The Brown Realty Group is honored to announce that both Rick Brown and Brenda Booth-Brown have each been recipients of the prestigious “Golden Bear Award” which recognizes individual sales performance for 2013 by the Bonita-Estero Area Board of Realtors. This recognition is given to a very elite group of Realtors achieving superior sales volume in 2013.
The Brown Realty Group is off to an astonishing start in 2014! As of the writing of this newsletter, we have already closed in excess of $1.1 Mil in sales and have pending more than $1.2 Mil in sales in the first 30 days of the year.
Of course, the Brown Realty Group certainly understands that the Estero-to-Naples corridor does not necessarily follow the national trend. For example, in the middle of the recession, our real estate market realized higher foreclosure rates than most of the rest of the country. Conversely, as the economy and housing market improves, our new housing starts and sales will also outpace most of the rest of the country. In our Downing-Frye Realty office, we had 246 pending sales for the first 23 days of January, 2013 that amounted to $86 Mil in pending sales volume. For the first 23 days of January 2014, in our Downing-Frye office, we have had 284 pending sales, in excess of $135 Mil in sales volume. That is a 15% increase in pending sales and a 56% increase in pending sales volume. That’s amazing!!
As mentioned earlier in the newsletter, those percentage increases are consistent with how the Brown Realty Group has started 2014. The inventory of homes for sale is very low and the inventory for The Brown Realty Group is also low. This metric bodes well for the sellers that have their homes on the market.
If you are considering the sale of your home, NOW is the time to allow The Brown Realty Group the opportunity to assist you in pricing, marketing and selling your home.
