Top Reasons to Look Forward to 2013

Top Reasons to Look Forward to 2013 

With the New Year upon us, it always makes for a good time to reflect on the past year and to think ahead into the future – what lies in store for 2013? Courtesy of REALTOR® Magazine’s online news, here are the top 13 reasons to look forward to 2013:

  • There’s greater optimism about increasing home values
  • More new households are forming
  • Home shoppers are feeling a greater sense of urgency
  • Home ownership remains a goal of members of the Millennial generation
  • Foreclosure starts are falling to pre-housing-bust levels
  • Interest rates should remain low through next year’s selling season
  • Loan demand for home purchases is climbing
  • More Americans say it’s a good time to sell
  • The number of improving housing markets is going up
  • Job creation is expected to provide a much-needed boost to the commercial sector
  • Housing starts are picking up as builder confidence increases
  • As housing values rise and equity returns, fewer home owners are underwater
  • Real Estate is contributing to an overall economic recovery

“That’s not to say there aren’t challenges. Lending remains tight, there’s a large foreclosure backlog, and regulatory challenges and the fiscal cliff loom ahead. But on balance, real estate appears to have a bright future in 2013.”

At RE/MAX Professionals, we are grateful for the awesome agents and staff who are a part of our family. We look forward to another year of growth and prosperity for all our affiliates – and continuing to build a thriving real estate company that is the top choice for REALTORS and consumers! Happy New Year!

RE/MAX Professionals Food Drive

RE/MAX Professionals Food Drive 

This year, RE/MAX Professionals will be hosting a food drive for St. Mary’s Food Bank. The drive started this week on Monday, December 10th and will run through Friday, December 21st.

As the oldest food bank in the world, St. Mary’s distributes millions of pounds of food to the hungry every year…more than 74 million pounds last year alone! In Arizona alone, St. Mary’s Food Bank serves nearly 2 million people.

  • 1 in 4 Arizona children (338,000) live in poverty, 37 percent are under five
  • 1 in 7 Arizona seniors live in poverty
  • 1 in 5 Arizonians (1.4 million) live in poverty
  • Arizona is the second highest in the nation with a 37 percent increase from 2010 to 2011

RE/MAX Professionals will be accepting food at each of our six office locations from December 10th until December 21st or you can bring your donations to the following company events:

  • RE/MAX Professionals Holiday Party: Wednesday, December 12th
  • RE/MAX Professionals Monthly Office Meeting: Tuesday, December 18th

St. Mary’s Food Bank also accepts cash donations. For every $1.00 collection, St. Mary’s can provide seven meals. Just think that a small donation of $25.00 would feed approximately 175 people! (Please note, checks should be made out to St. Mary’s Food Bank.)

Here is a list of items St. Mary’s Food Bank needs:
Beans (canned or dried)
Canned fruits, veggies
Canned soup, stews, chili
Tuna, other canned or vacuumed packed meats
Pastas, rice
Mac & Cheese
Cereal
Juice
Peanut Butter
Diapers (children and adults)
Any other NON-PERISHABLE items you can think (no glass please)

If you have any questions, please contact the food drive committee leader, Tiger Myers at 602-501-8443 or via email at AZTigers57@gmail.com. RE/MAX Professionals greatly appreciates your support and contributions to this very important organization!
