The New Year is here- welcome to 2019!

Our latest RealEstateSINY.com Facebook live video tackled the topic of real estate market changes we anticipate in the coming years, some of which we will be hopefully seeing soon.

We talk about the limitations faced by national value platforms, and some ways we expect the web to change in order to better suit sellers.

Could we potentially be seeing advancements in movement sensors that allow a buyer to virtually tour a property via video drone?

"The real estate market is changing."

It's a phrase we have been uttering for many months now, drawing in leading indicators to do so. But what does that mean for a seller? A homeowner who is unsure what to do when the wisdom learned over the past few years are suddenly invalid because everything is in a state of flux?

That's the topic of our latest live video discussion with PR Director Hannah Jay and RealEstateSINY.com Broker/Co-Owner Anthony Licciardello. This talk is designed for either someone getting ready to sell in a changing market, or somebody who has already struggled to generate interest in their home because the market is changing too fast to keep up.

On the whole, US homeowners still routinely prefer detached homes. 82%, in fact, according to the US Census Bureau in 2015. Just 5.5% of US homeowners live in townhomes. But this is another story in metropolitan areas like New York.

Welcome to 2019! It's hard to believe we just finished off another year. Our year covering real estate and local events in Staten Island has taught us a few things, and we cover the past month and year in January's market discussion here via Facebook Live!
