Emerald Bay Collection

February 8, 2020
Good Morning,
EMERALD BAY DID YOU KNOW?  Emerald Bay’s Active Listing inventory is DOWN. We only have 12 homes on the market with an average of 152 days on the MLS. And the good news is that we currently have 5 homes under contract (one of them is a pocket listing). Looks like a seller's market to me:)
DID YOU KNOW?  A Japanese woman named Kane Tanaka has extended her record as the world’s oldest person by celebrating her 117th birthday at a nursing home in Fukuoka in southern Japan. Tanaka marked her birthday with a party on Sunday along with staff and friends at the nursing home. (Huffington Post)
DID YOU KNOW? All the world's real estate is worth more than 12 times the GDP of the US or 18 times the GDP of China. Residential real estate comprises about 75% of this at $168.5 trillion.
