Welcome to John Briscoe Homes
Newsletter Update - Holidays 2017
The last month of the year is upon us and it was really an exciting year for local real estate. Property values continued to soar throughout the year and I will have exact numbers for you in the January 2018 Issue. We saw several homes sell in the one million dollar range that were selling the year before in the 850-900K range. Rates remained consistent hovering mostly in the high 3's to low 4% fixed range. However, most analysts do predict an uptick in rates in the second quarter, settling around the mid four percentile. If you are thinking of buying in 2018 the first quarter may be the time to do so. Analysts also predict another year of low inventory with an average of about 4 month's supply of homes, indicating another very strong seller's market. Demand will continue to exceed supply.
