A letter from Joseph A. Horning, President of Shorewest, REALTORS®
Today there is a lot of noise and mixed messages about the housing market. Is it a buyer’s or a seller’s market? Are we on the verge of a slow down or will the economy expand, and are homes at risk? What will happen to home prices in the future? It is important to know the answers to these concerns, and Shorewest is here to help clear up some of the confusion.
We are seeing the current market transitioning from a seller’s market to a more normalized market. Buyer demand remains strong, which has been propelled by strong employment and low interest rates hovering around the mid-three percent range. Home values also continue to appreciate with recent studies showing increases of four to six percent over the next five years. Combined, these factors make now a great time for both buyers and sellers.
