Wow – another Michigan summer slips towards fall and the leaves are obviously in transition. Typically our real estate market quiets a bit the week before and week after Labor Day. Back to school and last chance summer vacations always create this quiet time, but we will pick up again mid September we normally finish strong in October, November and early December. It is already shaping up to do just that again in 2019. Interest rates are fantastic for buyers but available homes for sale are still low and homes priced appropriately are selling fast. Rural areas still lag behind the busier communities, but fall should also bring some last quarter interest to them as well. It has been a very strong year again and we’ll see if 2020 continues. The election year of 2016 was excellent and it is looking like 2020 may just follow suit. All indicators are very positive but the gloom and doom media continues to warn of a market adjustment. We will see…. have a great holiday weekend!
