HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY 2022
“We must, indeed, all hang together or, most assuredly, we shall all hang separately.” - Ben Franklin.
My esteemed colleagues, clients and dear friends,
Happy 4th of July Weekend! We have a lot of content in this edition of our newsletter so I am going to keep this intro fairly short. As we gather this weekend and celebrate our country’s freedom from the tyrannical rule of England, I think its important to reflect on how far we have come since that glorious day 2951 months ago.
To me, July 4th is the ultimate expression of setting aside time with our friends and families, BBQ’s, flip flops and sharing in laughs and spirits to rejoice the long days and the warm weather. I received a ton of phone calls and emails after our last newsletter. I really appreciate the feedback, your comments and the many of your jokes. But many of you expressed some fear due to this country and the seemingly unrest in many sectors of it.
Our Market -The real estate market is leveling, and we are experiencing mixed signals within it. To me, the low inventory is a reflection of people feeling the safest investment is in their families and the memories they are creating right now. Rather than trying to make a buck in these settling times.
For our Buyers – Let’s be honest, 6% mortgage rates sucks! Yep… I said it! Remember that “your dream home does not have to be your forever loan.” We have ways of negotiating lower interest rates and closing costs with seller credits. We are seeing sellers get a bit more flexible on price and can now negotiate terms in a way that we haven’t been able to in the past 2.5 years.
For our Sellers – The market is at an all time high, it is changing with clients now wanting to “hold off” or “wait” for good inventory, lower prices, better deals, and realistic sellers that want to negotiate. This can still work in your favor.
Have a lovely week my friends. My son and I are off to Whistler till the 10th. You can follow our adventures on Instagram @davidgemme. We are taking a grand trip through the Canadian Rockies with our mountain bikes and the Gemme Group van.
If you need anything real estate related, my team is here for you. Simply call or text me directly at 530.277.8881. “We welcome the opportunity of helping you or someone you love.”
