Helen’s 2015 Real Estate Predictions

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Thank you for your continued loyalty and support. We had an amazing 2014 and we had the pleasure of helping hundreds of families buy and sell real estate. None of our success is possible without your referrals and support and we are very grateful!

The economy along with the real estate market has improved, making our achievements very notable. Similar to last year, this was a year of significant milestones. We were again recognized both locally and nationally in real estate and the awards and accolades received were just too many to list! Ultimately though, internally we have achieved so much more than just awards. We have become paperless, we have a brand new website with improved tools for both buyers and sellers, we have grown our team of professionals, and we are opening another location in 2015. We have so much to be thankful for and it’s all because of you!

The overall 2014 real estate market showed great improvement this year. Although rates climbed and continue to do so, inventory was low so buyers were in the market aggressively pursuing homes. In fact, homes that were priced well, showed well and were marketed by the right broker received offers. Market times were the shortest we have seen in years. And, in many cases we experienced many multiple offer situations due to lower inventory. The market had a lot of movement so it was a very exciting time. We sold homes quickly and for top dollar!

I believe that 2015 will be a year of change and opportunity. With less inventory comes more demand and that over time should drive prices upward. Shrinking inventory means rising prices over time. The rates although lower, will slowly climb up making affordability a little more challenging than in 2014. Before affordability is affected too much, it’s best for buyers to jump off the fence and grab that great deal while it’s affordable. And sellers, know that with lower inventory and buyers being stressed with rising rates means a great opportunity to sell your home for more money. With the right strategy, the right broker and the right price, drawing out a buyer is inevitable in today’s market. Now is the time to make those real estate dreams a reality!

Our tremendous success and growth is from community members like you who refer and support us in our mission to help families buy and sell real estate. We will continue our growth trajectory to be the very best we can be for people like you so when you are looking to buy or sell, you’ll have 100% confidence that you are in the best of hands.

We look forward to another milestone year in 2015. Helping you achieve your goals is our goal. Call today if you or anyone you know needs to buyer or sell real estate. We are here to help!

Yours in success,

Helen Oliveri
