2018 Recap & What To Expect in the 2019 Housing Market

Thank you to our clients for the last year – 2018 was one of our greatest, and we can’t wait to see what 2019 continues to bring. Our listing agents are here to help you sell your home with confidence and our buyers agents are here to assist in all of your home buying needs.

Here is a quick recap again of 2018 and what’s ahead for 2019

RENOW v2The Eric Stewart Show moved to 8AM on WMAL, featuring two segments: Pointing You Home with Eric Stewart & the Seniors Solutions Real Estate Show. Our archived radio show is still available to listen to and our new episodes are all available on podcast on iHeartRadio, AudioBoom, Spotify, Google Play, and more!  The biggest thing is we began a brand new podcast – Real Estate NOW, also available to stream and download on your favorite podcast directory.  

We started a Speaking Series: Hour long classes of information given in a concise manner from Eric Stewart and Helen Flynn; featuring Aging in Your Best Place (Aging Well) sponsored by Seniors Solutions and, our flagship seminar, How to Sell for Top Dollar.  We had success with this, but, to better serve you, we will be changing formats. If you missed Aging in Your Best Place with Helen Flynn, stay tuned to our website. This year, Helen will be hosting a series of “round table discussions” based off of her book – Selling Your Home: A Guide for the Mature SellerIf you are looking for information on how to navigate home ownership as you age, or if you’re a family member interested in learning how to be a caregiver during a move, this would be an excellent classroom-style discussion for you. Contact us today to learn more: (800) 900-9104

A quick note about seminars: we will be hosting our Sell for Top Dollar seminars on select weekends in 2019 in both Maryland and Virginia!  Find out more on our Speaking Series page.

If you entered into our Holiday Contest, keep an eye on your phone! We’ll be notifying the winners NEXT WEEK!

Check out Our Team page and get to know some of our new hires and our seasoned agents.  We have experience that you won’t find anywhere else.  Ask a home related question in the comments, and if we can’t answer it, we’ll find a Clyde’s Gift Card for you!  

What are we expecting for this Spring market? It’s full speed ahead! If you’ve listened to our Real Estate Reports on WMAL 105.9FM/AM630 on Thursday and Friday, you’ll know that we aren’t worried about how the market will fare with the government shutdown and economic uncertainty. Why not? Take a listen to Pointing You Home on Sunday mornings at 8AM on WMAL where Eric discusses his thoughts on the market and tips you need to know in order to sell your home fast, for the most money, and be informed while doing so. Be sure to check out our Archive that we mentioned above to listen to past episodes. 

While we have many more things up our sleeves for 2019, it’s important to note that, at the end of it, all of these improvements are for the community and to better be able to serve you, our prospective clients and our past clients.  How did we help you in 2018? If we helped you buy or sell a home in the last year, please take the time to reach out on Zillow or Google and tell us how we did.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at any time if you have any questions about home buying, selling, and everything in between. The 2019 spring market is sure to be an interesting one!
