As we move into the second half of the year, one thing is clear: the current real estate market is one for the record books. The exact mix of conditions we have today creates opportunities for both buyers and sellers. Here’s a look at four key components that are shaping this unprecedented market. A Shortage of Columbus, OH Homes for Sale Earlier this year, the number of homes available for sale fell to an all-time low. In recent months, however, inventory levels are starting to trend up. The latest Monthly Housing Market Trends Report from realtor.com says: “In June, newly listed homes grew by 5.5% on a year-over-year basis, and by 10.9% on a month-over-month basis. Typically, fewer newly listed homes appear on the market in the month of June compared to May. This year, growth in new ...

What if you knew that there was something you could do every day that is free, easy to do and creates jobs while saving money, energy, and water? When you recycle, materials are converted into new products, reducing the need to consume natural resources, which will help to protect natural habitats for the future. RECYCLING REDUCES THE NEED FOR LANDFILLS Recycling significantly reduces the need for landfills. The world has changed very much in the past century, and the amount of waste we produce as humans is rapidly increasing. The human population has grown, and consumers are now making more purchases than before. Changes in lifestyle practices, such as eating fast food and opting for disposable items, means more waste is being created. This is compounded by the fact that much of the ne...

Rocky Dickerson is hosting the "July Active Rain Challenge - Savory Stories", and asks us to write a post about our favorite July recipes.  I am not much of a cook, in fact I would be a lot lighter if I had to depend on eating my own cooking.  However, I do grill, and my wife and I grill as often as possible during the Spring, Summer, and Fall months.  Grilled food tastes so much better than any other food in my opinion, and is something even I can't mess up.  BUT even with grilling my skills are very limited, so I will post about a quick simple meal my wife and I do several times during the Summer.  It is hot dogs, but not just any hot dog, they are "Big Bites" which I get at a little Italian Market I stop at each week called Lino's.To start with I simply fire up my gas grill until it ...

I have mentioned in previous posts, that summer is when the succulents bloom.  One of our newest purchases was this helicopter specimen. The blooms are dividing into what looks like broccoli stalks, and are continuing to do so, much to our delight and suprise.  This the strangest one of the bunch. Wishing Everyone a Delightful Wednesday,Evening.

We may be seeing a slight shift in the Lake Havasu housing market occurring right now (although it remains a seller's market for sure). I still highly recommend that buyers start the pre-approval process as soon as they decide that they want to look for a new home. That takes time. Plus, you want the ability to pounce on a property you love as soon as you see it. But you need to include a pre-approval letter with your offer. With low inventory levels and healthy buyer demand, you face some stiff competition. But "low inventory" does not mean "no inventory". So, do not lose hope."Low Inventory" Does Not Mean "No Inventory"It can be easy to feel frustrated in today's market. For months now, inventory struggled to keep up with demand...and failed. While it still remains low, that does not ...

Minneapolis, MN: We all know closing costs can be pretty expensive when getting a home mortgage loan.  You may have also seen advertisements for no closing costs, and no lender fee loans, and wondered how it all works. Read more, as I shed the bright light on how lending really works.Real or a Scam?Well, low cost, no cost, and no lender fee loans are real, and they are not officially a scam, but they are a very misleading slight of hand type of creative advertising.You see, all lenders have basically the same closing costs.  Most costs are what is known as third part fees. This means these closing costs associated with the loan are charged by someone other than the lender who is involved in the loan process.Common items include:Appraisal, credit reports, title company fees, title insura...
