Get Ready for Good Things to Happen in 2015
The New Year is freshly fallen snow the morning after a storm...free of footprints and markings of travel...as each day unfolds, so, too will be your path into the New Year, footprints in the snow.
Who doesn’t love a new beginning, a fresh start, or a clean slate? So pour the bubbly and welcome in the New Year as you escort 2014 out the door! Welcome 2015 with your 12 months of new opportunities, 52 weeks of success stories, and 365 days to dream bigger, sparkle more and shine brighter than we did last year!
Predictions for the 2015 Real Estate market are positive and point to a better year for both buyers and sellers. Home values will continue to rise. Interest rates will remain low at least in the first part of the year. Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae will now back mortgages with as little as 3% down. Banks will be easing up on credit requirements. All of these factors combined with high rents make home ownership financially more desirable inspiring Millenniums to finally be enter the market as first time home buyers. Current owners will be anxious to trade up and take advantage of historically low interest rates. Baby Boomers who have been waiting for home values to increase will sell the large family home and downsize. Folks who got hit with foreclosures in 2008 will have them falling off their credit reports and be entering the market again. It’s going to be a good year!
Team leader Joe Houghton is ready! “I believe 2015 is going to be my best year ever, personally and for the whole Minnesota Property Group! I’m excited about our ambitious marketing approach and about the team!” Better yet, here’s Joe speaking for himself as only he does best!
Here at the Minnesota Property Group we are over-the-top excited about the coming year and the great potential we see in the 2015 market! We grew the team in 2014. Lindy Medeiros (me) took on the responsibilities of Marketing Director, Realtor Andrew Klinkner came on board, and we welcomed John Williams as our intern extraordinaire! Working both on the front line and behind the scenes, we join Joe Houghton leading the team, and seasoned Realtors Derek Irving and Mike Milne, each of us focused on customer service and ready to rock in the New Year by providing our clients with the best real estate experience on the planet! Here’s how.
