Halloween is just around the corner and they certainly know how to rise to the occasion at Wilson's Orchard!  All through October the focus is on family fun at this part nature park, part orchard right here in Iowa City. The highlights of the month are the Pumpkin Festival and Trick-Or-Treat Week...
It's time for me to get on my soap box again. I read another one of those famous articles that got my dander up. This time it's about Agent Matching. Apparently there's another new website out there offering to match buyers and sellers with the "right" agent for them. How are they doing this? Yep...
Home Sales are up by just slightly for the first half of the year in Iowa City. A little over 1%, which might be surprising if it wasn't for the fact that it was clear from earlier market reports that the low inventory of homes on market was having an impact on home sales in the Iowa City area. T...
With half the year behind us it's a good time to look at Market Trends in Coralville. The market is trending towards a sellers market, although it is not as active as the hot spring selling season. Home sales are down 18% for the year so far. That's not surprising since there simply weren't enoug...

It's hard keeping up and sometimes it's even harder knowing which "big thing" to embrace and which ones to pass by...

Real estate is local. Sellers need to know what buyers...
Here I am, wading through data and getting my head around all the market reports I need to write to review the 2013 real estate market in the Iowa City area when I'm distracted by a post on Google+. (Yep. That's social media for you, it distracts you from the job at hand!)  The post is from Melis...
It's that time of the year again. No, I'm not talking about the Holidays, I'm talking about taking stock of what kind of year I had in real estate and how to improve on it for next year. My "to do" list at the beginning of the year included making more videos and to include voice over. Did it hap...
Market reports are popular with buyers and sellers alike. Everyone wants to know what the market is doing! I've been writing mine since 2010, (soon after I signed up with AR). I soon found out that rows of data makes for a pretty dry user experience and it didn't take long for me to start adding ...
