Success Stories
“Jeremy helped us find our perfect lake property! It has character, a great sunset view and it was level to the lake. Sometimes finding the property of your dreams and agreeing on a price is the easy part of buying a home. In our case, we had a number of obstacles to overcome before we could close and Jeremy worked through each challenge with patience and a positive attitude. He demonstrated his expertise time and again, dug into the details to solve problems and was amazingly resourceful and responsive. He brought integrity, kindness and candor to every interaction and that meant the world to us. Eve our real estate attorney commented on Jeremy's competency and character. We remain on friendly terms with the prior owners of the property and to us that is the definition of success. We enthusiastically recommend Jeremy Mavis and the team at Woodland Developments and Realty. ”

Survey Finds Americans In The Mood To Buy

Posted: March 27, 2017

There are an endless number of reasons you might decide to buy a home at any particular time in your life. Whether you just got a new job on the other side of town or are looking for a place closer to family, the motivation behind a move is usually very personal.

But there are economic factors at play, as well. Your financial situation, optimism about the future, and perception of the market can also influence a decision to stay where you are or pack your belongings.

Fannie Mae's monthly Home Purchase Sentiment Index looks at how Americans are feeling about buying a home, the real estate market, and their personal economic outlook. In December 2016, the overall index fell slightly from the month before, though the number of Americans who said they thought it was a good time to buy a house was up from November. Doug Duncan, Fannie Mae's senior vice president and chief economist, says there's been an increase in economic optimism recently but whether it carries through the rest of the year is uncertain.

“A spike in economic optimism in the immediate aftermath of an election is typical,” Duncan said. “Whether consumers will sustain this level of optimism into 2017 remains unclear … If this optimism comes to fruition, it should translate into stronger income growth and increased job security for consumers – the two HPSI components that could help support housing sentiment this year."
