Real Estate Update – Despite a lot of shifting in the market over the past few months, we are still in a seller’s market with low inventory and many pre-approved buyers looking for homes. Days on market are slowly increasing and buyers are often able to bid on properties without the frantic competing. If you’re a buyer with a pre-approved mortgage, it could be an excellent time to buy – interest rates have increased but there are more homes on the market than in the spring, and list prices seem to be a lot closer to sale prices so you have a better idea of what you can buy. If you have questions or want to chat about the market, give me a call – I’d be happy to help!

If you have any info you would like included in the December newsletter,
please call Rosie at 902-209-7073 or email
