What’s Ahead for Real Estate in the Carolinas in 2019? | Nancy Braun

As we begin another year, everyone wants to know: “Where is the Carolinas housing market headed in 2019?”

It’s not only buyers, sellers, and homeowners who are impacted. The real estate market plays an integral role in the overall U.S. economy.  Fortunately, key indicators point toward a stable housing market in 2019 with signs of modest growth.
