Today affirmed my beliefs that the economy is moving in a positive direction! We had a team meeting at the Keller Williams - Bellevue office where we discussed new technology, how to grow our businesses, but more importantly, that we as a country are heading in the right direction.
How, you might ask?
Patrick Stone, CEO of WFG National Title, was one of the presenters today and spoke about statistics and trends of our current economy. Here are a few of the points he made that give me hope for this year:
As we're seeing the market heat up, Pat also predicts housing prices will appreciate another 6% or so, which will also serve to bring more balance to the housing market.Â If you've spoken to your local Realtor recently, they'll tell you how sellers are getting multiple offers and buyers are over-bidding on those properties. More balance would be a welcomed addition to this housing environment.
There were plenty more statistics and facts Pat gave us, but overall it sounds like this year is going to be a great one for real estate and the economy as a whole.
