Small Signs of Change: Is There a Light at the End of the Seller's Market Tunnel?
Just about all of real estate's measurables have been pointing in seller's favor for the past year. Inventory hit record lows. Home prices hit record highs. Buyer demand has been off the charts, fueled by shifting priorities during the pandemic and record low interest rates. But with the midway point of 2021 in the rearview mirror, there are signs of a light at the end of the tunnel. On this week's Walkthrough, HomeLight's Caroline Feeney is here to share data from our Summer 2021 Top Agent Insights Survey. And three top agents from across the country join us to share stories from the real estate trenches -- and the small signs they're seeing that the market might be changing.

Because when you tell the right story at the right time, people will remember you, like you, and want to do business with you.

If you can take even a few of these tips and work them in right away, your business will be better for it. Great job!
