News years resolutions here we come…It’s that time of the year again when everyone reflects on the past year and looks forward to what the coming year will bring them. I always find it interesting how one day can act as a reset for so many.. Good time to own shares in a gym or supplement company though! We should all be soon receiving our tax assessments in the mail in the coming few weeks.
I always find this an interesting time because so many of us put so much weight into our homes value in comparison to the assessed value – when the reality is that just because you receive a piece of paper in the mail in the middle of January, it doesn’t mean necessarily that your homes value has increased or dropped… A lot more goes into determining market value, yet we see it have an effect (even if very minor) every year in the minds of home owners and to a certain degree the market. As we look forward in the coming month we should start to see inventory levels increase again with new listings, we should also see some new buyers enter the market (as many new years resolutions include buying a home). Wishing everyone a happy new year and all the best in 2014! And stick with your resolution, if you don’t the only person you will be cheating is yourself.
As always I have the monthly sales stats included for your perusal and if you have any questions at all would love to hear from you!
