Does the home owner know how important the first impression is!

Crystal ball jacksonville real estate predictionsWe have a meeting of the minds as to what our predictions will be for the next calendar year.  This year was no different.  We started compiling our list, and made sure to include the "no shit Sherlock" predictions as well as the more "huh - not so sure about that one" predictions.  

  • Rising Mortgage Rates:  Yep - it's already happening and will continue to happen as long as we are seeing a stable economy ahead.  
  • More Transactions:  It's been a trend year over year since the dog days of the bust years.  
  • Price appreciation slows:  I believe we are near the top of our current "arch".  "Current" being the key word there.
  • Move Up Buyers are a MAJOR influence this year:  In Jax, we've had too many people S T U K (4 letter word) for too many

We just finished our Radio show for the week, and our topic was a hot one:  

2017, The Year of the Move Up!

Show notes:

Why we believe 2017 is the move up year.......
