Market Minute

The economic waters are murky and so far in 2023 it isn’t getting any clearer. Stocks are volatile, we have war in the Ukraine and interest rates, combined with affordability, have everyone in “wait and see” mode.

Except it’s NOT everyone. Seeing opportunity, some are stepping solidly into growth mode. Apple announced significant expansion to their NW Austin campus, Samsung started the construction of their $17 billion semiconductor manufacturing campus in Taylor and Tesla filed for a $700M expansion of their Gigafactory,

Why do these tech giants feel comfortable stepping on the gas pedal? It’s the Central Texas economy! We are uniquely positioned in Austin and the surrounding areas to weather financial turbulence and to rebound quickly!

If you are in a bunker mentality, you could be missing your chance!  

There is a very unique opportunity in today’s residential market. Prices have corrected, interest rates are lower at 6.07% (30 yr fixed) AND you have almost NO buyer competition! This spells LEVERAGE, but it’s not likely to last! 

It’s time to evaluate you residential strategy! Let’s talk about your next MOVE! 📱 Courtney 512-809-5495
