April 3, 2017

With April 1st marking the end Q1 2017, many developers and investors are reflecting on the results from the first three months of the year. After a lackluster 2016 widely attributed to the contentious national election, many industry professionals were predicting a positive increase in luxury home sales. For communities targeting Florida’s winter residents, high season typically begins on January 15th and runs through mid April. This year, President Trump settled into the White House and quickly became a frequent visitor to South Florida. Besides having a new administration in place in Washington, and the new Winter White House established on Palm Beach – what changes did the real estate market experience in Q1? 1. Stock Market Surges – In… Read more »

An Industry Update From The Fall ULI Conference

November 8, 2016

Having recently attended the 2016 Urban Land Institute conference in Dallas, Texas, we learned some very interesting trends that were pertinent to real estate developers as we move into the 2017 season. As we enter the 4th Quarter of 2016, average real estate sales pace is down approximately 15-20%. This was surprising, as most people expected 2016 to be better than 2015. The cause of the slow down is a combination of the stock market collapse at the beginning of the year, the unusually negative election cycle, the resulting uncertainty for the future. This impacts government sectors, the financial landscape as well as international issues related to ISIS and BREXIT. There is generally a lack of urgency in the market,… Read more »

Could Millennial Homeownership Be on The Rise?

September 27, 2016
Could Millennial Homeownership Be on The Rise?

A recent Fannie Mae report analyzed U.S. Census data of 20- to 33-year-olds from 2006 to 2014. It followed different age groups through the boom (2006–08), bust (2008–12), and recovery years (2012–14). The fear of commitment of buying a home with a partner could be one of the reasons many younger folks don’t own the roof over their heads—along with rising prices, high student debt, and hard-to-get credit. As a digital marketing agency knowing who to target and when is crucial to campaign success, being able to narrow down and be ultra-specific about demographics and branding is why we are a leading industry agency. Cotton & Company has lived through the down-turn and survived. We understand real estate and how it… Read more »

5 Reasons Why Hiring A Digital Advertising Agency with Real Estate Experience Will Benefit You

Digital Marketing is increasingly responsible for more and more. More productivity, more effectiveness, more leads, more sales, etc. Real Estate Marketing teams are feeling strapped with limited resources and smaller budgets. If you keep your entire marketing strategy in-house, you could wind up spending your entire budget on payroll and still not have all of the skill sets needed, on the other hand, if you hire a real estate advertising agency, quality and control might become concerns. With real estate being one of the last industries to jump onto the digital advertising band wagon, few marketing agencies have the strategic experience to put today’s technology to work for selling homes. Cotton & Company combines 30 years of luxury real estate… Read more »

Which Candidate is Better For The Housing Market?

September 12, 2016

A new poll commissioned by the National Association of Home Builders to gauge public sentiment on the value of homeownership and government programs that encourage homeownership and housing production concluded that an overwhelming four-out-of-five Americans believe that owning a home is a good investment. With the political season shifting into high gear from a year of already intense, in your face advertising, we can safely say that the tensions have risen when it comes to the the future of our country. Looking at past history, the Presidential election and the voters’ attitudes towards it often has an impact on consumer spending habits. The low consumer confidence has the developers feeling the pinch. With that being said, out of a nationwide… Read more »
