So what does this mean for you?

First, contrary to what you might be hearing in the media, the real estate market in Ozaukee and Washington county is moving -- no pun intended. If you're in the market to sell your current home, buyers are out there. We typically see an upswing in activity this time of year -- and it's no different this year -- so it's a great time to get on board.Jump in

 

 

 

Second, if you're considering buying a home -- whether it be a first-time purchase, upsizing, or downsizing, this is a great time to jump in, as well. You can see inventory is still high, so you have a lot from which to choose. And did you know that interest rates have been and continue to be at or below 5%???  No one knows how long they'll stay there, so why not jump in now??

 

Uncertainty

 

Feeling a little overwhelmed or confused about everything you're hearing or reading? Not sure what your next step should be? Contact a local realtor for some guidance. We know the market better than anyone.
