So as we start winding down our January, we're going to see our year over year comparisons start to change because of what happened this time last year with all of the interest rates increases. And we'll start seeing those as the months come come to pass. Now, we're still needing more listings, and we're coming up with some really interesting ideas for people who have a house to sell in this kind of a low inventory market, as well as if you're actually just downsizing and renting or you're leaving the area.
So look for some of the podcasts coming, not only this week, but [00:04:00] the weeks in the future, because we're going to start addressing a year of low inventory and what we've learned from that and how to, how to still move forward with your real estate dreams. If you have a house to sell and not sure where you're going.
So look for that coming up. We also have some great radio show episodes that are being filmed, recorded on our new radio home, the ACE. AM 1300. So lots and lots of good things happening. We're winding up our January pretty soon and would love for you to give me a call. Give me a text. I want to be your agent.
