“January showed the same strong housing numbers in our market that we’ve seen most of last year,” stated GHAR CEO, Holly Callanan. “The continued demand is a good sign for those looking to sell. Involving a Realtor early in the process is an important first step,” she said.

In the national outlook, Lawrence Yun, National Association of REALTORS® chief economist, stated: "Home sales rose in December, and for 2020 as a whole, we saw sales perform at their highest levels since 2006, despite the pandemic. What's even better is that this momentum is likely to carry into the new year, with more buyers expected to enter the market."
