For REALTORS®, the market challenges are substantial but potentially rewarding: There is a strong housing demand, but bringing a transaction to conclusion will involve bringing financial, product selection and market response capabilities together in a credible package.
There is a statement that a rising tide raises all boats. In the case of the housing market, that statement will continue to be true to a significant degree. However, the “housing boat” will rise faster in those areas where jobs are added in substantial numbers, and slower in areas that are job constrained.
