In the recent months, the real estate market has begun to shift. What does that mean for you as a buyer? Should you wait for rates to go back down? Should you wait for house prices to drop? Here is what we are seeing in this market shift and why it is a good time to buy. 

1. Housing prices are starting to balance

You may have noticed some homes sitting on the market longer than 48 hours or sellers are dropping their prices in order to sell. This does not mean that the value of the home is decreasing. It means that we have reached the peak of this crazy, rapidly climbing market. Over the past few years, housing prices have increased faster than we've ever seen before.

We are half way through the year 2022 and it has already proven to be one for the books in real estate. We have continued to see multiple offers with competitive bids including above asking prices and little to no contingencies. However, is all of that about to change?

Mother’s Day is a special day where we get to show our moms just how much they mean to us. Finding the perfect gift can sometimes prove to be difficult.

Thankfully, we live in a city full of local shops and experiences that can help! From a traditional bouquet of flowers to a special day of shopping, Chattanooga offers something for every mom to make sure her day is truly the best.

For the traditional mom:

Put a bit of a spin on the flowers you give your mom this year! Jodi Jardin’s Flower Shop is not your average flower shop. It is truly an experience to enter under an archway of beautiful blooms and into a garden filled…
