Uncertainty on where the real estate market and overall economy will land in the coming months continues to stymie activity. We are still seeing a lot of price reductions, longer days on market, and we’re hearing repeated comments of, “I’m going to wait 2-3 months to see what happens.”

If you have questions about how you should proceed during this time, reach out to us. We’re happy to share our thoughts and experience to help you make informed decisions.
