No question interest rates will rise.

I would like to see buyers jump on the bandwagon early before they rise even further. I am not sure they will.

I'd like to see more inventory... not hopeful. With rising home prices and interest rates, more people will be priced out of the market, especially entry level buyers.

It is predicted (by the City Assessor in  Minot) that we will see a lot more building permits issued this year for the remodeling of homes. The trend I'd like to see is for Buyers to beat a path to my door for the custom homes my builders make in the developments I represent Kathryn Messina

To see:

More new construction which will free the log jam in the resell market.

LIKE TO SEE:

1. Agent willing to collaborate to create a marketing value that benefits the buyer, seller and agent.

2. Fewer spectator agents. What I mean is agents who will take action to fix what is not working for them and stop surrendering to the marketing companies.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN?

More nonsense that sounds like 'raise the barriers to entry," 'we got train'n,' and 'ethics of the club."  More of the same with the added dimension of more 'hourly' broker business models.

I'd love to see less government interference in the market and the industry.  Given that I live in California and that nationally the DOJ is looking into forcing everyone to share their listing data with everyone, this isn't going to happen.

I think we'll see interest rates rise, millennials finally making a purchase (if they can find something), and more people getting into the business because think its a good time. I'd like to see builder building more reasonable homes price wise for millennials and empty nesters. They're missing the mark by building huge homes. I'd like to see more inventory. I'd like to see more regulations on new agents.

Well more inventory would be great. My rural area is starting to see what a lot of other areas have the country have for a while. I was showing a lot of houses over the weekend. Even as we were looking at a house...multiple offers would come in. 

Inventory is very low as well.
