July 2022 - Jean-Luc Andriot - Animated Video for Jean-Luc Andriot blog 072522

Time isn’t always on your side, especially if you’re trying to time the real estate market.

Some homeowners postponed selling while they waited for prices to hit their peak. Here’s why you shouldn’t wait any longer:

Nine out of 10 people partner with a real estate agent to sell their home.
