impacted. The real estate market plays an integral role in the overall U.S. economy.  Fortunately, key indicators point toward a stable housing market in 2019 with signs of modest growth. However, shifting conditions could impact you if you plan to buy, sell, or refinance this year.
