The Bottom Line
Despite the statistics from June 2021, we are hopeful that we are coming to the end of all-time inventory lows and sky-rocketing price growth. Any increase in interest rates should help cool the housing market back to a more healthy level. Whether you’re buying or selling, it’s important to have an expert you trust on your side to help you successfully navigate this ever-changing market.
