02 | NOTE FROM KOURTNEY MURRAY

Here we are—nearing the end to another year! To my wonderful clients of 2017, cheers to your new home. To my future clients of 2018, cheers to working together soon. 

A new year brings new changes for KM. We’ve got a new look, created Sip & Learn & have even more big plans for 2018 (did someone say YouTube channel?!)

So, keep in touch. Let’s get through 2018 together.

01 | 2017 IN REVIEW

Oh my gosh, what a year! What all did we see?

  • Higher Sales Prices
  • Low Inventory (more buyers than homes available)
  • More Cases of Multiple Offer Situations (everyone wanting the same home)
  • Shorter Market Times (# of days for sale)
  • Tons of New Construction

Want to know how much a home like yours sold or rented for? Just ask!

03 | OH HELLO, 2018

So, what should you expect? Basically last year amplified—meaning continued low inventory & higher prices. 

Buyers: Be ready to make moves. Homes will get picked up quickly. Be prepared, do your homework & team up with someone who knows what they’re doing—like me! (Ahem, may I suggest also attending Sip & Learn?)

Sellers & landlords: Lucky you—you’ll likely be sitting pretty in a market like this! If priced well & marketed properly (by yours truly) you should be under contract in no time.

Renting: Start thinking. With an abundance of new apartment buildings being constructed, rents are likely to rise yet again, so maybe ease up on brunching & think about the future life you want to live.
