The final sales for 2012 have been tallied at the Ebby Halliday Companies, and the results are impressive.
Associates of the Ebby Halliday Companies, which includes Ebby Halliday Realtors and Dave Perry-Miller & Associates, closed $4.8 billion in real estate sales in 2012. That marks the second-highest annual sales ever for the company.
Since 2000, the Ebby Halliday Companies have averaged more than $4 billion in sales per year, despite the real estate downturn of the mid-2000s.
“That kind of consistently exceptional performance reflects the our associates’ true professionalism, hard work and dedication to providing exemplary service to their clients that is deeply appreciated by both the company’s management and our clients,” says Mary Frances Burleson, president and CEO of the Ebby Halliday Companies. “As good as 2012 was, 2013 may be even better.”
Burleson says many real estate experts are very positive in their projections for 2013, and expect that:
• Mortgage rates will remain near record lows, at least through the first half of 2013, and then possibly rise to about 4% by year end.
• Property values are expected to rise by 2- to 3% during 2013.
• New household formation should increase by approximately 1 million nationwide, and housing starts are expected to rise to an annual rate of about 1 million per year.
• Foreclosure rates are expected to continue to fall throughout the year.
“Together, these are strong indicators of an active, vibrant and healthy real estate market in 2013,” Burleson says. “If you are considering listing your home, call an Ebby Halliday or Dave Perry-Miller sales associate to learn more about the real estate market in your particular neighborhood.”
