I would like to take a minute to thank you all for your business and the referrals you send our way. A year ago our team made a big move from a traditional real estate brokerage to a different brokerage model that allows our team the flexibility to run our business the way we feel is best, which allows us to better serve you and the people you send our way. After now being with eXp Realty for a year, we have grown by leaps and bounds and are excited about the opportunities of the future. We have put together a new “eXpansion” team that allows us to cover all of NC and SC so if you know anyone who needs real estate services in the Carolinas we can help them directly. In our first year we have achieved ICON status with eXp which is the highest achievement award for the company based on volume of sales.
We are in the process of finalizing our “HomeStart” program which focuses on a void in the market where we are able to build new home construction for many first time buyers starting in the 190’s. With extremely low inventory in this price point and the builders focusing on higher priced homes, we wanted to create opportunity for affordability to make the dream of owning a home more attainable for many in our area. If you know someone that may be a fit for this program please reach out to me so we can let them know what their options are.
The current real estate market in our area can be summed up as follows. Buyer demand is high, available homes for buyers are at all time lows. Home prices are rising about 8% compared to last year. Buyers are trying to take advantage of the historically low mortgage rates but are challenged because there are not enough homes on the market. Homes we are listing are selling quickly and are getting multiple offers driving prices higher. We need more homes to sell so if you know someone thinking of making a move please let us know, we would love to help them maximize the equity in their home. 2020 is winding down and I know many of you are looking forward to turning the page. Hopefully soon things will begin to normalize in our world and we can get back out and be together without reservation. In the meantime we are thankful to serve you and your friends however you need help in the real estate world. I look forward to speaking with you soon and stay safe!
