Buyer forecast for 2017:
I believe that the buyer's market we have been in for the last several years came to an end in 2015. It has been trending that direction for awhile, but last year seemed to be a turning point, and 2016 improved things even more for sellers. Seller's are in a much stronger position, and that will continue.

Leading indicators are that the buyer numbers have surged, inventory has sagged and prices are inching upwards.

It is still a great time to be a buyer. Interest rates are low and there are still sellers who need to unload.

If you are thinking of buying in 2017, we'd be happy to help, give us a call!
