This week we are pleased to welcome our favorite economist, Steve Cook, with his economic update for first quarter 2017.

Cook joins us with a retrospective on 2016 as well as to what expect going into 2017. Here’s what he will be covering:

  • 2016: Median price set a new high and over 5.6 million units sold — a great year!
  • What to expect in 2017: is another good year on tap or is a market slowdown coming?
  • Will there be further increases in the interest rates or is it possible that rates may actually decline?
  • The stars are aligned for a slow down in the rental market — what it means for your residential sales business.
