I just reviewed the NAR Slide show that is to accompany the online Town Hall today. I'd have to say I am not excited. I do not think from what I saw that NAR knows what it is. It looks as if it is trying to be all things to all people (REALTORS® and consumers). I want NAR to support me, a real e...

I recently posted this to my blog that goes out to my clients and customers. It represents some degree of frustration, but it also asks the question we all have: When? "It will happen, won’t it? You know what I mean. The real estate market in Sonoita, Elgin and Patagonia will begin to act more no...

Good Ol Phil predicted yesterday that winter was over. Well, in case he didn't look outside today, it is still very much winter in PA as well as here in Southern AZ. I mean, 37º at mid-day! Sure there is not a cloud in the sky, but the north wind does blow and my guess is the windchill is solid i...

I have seen a measurable increase in inquiries, not clicks, coming through the internet in the past couple of weeks.

There is a posting today by a Keller Williams agent in Portland, OR about how she declined to take a land listing from an unrealistic seller. She should be congratulated many times over! There is a business model being followed by many agents in my community, and elsewhere I assume, that says tak...

No matter how you look at the two main indicators of our market, unit sales or dollar volume, this is a better year than last for sure. During the first quarter of 2009, 4 homes changed hands with a dollar value of $1,008,900. This year 10 homes changed hands at a combined value of $2,412,400. (...

The first two months of 2010 - in a nutshell I have just pulled the sales information for the first two months of this year from the Tucson Multiple Listing Service. It's not all that bad, but it's not great - yet. During this time, there were 9 sales: 3 land sales and 6 home sales. The land sal...

The following link takes you to an article that appeared in the Wall Street Journal about global warming. It is yet another explanation, but perhaps more plausible. http://ow.ly/12gus The national real estate markets, save for commercial, are generally looking very positive. Financing is still an...

It's 12/27/2009. Twenty-Ten is just hours away. I'm well into my thinking and planning for next year, but I am still reflecting on the year almost past. All of us in the real estate business were faced with new and challenging opportunities this year. It wasn't so much that we didn't know it was...

Last Friday I ran a list of homes for sale in my market and listed on the Tucson MLS. It is astounding! The number just keeps on rising. The tally was 97 and there are several other homes listed elsewhere. Our normal sales level is about 35 and our normal number of homes for sale is about 45, wit...
