SHOULD I sell my HOME RIGHT NOW? Should I buy

This is probably one of the biggest questions agents are getting asked right now, and it’s never been more important to have a good answer for it. 

For all the reasons we mentioned above, the short answer to this question is YES.



  •       Prices are going to drop 15 to 20% buy January 2023.
  •       Prices will then go flat for 6 months with 7 to 8% rates.
  •       Factor in “Normal” 5% appreciation and it take 3 years to get back to today’s prices.
  •       That’s 4 years from not to get back to where we are baring nothing goes wrong.



  •       Increasing rates will counteract price drops
  •       Marry the home. Date the rate
  •       Home ownership is the #1 hedge against inflation
  •       Home ownership is the greatest way to build wealth in America (past, present and future) period!
