Fun Fact Friday ๐Ÿฟ 1/12/2024

Hey Friends,
I’ve got 6 fun facts and my weekly quote to share with you today.

Blessings,
Andrew

Fun Fact 1:
The consumer price index is cumulatively up 19% since the start of 2020. (Under normal conditions where the Fed meets their inflation target of 2% per year, it would instead be up by approximately 8% since then.) According to Lyn, “this permanently higher plateau in prices is why, although prices are cooling down in rate of change terms, inflation still feels high for a lot of people”.

Commentary: There are a total of 1,749 agents in these 20 brokerages alone, not to mention the other thousands in our community. ย The job of a Realtor is competitive. I say bring it on. ย (I’m proud of the next fun facts.)


Fun Fact 4:
Last year, The Platinum Group, Realtors averaged 14.7 transactions per agent, almost doubling the next best.
