RE/MAX National Housing Report September 2019
The Market is Changing Make Sure you are Prepared!

Michael Kozlowski #1 Individual RE/MAX Agent in the State of Colorado! 
Check us out www.team-koz.com

Did you know that fall is an incredible time to buy or sell a home? With that in mind, I wanted to give you a quick update on the housing market from the RE/MAX National Housing Report.
Three Things You Need to Know About Housing
- Home sales slipped slightly year-over-year.
- Buyer demand outpaced the number of homes on the market.
- The number of homes on the market saw its most significant decline in 13 months.
What’s this mean? It means that low interest rates have enticed more buyers, and sellers may be a bit hesitant to put their home on the market. But, with more buyers, it is still a seller’s market. If you’re thinking about a move or want to learn more about our local market, let's talk. Please reply to this email or give me a call to talk about your real estate needs.

RE/MAX National Housing Report August 2019

RE/MAX National Housing Report August 2019

The Market is Changing Make Sure you are Prepared!
Michael Kozlowski #1 Individual RE/MAX Agent in the State of Colorado! Check us out www.team-koz.com

July saw a bounce back in home sales from the disappointing June. It appears that low-interest rates encouraged more buyers to jump into the market in July according to the latest RE/MAX National Housing Report. Here are three takeaways.

- Home sales Increased year-over-year by 2.4%.
- The number of homes on the market declined for the first time in nine months.
- Prices were up year-over-year for the seventh month in a row.

So what can you expect if you’re entering the market this fall? If you’re selling, things are looking up for you. Buyers can expect higher prices. However, interest rates remain in your favor. As we wrap up the end of August, keep in mind that fall is a great time to be in the market. Let’s talk about our local market in person. Give me a call, shoot me a text, or reply to this email to set up a time to meet.

Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend,
