As 2013 draws to a close, we have a lot to look forward to in 2014:
- A continuing economic recovery looks to be steered by a “resurgent housing sector.”
- Home style trends are going to take a bold step forward.
- The real estate market could be dominated by purchase money lending for the first time in 14 years.
- Mortgage rates are likely to continue rising — perhaps higher than 5 percent — but that may not be the worst thing in the world.
- Some major markets that haven’t hit their stride in home-price growth yet could get there in 2014.
But on this last day of 2013, we’d like to look back on the year that was. It was a year full of big news, big wins, and great advice. We looked through analytics from REALTOR® Magazine to see which of our online stories got the most clicks this year, and we were a little surprised at some of the most popular ones. We’re proud to have brought you some useful information for your business over the past year.
