Today we want to reflect a little more on where we’ve been in the real estate market and what we think is going to happen in 2017.
2016 was a banner year for us. Our total sales volume rose 38%. We closed 69 deals, and we have 32 more deals that are still pending. Another thing we’re excited to share is that we got more than 100 Zillow reviews. Zillow is an important measuring stick for us, and getting that many reviews is a testament to all the wonderful experiences we had last year. We want to personally thank you for helping us accomplish this goal.
What do we see happening for the rest of our 2017 market?
We see an extremely robust spring market on the horizon. We say it every year, and we’ll say it again: the spring season doesn’t begin when the flowers bloom and it gets warmer out—it starts now. Buyers are looking for homes now so they can settle in June.
As you might recall in our last video, Derek Lave of Wells Fargo predicted that interest rates rising too high might impact home prices, and that’s the only thing we can imagine slowing down our market. For now, though, we think we’ll keep seeing sales increase.
We’re very excited for 2017 so we can help more people buy and sell homes. If you have any questions or are interested in buying or selling, please don’t hesitate to give us a call. We’d love to speak with you!
