By Alyssa Morrison |

You may have read headlines about our shifting market: interest rates are up and home sales are down. While that’s true, that simple interpretation of our real estate market is more nuanced, and there are advantages to both sides of a real estate transaction, as long as you have the right real estate advisor by your side. In our quarterly reports, we dig into the numbers to help you decipher what they may mean for achieving your real estate goals. These reports are just the start. A conversation with your global real estate advisor can help you put these numbers in context and what they mean as you approach your real estate goals for 2022, 2023, and beyond.
