About Agent Basics
When it comes to the housing market, 2015 saw a modest return to health for many aspects of the national real estate sector — a promising sign for many agents and brokers across the country as we head into 2016.
More and more foreclosures were completed, while the number of new filings (thankfully) eased. Sales of new and existing homes continued their slow-but-steady pace upward. Even mortgage rates remained near the historic lows at which they’ve now been for a few years. All of this adds up to a bright 2016 housing market forecast.
But before you begin your listing presentations and open houses come January 1, it’s important to closely analyze all of the biggest real estate statistics and housing market trends this year to get the full grasp of how the sector has performed and what’s likely ahead. In other words, gain insights that can help you formulate your real estate marketing plan: from your landing pages and blog posts to your social media messages and drip email campaigns.
