Hopefully,  2019 is off to a good start for you and your family. There's something about the change of the calendar to a new year that evokes optimism, a fresh start, chance for a do-over or simply the time to set new goals. I'm not one to set "new year's resolutions" but I do take the time to evaluate my past year and choose some things I want to do differently in the new one. I'm a big believer in personal development and have a strong desire to always be learning, whether that's an intellectual skill or something as simple as, how to use a pressure cooker...which is on my list. 😊

If buying or selling a home is one of your goals for 2019, you've picked a good time for it. Interest rates are still historically low, inventory is coming up, a little bit giving buyers more opportunities to find the perfect home. Home values continue to rise, although not at the crazy high rates we've seen in the recent past. They're anticipated to rise between 4-6% in 2019, which is higher than the historical average of 3.6%.  (Data from Steve Harney, founder of KCM. (Keeping Current Matters))

I love helping others reach their dreams and goals. I'd be honored to help you.
