History has shown us that real estate is cyclical, and all the local statistics indicate that it’s an awesome time to consider selling your home. We’ve found that homes in the lower price points are in high demand. We recently listed a home at $250,000, and we received some 32 offers on it! If you’re considering moving up, no matter your situation, we’d love the opportunity to review your needs and wants regarding a home and to take a look at market trends so you know exactly what you’re working with.
Recently, you’ve probably heard talk in the news media about the economy slowing down. I always want to ground these sorts of conversations—they all talk about the future, but the truth is that nobody has a clue about what’s really going to happen. That in mind, today I want to reframe the conversation and let you know what’s actually going on in today’s market.

A Christmas Poem, From Our Family to Yours
Carols in the distance,
I can smell Christmas
Floating in the air.
Candy canes and bonbons,
Angels top the tree.
There’s presents over yonder,
One for you and me.
Tinsel wrapping, round and round,
Candles light the night.
Making Santa’s journey
Sparkly and bright.
A very merry Christmas
To your family, my friend.
May your new year bring happiness.
May the joyful times not end.
