The June 2016 real estate numbers spoke loud and clear that the 2015 rulebook should be thrown out the window! Key indicators such as inventory, close transactions, amount of offers received, more price reductions and others continue to point towards a shift in the market place.

The Brexit mess in the U.K. also guaranteed excellent mortgage rates for buyers thru the end of 2016. Combined with slightly rising inventories and buyers has a better edge compared to 12 months ago.

Properties owners contemplating selling should do a serious re-think about whether we’ve reached a cap to the wild returns on investment we’ve seen over the past 4 years.

You do not want to be on the other side of the market bell-curve.
