Dear Reader, In our last edition of Cottages to Chateaus I wrote that we were seeing “a light at the end of the tunnel”. We are thrilled to report that Special Properties has had the highest volume in luxury sales since 2008 and there are signs of a strong market continuing in 2020. What do we attribute this to? 1. Prices have adjusted to very attractive

levels and interest rates are low. These two factors are great confidence boosters for buyers. What a perfect time to purchase a home!

2.

As the SALT (State & Local Tax) package was instituted in the beginning of 2018, both buyers and sellers now understand the effect on their income taxes, whereas before, it was an unknown entity and it created a hesitation which no longer exists. Visit our blog for an interview with The Real Deal on this topic!

3. There

is still a healthy inventory in each price range. In some price ranges, it is still a buyers’ market and in other cases it has switched to a sellers’ market.

Happy House-hunting!
