After looking at North Liberty on Monday, it's time to look at what's up in the housing market  in Coralville today. My market reports have been woefully lacking in the last few months due to time constrictions and I missed October. I'm going for two for one today again and catching up on both Oc...
Time to bring some consistency into my market reports again after a hectic summer selling homes, followed by a hectic fall for me as I got all the pieces in place to start my own company. Generally my market updates start with Iowa City, the poster child of the area. This month I figure North Lib...
Cardinal Realty opened its doors for business this week. As my good friend Corinne Guest so eloquently said in her post this morning. AR is a journey. The decision to start my own real estate company comes in no small part through the influence of ActiveRain. When I signed up at AR in July 2009 I...
After reporting on the continuing positive trend in the real estate market in Iowa City I thought it was about time that I took a look at the other areas I service. Today it's Coralville's turn. The good news is that home sales are also up in Coralville. In fact home sales in Coralville this year...
November is shaping up to be another good month for the Iowa City real estate market. 36 homes sold in Iowa City this month to date.  37 homes sold last year in November so we're on track to beat that number easily by the end of the month.  55 homes are listed as pending or contingent. There are ...

That's a lot of homes for this late in the year. That reflects a 44% increase over last year and a 63% increase compared to last month. (38 h...
The Coralville Center for the Performing Arts has become one of my favorite places to write about when it comes to my posts about what to do in the Iowa City area at the weekends. There is so much variation in their program that I end up introducing something new almost every week. Flavors: A Fea...
Right after we spend a month filled with scariness and spookiness we move right into the Holiday Season. Funny how that happens, don't you think? You only need to switch on your TV to see what I mean. Talk about what a difference a day makes, or in the case of local events, a week! Last week Rock...
It's that time of year again. Time to get a head start on shopping for the Holidays at the Fall Art and Crafts Show in Coralville this weekend. You'll have lots of choices with 150+ vendors tempting you with their wares. This is one of two major craft shows we have in the area in the run up to th...
We are enjoying absolutely beautiful Fall weather in Iowa at the moment, in stark contrast to to our friends on the East Coast who are getting hammered with winter storms. Yesterday I was over on the east side of Iowa City picking up an earnest money check and felt really lucky to have an opportu...
