Here we are in the year 2017, and there is a lot to be grateful for. The nationwide real estate market has been running quite well since the great recession. The stock market is hitting all-time highs, and unemployment is now at comfortable lows. It appears that we are smack in the middle of another big real estate boom without the over-leveraging of the last cycle. And while this is all good news, it’s important to see real estate as a game of chess – not checkers. There is plenty of news to give caution to our unbridled optimism. Homeownership continues to fall every year, led by the new wave of millennials that have grown up in the shared economy. Interest rates have been held artificially low by the Fed for years, and the political situation in the US is unstable.
We understand that there are two sides to every issue, and that decision making in this day and age is not easy. That is why we have built this blog. Our goal is to give you the best, unbiased real estate information so that you can make savvy investments – whether for your residence or extra income. It is exciting to enter the fall season with a plan to create the most informative real estate blog online.
