    Dear Friend,
    The New Year is less than a month away; however, the best time to set goals for 2019 is now. If you’re like many people, you may wish to create goals pertaining to your finances, whether you wish to keep more of what you earn or achieve financial freedom once and for all.
    The excitement of the New Year prompts us to set ambitious goals; however, a month or two into the year, our goals have often long been forgotten. The information I’m sending this month is intended to encourage you to set realistic financial goals that you’re invested in achieving. From identifying what you truly want to setting SMART goals and creating a reasonable action plan, these tips will help you end 2019 even more financially fit than you are now.
    The real estate market in the Bay Area continues to soften. The sales price to list price ratio in Contra Costa County is at its second lowest level since January 2017.
