Human beings are visual learners – they always have been, and they always will be.A big part of this has to do with the way that the human brain works. According to one recent study, when people hear information, they generally only remember about 10% of what they're exposed to. If that information is paired with relevant visuals – be it in the form of a video or even static content like a photo or infographic – they remember 65% of it on average. All told, it's estimated that between 51% and 80% of all businesses in every industry will rely heavily on visual content in 2021 – a trend that shows absolutely no signs of slowing down anytime soon. That, in essence, is what Canva is all about.Canva is a graphic design platform that can be used to create visual content like social media grap...

May is one of the best months to be in West Maui because of its perfect weather. Similarly, it seems to reflect one of the best months for home sales, according to the Realtors Association of Maui (RAM) report.West Maui remains one of the best luxury spots for a grand Hawaiian residence or vacation resthouse. That is why there’s never a shortage of robust buyers who are also aware of the low mortgage rates. Various properties are available in the area, from single homes, condominiums, vacant land, beachfront, or oceanfront real estate.Full Article Here: West Maui Real Estate Trends for May 2021

 Someone mentioned today that Sunday is August 1st. Are you kidding me? I had to look at the calendar to get a handle on just how the summer is flowing by fast - so fast! It's been a very busy (and good year) and I'm so ready to take a break for awhile. Thus - I hope to be back in the swing of blogging, at least until we head out of town.  I've done my best to keep up with at least reading and leaving comments on blogs and in Q & A, most days. And I miss you guys! !!  Next blog up - I've got a great and EASY recipe for delicious coleslaw that you will want to keep on hand for those quick and easy side dishes we all need in a hearts moments at times. My dear friend Connie made it for us last Saturday and we loved it.  You are going to love it too!   Drunken Coleslaw coming up tomorrow!

Greenfield is located in Centennial, with some of this neighborhood in the City of Aurora.    It is located off Arapahoe Road & Picadilly in the South part of the Metro Denver area.   It is located in Cherry Creek School District, which is just one reason this neighborhood is popular! I like to stay on top of the statistics for the community, and nice to review the numbers every quarter.   Most months there are just one or two sales.  For the month of June, there were three  sales.    Usually only later in the week do we see active listings, but there is one listed today and two pending.  For this size of the neighborhood, we don't usually see many homes go up for sale in Greenfield or Greenfield Estates.    Here is how June 2021 fared: 3 properties sold priced from $700,000 to $875,000...

Bend OR Luxury Home Sales Have Spiked in 2020 When we think of luxury homes in Bend, we have a vision of a grand property with stunning mountain or river views, lots of elbow room, and fabulous amenities. Easy location to access the Bend lifestyle, which includes proximity to downtown, the mountains, the river, and the Old Mill also checks a lot of homebuyer's luxury wish lists. Having an up-to-date architectural design and interior features are also important to many who are making Bend their home. Yet with so many people moving to Bend over the past year and with inventory supply not keeping up with demand, homes that are not considered luxury have pushed the million dollar market into never before seen figures. The chart below outlines the last ten years of million dollar home sales ...

The statistics are in for the 3rd week of July, 2021. You may wonder how this data affects you if you are looking to buy or sell a home in Central MS. Let's see what the numbers mean.Our primary market area is Hinds, Rankin, and Madison County. You can review the stats for the particular area you are interested in. While I'm not a math wiz (and you may not be either), the numbers are revealing.Compare the number of closings vs the number of new listings. In each case, the weekly closings exceed the number of new listings. This tells me homes are selling as fast as they hit the market.Look at the supply of homes. There is less than one months inventory. This equates to a strong sellers market with low inventory, homes that sell fast with multiple offers, at list price or above.I must str...
