FIRST QUARTER 2019: The Wild Ride & What’s Next

FIRST QUARTER 2019: The Wild Ride & What’s Next

Greetings!

The first quarter of 2019 was interesting to say the least! Interest rates lowered sharply, the stock market
surged, and a rush of IPO money is predicted throughout the year. See below for the figures and details on how all these elements shaped Q1.

As always, If you have questions about a specific neighborhood, property or anything real estate, let me know!

Goodbye Gorgeous Tree

At the corner of Magellan and Dorantes, we have been watching this gorgeous tree get cut down. Tree remover estimated it to be 120 years old. From the permits on the tree, it sounds like not everyone wanted the homeowner to cut it down. Not sure what the homeowner has planned, but hopefully some other trees will be planted in its place.
