Syracuse Real Estate Forecast is GOOD!!
Hi Everyone! I am new to this whole blog scene but it sounded really interesting! This came about at a very important time for me. Yesterday, I attended the Central New York Economic Housing Forecast that was held at the NYS Fairgrounds in Syracuse.
This was a very informative seminar put on by the Greater Syracuse Assoc. of Realtors, the Central NY Home Builders/Remodelers Assoc. and the CNY Mortgage Bankers Assoc. that featured two national economists that were visiting Syracuse. If you missed it I hope to give you a brief overview of the information that they provided.
I was born and raised in the Finger Lakes area and have been a full time Realtor for about 17 years! I was pleasantly surprised with the statistics about our area. Here are just a few I will share with you….
Syracuse was named 1 of 4 “Healthy or Improving” real estate markets in the U.S. (in a National Press Release by the National Association of Realtors)
Syracuse ranked 5th out of the top 100 largest metropolitan to own real estate in the COUNTRY! Smart homes owners/investors buy their homes in Syracuse! (Fortune Magazine’s Investors Guide to 2007)
Syracuse ranked 17th of America’s 50 GREENEST cities! (Popular Science 2007)
Syracuse also ranked at the top in a number of other categories such as…
TOP CITY TO RAISE A CHILD (Parenting Magazine)
TOP COLLEGES (U.S. News & World Report)
TOP CITY FOR QUALITY OF LIFE & LOGISTICS (Expansion Mgt magazine 3/06)
There was so much to take in from this informative seminar. I am very grateful for the Syracuse Assoc. of Realtors for putting this on. Since this is my very first blog, I am going to try to make this short.
I felt it was important to mention that I feel the local media portrays the negative National picture of real estate which is NOT true of the local market in the Syracuse and surrounding areas! Our real estate market is GOOD! It is a great time to buy or sell real estate right now in our area.
With all that being said, I will say goodbye for now………but I would ask that you please take the time to contact me.
