Resources Real Estate’s 2018 Predictions

Resources Real Estate Luxury Real Estate in Monmouth County, NJ 732-212-0440

Happy New Year 2018! Now that 2017 is behind us we can look forward to a prosperous New Year!

2017 saw low inventory and is continuing to trend that way so far in 2018.  While inventory is low and in strong demand, home prices are expected to rise making it a great seller’s market. New construction is predicted to be the primary driver in sales this year. Millennials who are on the hunt for a family home and homeowners who are looking to upgrade or downgrade your current living space should start the process now.  Resources Real Estate is on the list of Inc 5000’s fastest-growing private companies in the USA for the second consecutive year. With an amazing marketing team, knowledgeable, honest and compassionate agents on your side, your experience will be nothing but smooth sailing!

Resources Real Estate’s 2018 Predictions

2018 real estate will boom! low inventory, increase in median home prices, interest rates stable

“I see 2018 as being the year real estate will boom!  Reports have indicated low inventory in Monmouth County towards the end of last year, an increase in the median home prices, as well as interest rates being stable.  As a result, I believe this trend will continue- buyers and sellers, you have to be in it, to win it!  Being ahead of the curve is important, and working with a knowledgeable, reliable, honest and innovative agent will not only expedite your real estate needs, but it will also make it a stress-free experience!”
