Know Your Nest

National home prices increased by 5.4% since this time last year. Over that same time period, interest rates remained near historic lows, allowing many buyers to enter the market and lock in low rates. Team Nest Builder knows that, as a home seller, you’re probably most concerned about ‘short-term price’ – where home values are headed over the next six months.

Check. Dollar store decorations? You betcha. Hitting up the free local trick-or-treating events? You can bet all of your Fun Size M&Ms ...
