Getting in the Holiday Spirit


December 11, 2021
Good morning,
27 Homes have sold in Emerald Bay in 2021 with prices ranging from $3.9M - $13.1M.
Real estate data is encouraging and supportive of a robust housing market being maintained well into the new year. Although rates have generally been trending up and competition has eased slightly as a result, mortgage applications and closed sales, particularly in our beach cities have remained strong.
I hope you're getting into the holiday spirit and are excited to celebrate the magic of the season. I certainly am!
If I can assist you in any way, please don't hesitate to reach out to me!

Did You Know? The world’s population is currently estimated to be at 7.8 billion people. According to some estimates, the global population should peak at around 9.7 billion in 2064. Imagine how many homes need to be built to house almost 2 BILLION extra people over 40 years! If 4 people share a home, that equates to about 12 million new homes per year! Then, population could fall to 8.79 billion in 2100.....maybe a good year to wait to buy a new home? 😉

I don't think a recession is imminent. If the economy maintains its momentum it can withstand several rate hikes." –Byron Wien, Blackstone
