“Oh Wow, Oh Wow” were the famous last words of Steve Jobs at Apple and that is exactly the verbiage that describes this January 2016. It is so busy considering its an election year. This real estate business is a lively and an exciting ride for those of us in the business. I feel passionate about the benefits of knowing and sharing the numbers so here you go with some fresh data and information compiled by your’s “truly”.

My thoughts are this…This maybe an election year, but this year of 21016 will probably be the prolonged beginning of the next real estate boom which should peak around 2020. Are you invested properly”
