Real Estate Panelist Quotes

We surveyed our audience of real estate industry participants to understand where they focus their efforts now and how satisfied they are with the current market.

“I believe a lot of the interest rate increases could have been avoided if the Fed had actually controlled the money supply”

“It is a good market for sellers and it was nice working with sellers as they are quite pleased. For buyers, on the other hand, it is very stressful to find a home and they often feel they are paying way more for a home they could’ve picked up a couple of years ago for a fraction of the price”

“The market has been good for me this past couple of months. I have sold more houses than I ever had”

“First prices were too high and now they are going to go too low.”
