What’s more, every sales region in the country reported both month-over-month and year-over-year decreases. The drop in home sales was likely due to mortgage rates rising to 6% in early June.

Featured Testimonial

by Jimmy & Gail

Our broker, Lisa, was recommended by an acquaintance. We had already been talking to another broker when we were given Lisa Wenzel’s info. I contacted her and had a great conversation about what we were looking for. Within 48 hours I had talked to her a few times about what we needed and how critical it was. She already had houses for us to check out and was willing to do it for us as we were 3 states away. I still hadn’t heard back from the first broker I had contacted! Needless to say, Lisa was our broker from that moment on due to her diligence and beautiful personality. She genuinely cares about you and what you need. She is like a dog with a bone too, will not give up on you no matter how dire the situation may seem to a home buyer. Top marks from the Youngs!
