21st Century Home Price Changes

California’s Economic and Demographic Numbers

Real estate is more of a people business than a property sale business. Without enough people in a specific region in need of homes to purchase or lease, there wouldn’t be a need for real estate agents and brokers. Additionally, licensed agents need to first build a solid and positive rapport with their new prospects.
