Greetings! Well the news is good. Real Estate sales are steadily improving again for the second quarter of 2010. As of June 9th 2010 the overall market is up 24.97% from this time last year. The biggest increase in sales is in the high end market, which is good news for the luxury seller. It is ...
How does it look in our area?   Let's start by saying thank goodness that awful Winter is over! With December bringing us record breaking rain fall, then over a foot of snow which froze and then more rain on top of frozen snow, it was dismal and mucky. I cannot remember any other time driving thr...
  What to expect in the market in 2010. I saw the market pick up in the second half of 2009, and consumer confidence increase. In September we saw our luxury listings moving more quickly and with bidding situations occurring. Although prices will remain flat in many markets, we may see a slight i...

Any fool should known that prices ...

Now that must come as a surprise to all those that went out on boats, including kayaks and canoes to g...
Well, the real estate buyer decided to take their lives off hold and buy homes - taking advantage of the still low interest rates and the affordability factor that increased in the last couple of years with higher supply forcing homeowners to lower prices to match demand. Currently there are 12 h...
I heard an interesting statistic on the radio yesterday. Nationwide home sales prices are down 14% overall since last year, yet up an overall 60% since 2002.
