Take Aways:

Here to help you navigate through real estate from A to Z…

Buyers: It is common to believe that there is an inverse relationship between interest rates and home prices; however, I believe: as interest rates go up, demand goes down. How could this help you as a buyer? As interest rates increase in the 4th quarter of 2022, buyers will have more flexibility from sellers who receive fewer offers on their homes. If you’re interested in starting your next home search, feel free to reach out.

Sellers: In the past 5 years, I’ve noticed October tends to be a month of spiked buyer activity, in comparison to September, when a lot of travel and back to school activities wrap up. Additionally, there is still time to list and sell your home before the holiday season begins when you list your home in October. Contact me for your free home valuation.
