This property was an absolute gem to work with; “Privacy is the new luxury” with this fully-fenced backyard and the gardens creating both a stunning palette and a blank canvas. I really have the best job, getting to work with lovely clients and incredible properties.

Slow Summer Days | Millenials May Drive the Market

Forbes has 6 expert predictions for the second half of 2019:

·         Millennials will drive the market
·         Inventory will improve but not by much
·         Home prices are headed up
·         Mortgage rates will stay low
·         Buyers can take their time in this market
·         Some markets will provide better home buying opportunities than others 

37%

Of All Homebuyers Last Year Were Millennials

This is a prime home buying season for millennials. According to National Association of Realtors (NAR), 37% of all home buyers last year were made up of millennials. The slow down of the housing market has given millennials the opportunity to afford home ownership. According to Forbes’ predictions, housing prices are still expected to rise, but the current low mortgage rates have helped improve the affordability for home buyers. The housing market has become less competitive, and bidding wars have decreased drastically compared to the last several years. Now, buyers don’t feel rushed to close on a deal. Housing conditions continue to vary by market.  Depending on what kind of house you’re looking for and the location, some cities might offer home buyers more affordable bargains due to the change in the regional housing markets.
