lise howe group: Why Should You Think About Selling Your Home This Year? - 01/14/21 05:18 PM

As CoreLogic explained:
Home price growth remained consistently elevated throughout 2020. Home sales for the year are expected to register above 2019 levels. Meanwhile, the availability of for-sale homes has dwindled as demand increased and coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreaks continued across … (7 comments)
