There is slightly less demand for homes from buyers, so naturally the prices will go down.

Hip - What Does Our Name Mean?

Today we want to give you an inside scoop into what the name “Hip Realty Group” means. The name was born when Tammie Slay thought of the core values that she held in the highest regard.
