The real estate market has come a long way since 2011, which is great news for homeowners!
Nearly 79% of homeowners with a mortgage in the US now have significant equity in their homes(defined as over 20%), according to the latestEquity Report. The challenge is that not every homeowner knows how much their home’s value has appreciated.

Nationally,CoreLogic forecasts that home values will increase another 5.0% by this time next year.
Bill Banfield,VP of Capital Markets at Quicken Loans, recentlyexplained the importance of knowing the conditions in your area,

"I work and invest in several markets in Southern California and just wish I could bring Sue to each one. I have worked with several agents over the years of investing, and Sue stands out head and shoulders above the rest. Seriously. She is so responsive, so professional, so thorough and so capable - she is a diamond. I have seen her accomplish negotiations that were very involved and complex and she did it with ease. She tells it like it is, with a positive can-do attitude and I just can't thank her enough. She works with a great team as well. I knew we were in good hands with Sue and the latest sale we accomplished in three weeks. I just can't recommend her highly enough. When you work with Sue you know you are working with someone who has your best interests in mind, and with someone who is going to go the extra mile and make every effort necessary. If you are in her market area, you must give her a chance. You won't regret it! Thanks Sue! Can't wait for the next transaction together."
