THE BOTTOM LINE

So what do these numbers mean?

All are indicators of a strong market that is moving in a positive direction.

Additionally, the end of 2017 was far busier than any previous years in recent memory. The combination of these two factors leads us to believe we will see a very strong winter market, making it an excellent time to buy or sell to beat the spring rush.
