2020 is upon us! My wife and I joke – the time between Labor Day and now just flies by – aided of course by Christmas decorations festooning the stores before Halloween. But I digress. By all accounts 2019 was an amazing year! As the year dawned – I was a bit concerned about the trade tiff with China, downward pressure on our economy and the upward push on interest rates. Would there be a slowdown? Well, we certainly appeared to be heading that direction until mid year when BOOM! Interest rates took a tumble and activity skyrocketed. There was a huge uptick in buying and many commercial offices experienced their best months ever – I know our office did. The tepid housing market even caught fire as buyers sensed – now is the time to act!
