Donate to your Favorite Charity with TAGG (Together a Greater Good)

I believe most people are looking to be charitable most of the time.  They really want to give to the less fortunate, but don’t want the hassle of going through the process of donating.  TAGG has made donating to your favorite charity easy and convenient.  Just download the TAGG mobile app from the App Store or Google and pick out your favorite charity.  Every time you shop at a TAGG vendor you just take a picture of the receipt and “tag” your purchase.  The business will donate 5% of the purchase price to the charity YOU choose.  How easy it that?

You can visit http://www.togetheragreatergood.com/ to learn more about TAGG.  Their mission is: “We connect people, businesses and causes for mutual benefit”

Here’s a little more about TAGG from their website: When TAGG was created, we were thinking with both our heads and our hearts. Our heads were telling us there has to be a better way to support schools, teams and nonprofits. Our hearts were telling us we want to wake up every day knowing we are helping people. Sometimes the results are quick and easy to see, like kids being able to go to campOthers will require years of support, like finding cures for diseases or rebuilding communities. We want to be part of it all! Thanks to our charitably-minded business partners, we enable everyone to take part – without spending an extra dime!

Be sure to download and start “TAGGing” your purchases today!

2017 State of the Omaha Real Estate Market

The Housing Market Remains Strong

The Omaha Real Estate Market is in a precarious position.  From the graphic below you can see that inventory is way down (23% from Jan 2016), but volume remains steady.  That means prices have increased dramatically even though there are fewer sales.  Its great to see the prices rise so steadily, but when is the market going to be affected by the low inventory? Here is my 2017 State of the Omaha Real Estate Market

January 2017 Stats

January 2017 Stats

2017 should be another record year.  While interest rates will climb a little, we are still way below the historical average.  We are also seeing more federal and state subsidies which will help.  However, we are facing a near crisis for affordable housing.  70% of the sales are below $250,000, but very few builders are building houses below $300,000.  That price gap will have to be addressed at some point or the market will react negatively.

One thing remains, the American dream of home ownership and a positive attitude towards out economy.  I’m confident we will find a solution.  The volatility of the market means it is necessary to hire a professional to look out for your interests.  I always recommend a Realtor when buying, selling, or investing in real estate.  If we can help, please call Team Bober and we will tackle the market for you!
