Where are the HOT Edmond Neighborhoods?Last week, I posted statistics about the real estate market in Edmond, Oklahoma.  What the statistics showed is that in 2009 the largest segment of sales were in the $150,000 to $200,000 price range.  In 2009 this price range also had an increase in total sales over 2008.  This was great news for Edmond Real Estate!There are many Edmond neighborhoods in this price range; Chimneyhill, Cedar Pointe, Pebble Creek, Copperfield, and Forest Oaks to name a few.  But based on a short maketing time, which neighborhoods were HOT in 2009?To refresh your memory, the Edmond neighborhoods that I used to compile my data last week are all within the Edmond Public School district.  When I looked more closely at the price range I found several HOT additions.  These ...

Edmond Homes Sold 2008 vs. 2009As 2009 ended the television news shows were filled with prognosticators making statements about 2010 and our national economy, real estate, and entertainment.  Did you see them?  The forecast overall seems good for the country.  But real estate is a local news story.  So, while my family huddled around the tv to watch endless bowl games, I huddled up to my computer and gathered real estate data for Edmond.I chose to look only at homes that feed into the Edmond Public Schools system by price range.  I compared homes that had closed from January 1, 2009 through December 31, 2009 to homes that closed the previous year in the same year long span.  All data used was found on the Oklahoma City MLS.As you can see from the illustration above, in the price ranges...

Out with the old, in with the new.  Christmas brings  in the new clothes, toys and household items.  This makes the end of the year a perfect time to clean out the old from the closets and drawers throughout your home.  Sort what you want to keep, what can be donated to an Edmond charity, and what should be thrown away. The items that can be recycled should be sent to a local charity.  Plus, if you make the donation by the 31st of December, you will have a tax deduction for 2009.  In Edmond there are several organizations that will make use of your donations.  Remember, only leave your donations at an attended center.  Please do not "dump" your donations at the door.  If you have recently relocated to Edmond, here is a list of reputable Edmond charities that you may want to consider; T...

Brrrr!  It is so very cold outside in Edmond, Oklahoma today!  Knowing that this day was on it's way, I went through my home and made sure that all the windows and doors were closed tight.  Unfortunately, I found more than one window that was not and was causing a draft of cold air to come into my home.  Because the windows are original to our 1992 home and a builder's grade it was a struggle to get them closed.  It took two of us to get the job done.  One to push the window down with all our might and one to quickly close the latch.  Needless to say these are not the most efficient windows available.  Once we managed to close the window we discussed how we really need to replace these windows... someday!Well someday may be coming in 2010!Yesterday President Obama proposed a new program...

Ah, the wonder of the holiday season.  Last weekend I brought down boxes and boxes of holiday decorations from my attic to be displayed throughout our home.  Okay, to be honest my husband did!  But I found decorations I had not used in years, like my mom's nativity set, wall hangings that belonged to my grandma, and a lot that could be donated or thrown away.  I bet you have an attic full too.What do you do with all your decorations if your house is available for sale?  Do you still bring all these family treasures from the attic and decorate the entire house?  Or, do you try to live without any decorations at all?As an Edmond Realtor, I offer this suggestion; yes, by all means decorate your home.  The sparkle of lights and decorations will add warmth to your home and even encourage buy...

In Edmond Oklahoma you will find an old world village with one builder and one developer. The quality is outstanding, and no more yard maintenance.  The location is great because you have access to all highways.

We've found a couple of needs to fill, and have created a new blog to do so. We're now handling pre-foreclosure properties all around Oklahoma County. These types of properties typically attract a different type of buyer than a typical listing, so we've created a blog to display ONLY short-sale and investment-type homes. This should serve as a direct resource for investors and home buyers looking only for pre-foreclosure and foreclosure homes. CHECK IT OUT!

Having lived in Cedar Pointe up until a year and a half ago, I have a lot of great things I could tell you about this small, close-knit Edmond community, but if you found this, you've probably already chosen Cedar Pointe as your next home. Now it's time to find the right home, right? Here's a great one I just listed yesterday:4 Beds, 2.5 baths, 3-car garage and so much more. The thing you'll notice from the pictures is the wonderful decor and the perfect condition of this open, inviting home at 1920 Cedar Pointe Ln. Click here to let us know when you'd like to see it in person.Originally posted at my Edmond Real Estate Blog.

I know that it is hard to make a dry cleaners sound sexy, but Parkway Cleaners in Edmond Oklahoma does just that. The owner, Mark Neighbors is passionate about cleaning, and he is advanced beyond most places in the country, like bloggers and social networkers go one step beyond in marketing. First, let me talk to about technology. Mark hired an Italian company to build the largest conveyor belt dry cleaners system they had ever built. When you walk into Parkway and give them your name for pick up, the system automatically starts moving. When your laundry and/or dry cleaning come down to the floor level, automatic arms pick it up, put it in a bagging area, and automactically bad your clothing. Everything is bar coded for a fool proof system. When I bring in my clothes I have two differen...
