Your Home: Did the market peak in February?

Monday, May 15th, 2017

A mild winter plus rising interest rates make for an early start to the real estate market. It seems these days that the market never really stops, to be honest. Seasonality is not as distinct as it was when I began my career in 2004. But has the market already peaked for the year? By […]

Your home: Waiting until spring to sell your home will probably cost you

Monday, February 10th, 2014

Oh the spring market! The two words together have a great “ring” don’t they? I do love the spring market. Mainly because I love the weather. Not because it is the best market that we will see all year. Honestly, as a seller, the market of today offers better odds. I have had the privilege […]

Question: Are we seeing appreciation of home values yet? Well, it is now April and we are in the heart of the spring real estate market.

Your Home: What’s behind the early hot housing market? 2 Factors

Monday, March 4th, 2013

Why is the housing market “heating up” so early this year? Boy, this could be a very long answer. However, I am going to stick to two main contributing factors: low inventory and affordability. Low inventory, in this case, means a lesser number of homes for sale than there are buyers looking to purchase. This […]
