Real Estate News: Thinking of Selling? Now May Be the Time… #movemetotx

The housing market has started off much stronger this year than it did last year. Lower mortgage interest rates have been a driving factor in that change.

According to the latest Realtors Confidence Index Survey from the National Association of Realtors (NAR), buyer demand across the country is strong. That’s not the case, however, with seller demand, which remains weak throughout most of the nation.

Learn more about these implications & what “months of inventory” means for you as a BUYER and a SELLER in this quick video!

As always, if you’re thinking about making a move in 2020 or beyond, give us a call today!
