Interest Rates Are on the Minds of Consumers in Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices’ Latest Homeowner Sentiment Survey

Overall favorability toward residential real estate holds steady ahead of the Federal Reserve’s December meeting; Millennials, the most optimistic group surveyed, look beyond starter houses to dream homes

Current and prospective homeowners – particularly Millennials — remain optimistic about the state of the U.S. real estate market yet they expressed concern over the prospects of rising interest rates in Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices’ latest Homeowner Sentiment Survey released today by Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Gallo Realty.

Overall, 66% of current homeowners and 63% of prospective homeowners view the U.S. real estate market favorably – a sentiment that has remained steady throughout 2016. Notably, Millennials (defined in the survey as people ages 18-34) were the most optimistic generation, with 74% reporting a favorable view, representing a 15-percentage point jump since the same time last year. Two-thirds of Gen-Xers (ages 35-50) also expressed a favorable view – an 8-percentage point increase from last year.

Beau Biden Foundation Summer Youth Program Tips

There are still a few months left before school lets out, but many parents are already researching summer camps and youth programs for their children. Insuring your child is safe at camp is a major issue for many parents and caretakers. Every parent wants their child to enjoy the summer and participate in fun and constructive activities, but before you select a camp, it’s important to make sure you find out what safety protocols are in place to protect your child.

It is important to make sure the summer program you choose completes current background checks on counselors and staff. We know that often child predators seek employment that includes direct contact with children. Background checks are a critical tool for ensuring children are safe at summer camp.

Georgetown has a long history spanning back to 1791 when the county seat moved there from Lewes, which was criticized for being too far from western Delaware. Originally, Georgetown was laid out in a large square, but that was quickly changed to the circle we all associate with Georgetown with the historic Georgetown Circle at the center.
