Looking back, it is clear that 2017 was another very strong year for the residential market. Driven by, among other things, low interest rates, strong demand and a continued inventory shortage, average home values increased by over 6% nationally in 2017 (well above 3% “normal” growth) with values rising each month of the year according to the S&P Corelogic Case-Shiller National Home Price NSA Index.

However, there was also reason to be cautious, due to the recent U.S. election of President Trump, the uncertainties of his policies and the change of government.Mon, 22 Jan 2018 00:00:00 -0800https://www.coxcastle.com/news-and-publications/2018/retail-development---riding-the-tail-windsRetail Development - Riding the Tail WindsAs calendar year 2017 approached, many in the retail development industry felt a sense of tempered optimism, and those feelings appear to have borne out.
