March is here and it’s been looking like spring for the last couple of weeks already. With all the great weather coming, March is packed with events including the Food + Wine Festival and St Patrick’s celebrations.  That great weather also brings flowers and home and garden tours.

Our real estate market in 2017 set a record for the number of sales and 2018 was only a few hundred sales off that 2017 record.  However, 2019 has gotten off to a slow start. January closed sales were off almost 17% from the previous January.  Many think that this was due to the government shutdown.  However, the number of homes under contract in January was very similar to 2017 and 2018.  So, hopefully this was just a blip and the rest of the year will be fine.  But we will keep an eye on the market for you.

We love questions about the market and would be happy to prepare a free detailed home value report for any of you! Our team is committed to providing an unparalleled level of service to our clients. Please let us know how we can help you!
