WHAT MAKES A NEIGHBORHOOD A SATISFYING PLACE TO LIVE? This overview of 27 studies on the subject comes to a surprising conclusion.

(HINT: the objective features are less important than the personalities/outlook of the residents.)

As a realtor, however,I know that won't-and shouldn't stop us from considering all the usual factors (schools, shopping, transportation, well-kept homes, etc) when selecting a home and a neighborhood. One thing that can be quantified is the increase in satisfaction when a neighborhood has green (vegetation) & blue (water) spaces in the vicinity.

Looking at these maps and listening to the experts, it seems that prices will remain stable throughout 2020. If you’re thinking about listing your home, let’s connect to discuss how you can capitalize on the somewhat surprising demand in the market now.

With the housing market staggered to some degree by the health crisis the country is currently facing, some potential purchasers are questioning whether home values will be impacted. The price of any item is determined by supply as well as the market’s demand for that item. Each month the Nationa

Why Home Equity Is a Bright Spark in the Housing Market

Breaking down what unemployment means for homeownership, and understanding the significant equity Americans hold today, are important parts of seeing the picture clearly when sorting through this uncertainty. One of the biggest questions right now is whether this historic unemployment rate will initiate a new surge of foreclosures in the market. It’s a very real fear.

Given how we have seen more unemployment claims than ever before over the past several weeks, fear is spreading widely. Some good news, however, shows that more than 4 million initial unemployment filers have likely already found a new job, especially as industries such as health care, food and groc

Recession? Yes. Housing Crash? No.

Many fear a recession will mean a repeat of the housing crash that occurred during the Great Recession of 2006-2008. The past, however, shows us that most recessions do not adversely impact home values.

With over 90% of Americans now under a shelter-in-place order, many experts are warning that the American economy is heading toward a recession, if it’s not in one already. What does that mean to the residential real estate market? What is a recession? According to the National Bureau of Economic
