RESIDE 2019 WINTER / 2020 SPRING EDITION ~ Harbor Sotheby’s International Realty

As we welcome the new season in northern Michigan we reflect back on the great opportunities of 2019. We would like to recognize those who we have assisted in purchasing a home and to those who listed their home with us. We would like to say thank you for the trust and responsibility you bestowed upon us. As we move out of 2019 and into a new year, we also reflect on the overall state of the market in northern Michigan. As ambassadors of the real estate market, we are always asked, “How’s the real estate market?” While that answer may vary from person to person, I think the overall tone is that homes are selling and there is an overwhelming
interest in northern Michigan real estate. We have seen a consistent transition from 2018 into 2019 and we expect that to continue into 2020.
