This morning’s Residential Housing Market Outlook with NAR’s Dr. Lawrence Yun and Dr. Lisa Sturtevant was especially enlightening. These two great presenters explained the implications of the national housing and economic data. Their understanding of what the trends mean leads to useful strategies for REALTORS®. Way beyond regurgitation of numbers and graphs — they have an uncanny ability to break down the complexities of forces and factors that directly affect our industry.
