We have crossed the threshold into a new year, which fills me with wonderful excitement about what lies ahead. Eleanor Roosevelt said “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” My wish for us in the new year is that we dream boldly and marvel in the beautiful reality that we create in St. Louis.
Speaking of St. Louis, I have a few suggestions for us to get out in our community and make it a great start to the new year!
All the best. -Nate

P.S.
I am waiting on the end of the year numbers to complete my annual report. In the meantime, here is the latest Housing Report from November. It shows that pending sales are down about 7% from last year, and the inventory continues to be low as it is down about 22% from last year. If you have any questions about how this affects you, just let me know. I’d be happy to provide some more insight.
Let me know if there is anything that I can do for you. -Nate
