To Our Friends, Neighbors and Clients,
As the market continues to settle and we draw closer to the winter months, we are happy to announce that homes are still appreciating! Homeowners have seen their property go up in value by almost 10% this year, which is still more significant than the average of 3.8% in the past.Despite a cooling market, we continue to see sellers trusting us to find qualified buyers to purchase their most valuable asset. Experts are not predicting a crash for the housing market, simply continued normalization and the Shorewest, REALTORS® team is looking forward to a strong end to 2022!
We continue to strive for excellence at Shorewest, and that extends to every part of our family of businesses. We are proud to report that one branch of our company, Heritage Title Services, received the Fidelity National Financial Excellence in Action Award, an amazing accomplishment for a dedicated team. To see that their skill and passion for their work is noticed is something that we are more than happy to celebrate.
Shorewest has continued to focus on our mission of giving back to the communities we serve, both through volunteering for charities and participating in community events. Throughout the summer, Shorewest team members could be found volunteering their time at festivals and parades in many local areas, and even sponsored “TosaFest,” a festival in Wauwatosa. On September 24th, Shorewest held one of our bi-annual e-recycling drives. People in the community were invited to bring their old electronics to be recycled responsibly and we collected roughly 9,000lbs in four hours. Not only did this event provide the Shorewest team the opportunity to give back to the community and keep electronics out of landfills, but we also got to speak with members of our community face to face. We are so happy to be meeting people again, both professionally and as residents and neighbors, and we look forward to participating in more community events in 2023.
As always, we would like to thank everyone who has placed their trust in the Shorewest family of businesses over the years. We would not be here if not for all the dedicated and loyal people who have come into our lives and we pledge to continue to be here for you as the market changes. If you need help buying, selling, or even starting a new career in real estate, Shorewest is ready to help you with every step along the way.
