In 2017, I visited, listed and sold many stunning properties. People welcomed me, into their homes, in hopes of a successful sale of their property. Some retired, others moved to other states due to their job relocation and others moved up or downsized.
Buyers came from near and far. . . .
Near: Bristol, East Hartford, Manchester, Vernon, Southington, East Haven, Bolton & Middletown
Far: Maryland, Arizona, NYC, Florida, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts & Maine.
Our market in the Greater Hartford Area of Connecticut, held its own this year. We didn't have the drop in prices, experienced in the past years. Though, our state and local taxes continue to hinder improvement, our market stayed steady. Jobs are coming back. There is a new optimism that we haven't felt or seen in a very long time. Hope has returned to those seeking the American Dream of home ownership.
The interest rates have remained at historic lows, thereby, enabling many people to purchase and own their homes. People seem to be focused on their personal debt and crushing their bills. Again, positive news on the economy has created more positive energy in our homes and hope for a better future.
Investments that I made this year, are new signs, new lockboxes, more mobile apps to offer my clients easier access to the mls for searcing for their homes, more staging products, my business Coach, continuing education and continuing my enhanced client appreciation program.
Thanks to all of my family, friends, clients, my office team, fellow Realtors and my team of vendors, for another good year! I appreciate each and everyone one of you. I am never too busy for you or your referrals!
Wishing all, a Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy, New Year! #2018
