I’m not sure if you noticed but spring is nearly here!
The warm winter has made the transition a little less noticeable than in years past but the crocuses and daffodils are up, grass is starting to turn a little greener, and Shamrock Shakes are in season! Another thing that is in season is buying and selling homes. With the warmer weather, buyers are out in force, though we seem to still be lagging in sellers hitting the market which means that most markets are still seller’s markets. With that said, the Federal Reserve has stated that they will begin to raise interest rates sooner this year than later and I expect that to temper the escalation of prices somewhat since a small increase in interest rate has a large impact on payment. Even so, it’s a great time to sell as prices are again hitting all time peaks and your house may be worth more than you think!
