Where Do Experts Say the Housing Market is Heading?
As we enter the middle of 2021, many are wondering if we’ll see big changes in the housing market during the second half of this year.

Don't Be Fooled by
Head-Spinning Headlines
There's likely to be some sensational headlines about real estate, mortgage rates, and inflation in the next several months, especially those doing year-over-year comparisons. And there ARE some pretty phenomenal things going on in our housing market right now, but comparing things to a year ago without looking thru the right lens can be very misleading.
