Most of the last few buyer clients I have had are looking for homes in the range of $250,000 or less.
IT HAS BEEN HARD TO FIND THEM A HOME! Very hard!
I have been feeling a trend that things, at least in that price range, $250,000 or less, are getting harder and harder to find and that is the price range of the typical buyer.
I feel pretty confident in saying that the trend in that range right now would be considered a “Seller’s Market”.
Yep, after years of waiting out the horrible conditions that sellers have been facing, it is finally their time.
I took a listing recently that sold before it was even on the MLS. That is right, I was still working out the details of our listing agreement when, by word of mouth, a buyer came along and begged us to show them the home. I was reluctant because I wanted to give my seller time to fix it up. I got the price we wanted without the cost and time of the fix up. I couldn’t believe it. The buyer was desperate.
Please, if you have been wanting to sell but have been thinking you should wait until conditions improve, I am saying it is time; please give me a call. I need homes for my buyers. I would love to represent you and help you through the process.
For all you “Google” people that aren’t really “Google” people… at least that is what you tell me when I remind you on my CELL phone that I am on the “DO NOT CALL LIST” and that I have already asked to be removed from your list…

Please stop calling me to tell me how you can increase the traffic to my website.
So, let’s see how many of you are actually reading my blog… you always tell me you are …
I can’t believe it has been so long since my last post. It has been a crazy year. I have been reflecting on life; health, finances, relationships… all the things that present the greatest challenges to our lives and yet the greatest blessings as well. We too often take them for granted but when one or more get a little off-track, it doesn’t take long to realize how important they are to us and how essential it is to work on them.
I am grateful for good health. I am lucky that my challenges the last year were temporary and resolved but I have a new outlook on how important it is to take care of ourselves, eat right, exercise, etc.
I am grateful for my family and friends. I lost my father this summer. It has been a sad and reflective time since I lost my mother long ago. As I grow older, these bonds get more and more special to me. My siblings have grown closer since his passing and have an even greater place in my heart. My husband and children seem to be the essence of my existance. I do not know how I would survive without them.
I am facing the prospect of becoming a grandmother and get more and more excited as the time goes by… also worried as I think of my own baby facing the challenges of motherhood. Physically, getting older stinks! Yet, life gets sweeter as time goes by and I learn valuable life lessons that I was too young and ignorant to appreciate in my youth. I do not look forward to watching my body get more and more wrinkles with each passing day, but I have learned that there are still many opportunities ahead for laughter, learning, and LOVE.
