I hope everyone is enjoying their Holiday Season. I keep wondering where the heck 2016 went - this year just flew by.
I normally do not project much on where home prices are going, but this year I get the distinct feeling that 2017 is going to be a banner year for real estate. I have no stats to point to, just experience and gut feel. I hope I am right.
Meanwhile, the last several weeks have seen a lot of buying activity. As I mentioned in my last several newsletters, house Inventory is quite low and going lower in ALL the Villages I cover. While the number of people selling appears to be rather normal, there are simply more Buyers coming out - first timers, those trading UP, Investors, etc. I don't know where they are coming from or where they are getting the money to pay some of these prices. I suspect these Buyers have been holding back for their "perfect house" and now that interest rates are starting to rise, the buyers may not want to wait anymore and pay higher mortgages rates. If this keep up, the next several months are going to be wild. We'll see.
Have a fun, happy, healthy and safe New Year.
