Success Stories
“Stacey Hughes Anderson far exceeded our expectations as a realtor. She was first empathetic, knowing that selling our lake cabin was a decision that did not come easy. More than that though, she did her job with excellence. She took care of every detail, starting with staging and listing preparation, but also arranging for several repairs and improvements that we needed to make prior to closing. Throughout the process, she communicated very effectively with us, and represented our interests well. She went above and beyond the duties of a realtor. Selling our cabin was not without its challenges, and Stacey shined throughout the entire process, making the experience as easy as possible on us. She knows the market very well, but differentiated herself through service. We give her our highest recommendation”

The Stock Market's Affect On Real Estate

Posted: February 28, 2018

When the stock market takes a hit, I am often asked how it affects real estate sales.  People ask the same question when interest rates take a hike. For the most part I can say that while it likely affects some buyers of real estate the fundamentals don't change. That is, if someone is searching for real estate whether it be a home, vacation home, vacant land or commercial real estate the search usually does not come to an end. It may change the buyer's criteria but typically it does not stop their quest to purchase.

Corrections in the stock market can scare the heck out of people but typically corrections are more emotional than fundamental.  Interest rate hikes over the next year or so will not spell doom and gloom for the real estate market.  
The fact is the economy appears to be pretty strong right now with economic growth appearing to accelerate. Interest rates are rising because of a better than expected economy so it really isn't bad when this happens.  
Don't get me wrong I surely prefer a stock market on the rise and interest rates to slowly rise. Real estate is normally a long-term investment and 2017 was another good year for real estate in our area. We surely do hope it will continue in 2018!
