The RGroup Report: July 2024

The RGroup Report: July 🎇

Happy 4th of July! 🎇

A Note From Angie 
It’s a celebration of red, white, and blue; of freedom and independence. Happy 4th of July!
I hope you’ll have a wonderful time celebrating with fireworks, barbecues,
and all the festive activities (See our events section below!).

Beyond the holiday fun, summer is also in full swing. Take advantage of the vibrant season by joining the Rock the Dock tours at Lake Wawasee on July 13 and Webster Lake on July 27, featuring Beez and the Rocker. It’s the perfect way to soak in stunning lake views with good music and good company.

While we’re soaking in the warm sunshine, it’s worth noting that the real estate market is also HOT, HOT, HOT! Summer is always one of the best times to buy and sell because people are out and about, enjoying the weather, and making big moves.

The summer market is proving to be a vibrant season for real estate. While home prices are still expected to rise, mortgage rates are forecasted to dip slightly, providing a relief for buyers. This combination keeps home sales steady, making real estate
a solid investment choice.

According to the Mortgage Bankers Association, mortgage rates are at their lowest levels in months, spurring a surge in demand for purchase loans. This trend highlights the determination of buyers entering the market. Simultaneously, sellers are actively engaging, with newly listed homes significantly boosting active inventory, although overall inventory remains below pre-pandemic levels. It's still the best time to list your property!

The housing market is showing no signs of cooling down. With rising home prices, slightly declining mortgage rates, and steady sales, it’s a great time to consider your next move. By choosing a reliable real estate partner, you can fully capitalize on today’s market opportunities. Reach out to The RGroup today.

we have them *almost* every weekend!
