The 20 Hottest Real Estate Markets In America For January 2018

As we near the end of the first month of the new year, it’s time to take a big step back—and to take stock of the situation in real estate markets across the country. Will we see our predictions for 2018 starting to come true already?

Have home buyers refreshed their determination to land a home this year? Are home prices finally slowing their reckless rise? Does the viselike grip on housing inventories in many top markets show signs of loosening up?

Well, it does seem like change is in the air: After peaking at $275,000 in summer 2017, the nationwide median home list price is expected to remain relatively steady at $269,000. That’s 8% higher than one year ago—but in early and mid-2017 we saw double-digit price increases.

Real Estate Storm Advice

Oh no, you are under contract and this storm just rolled through! There are a few things you can do to save you some headache later.

We had three home inspections scheduled this week, so we took time on Sunday to visit those properties and make sure that they had power. A proactive agent can save you time and hassle. If you have an inspection, make sure the power is on before everyone heads out there 🙂

Make SURE your agent does a final walk through with you prior to settlement. This should ALWAYS happen regardless, but make extra sure you do it if there was some crazy weather in between! The property should be just as you saw it during your home inspection. If anything has been damaged (in a normal situation) it should be repaired by the seller...
