"2014 Vs. 2013"
So far this year has a completely different feel from last year. In 2013 we had a decent start with an incredible Spring market, around mid March the floodgates really opened. Then in mid June interest rates went from 3.250% to 4.5% overnight and things came to a grinding halt over the summer. Things picked back up in October and we had a decent end to the year. This year things have started slower than expected, it is starting to pick up but we have not seen that big spring surge. It will be interesting to see how things unfold over the next 3-4 weeks. Did we start slow because of the weather and the spring surge arrives or is it going to be a little slower this year than predicted? If things hit hard in the next couple of weeks it could still be that huge year that was predicted. Nothing in the economic news suggest a steep change in the interest rates this year so at worst we will stay consistent for the rest of the year. My money is still on the big surge coming...
