I am still thrilled and brimming with so much inspiration, coming from the Mega Camp for Keller Williams with Executive Chairman Gary Keller in Texas last week!
As a leading annual real estate training conference for agents, it has been filled with invaluable insights as we had a deep dive into the mechanics of the economy and the housing market today. Not to mention, we had so much fun developing new connections. Nothing beats the feeling of being alongside game changers in the industry.
Here's one discussion that highly impacted me: The market is swinging in the favor of agents who are skills-based. We’ve been hearing about the market shifting, which is much different than past cycles which are easier to read. This is why, now, more than ever, it all boils down to the knowledge and expertise of agents whom you will choose to partner with. Top real estate agents tackle tough times by staying on top of the statistics, and by being creative and versatile in implementing (even revising) out-of-the-box strategies as they push forward.
In the past 12 months, 154 lakefront homes in Kosciusko County have been sold—showing a decline of -27.7% compared to 213 sold homes last year. Sold channel homes also dipped slightly by -2.5%, from 121 sold units in the previous year to 118 this year.
We use these figures as guide but never let our performance dwindle because of it. In fact, it fuels us to work even harder. The RGroup team is actually very busy at the moment with buyers still waiting in line, and sellers still eager to sell their homes.
Some time frames may offer more advantages, but like in life, the perfect time in everything is the moment we act and commit to our goals. NOW is always an ideal time.
If you’re thinking of listing even next April, you should schedule your listing photos NOW. Houses look best in summertime with full leaves, and green grass. Thinking of selling? NOW is always a great time to consult, learn more about the market, and develop top caliber strategies.
As one of the top producing teams locally and nationally, you can be assured of our unwavering commitment to help you get your desired outcome, no matter what. Don't hesitate to reach out to us.
Kosciusko County Market Stats The months supply of inventory, and inventory of homes for sale showed significant increases of 12.5% and 6.5%, respectively compared to July of last year—signaling a great time for buyers to pick out from more options. Sellers can still maximize price gains with 0.8% increase on the original list price received. However, new listings and closed sales are down by -23.5% and -33.7%, respectively.

Rock the Dock The final Rock the Dock on Chapman Lake has been beyond amazing! We enjoyed hanging out on the boat at the sand bar listening to some great music from Beez and the Rocker! With a mission to help showcasing our local lakes and talent, The RGroup helped sponsor this event series with Classic Hits 107.3 WRSW. Socks Marina also partnered with us by donating a boat for the band. It was a great way to enjoy the summer!
