A Year of Gratitude
 
In this issue of The Indigo Skye Group newsletter, we want to pause for a moment to say "thank you" for being in our lives. We have collectively come through a tough year - 2020 has not held anything back! As we move forward into a new year, we are expecting blessings out of our heartache, and opportunities out of our challenges. We have learned that these challenging times have taught us to be stronger, more determined, and thankful for our loved ones and the simple things in life. We have embraced our "uncomfortable" zone and we have learned new ways to connect that kept us in touch with you even when we could not leave our homes. You see, we are grateful for YOU, and it has been our continued passion - even through the toughest of times - to bring you the best in service, relationships, and resources to make your home buying and selling wishes come true. We are committed to continue that into and throughout 2021. 
 
In this month's newsletter we share some good information on the real estate market - despite all the challenges, we have ended the year strong! Scroll down to read more about that from the BLOG and in our VIDEO updates. In our FABULOUS FIND we share a great website with some cool home gadgets that may be just what you need to complete your gift buying, so check it out and get to shopping! And of course, you don't want to miss our lineup of FEATURED and COMING SOON PROPERTIES.❄️ We hope you enjoy this month’s newsletter!
 
We would love to hear from you on HOW YOU will be gathering to celebrate this holiday season! Let us know by connecting with us on social - make a post of one of your holiday pics and include our hashtag #indigoskyegroup so we can check it out!
 
 
 
If you know anyone who might be thinking of selling their home, reach out and let us know. We’d love to be matchmakers and have your help finding our buyers a new place to call home!
 
Sending huge thanks and much gratitude for your support and friendship. Please don't hesitate to reach out to us with your real estate needs and questions.
 
Wishing you a happy and joyful holiday and a healthy new year!
 
A Big Win for our Clients
 
Winning Big with a 1031 Exchange
 
This month, we are celebrating BIG with our clients, Ginny and Steven, who we helped complete a 1031 exchange to purchase a 17 unit, gated, multifamily condominium complex located in Irving - the Compton Condominiums!!
 
This unique business opportunity allowed them to purchase all 17 units (mix of 1 and 2 bedroom units), completely renovated, fully furnished, with a year-over-year occupancy rate of 90%. With a niche clientele in place, their newest investment opportunity caters to shorter-term rentals for health care professionals, families relocating to the Metroplex, or in-transition to new living arrangements. 
 
If you're considering the possibilities for investment properties in and around the Dallas area, contact our team today... we'd love to help grow your real estate investment portfolio.

Is Buying a Home Today a
Good Financial Move?
 
There’s no doubt 2020 has been a challenging year. A global pandemic coupled with an economic recession has caused heartache for many. However, it has also prompted more Americans to reconsider the meaning of “home.” This quest for a place better equipped to fulfill our needs, along with record-low mortgage rates, has skyrocketed the demand for home purchases.
 
This increase in demand, on top of the severe shortage of homes for sale, has also caused more bidding wars and thus has home prices appreciating rather dramatically. Some, therefore, have become cautious about buying a home right now.
 
The truth of the matter is, even though homes have appreciated by a whopping 6.7% over the last twelve months, the cost to buy a home has actually dropped. This is largely due to mortgage rates falling by a full percentage point.
 
Let’s take a look at the monthly mortgage payment on a $300,000 house one year ago, and then compare it with that same home today, after it has [...]
