How soon is soon?

Sun, 26 Mar 2017 13:30:15 +0000

I have written about this before, I am not of fan of putting a sign in front of a house indicating that it will “soon” be for sale. We are in a strong sellers market. Many of my peers believe that “coming soon” is a wonderful marketing strategy that benefits the homeowners. I view it […]

Samsung wins the taste test

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 12:45:06 +0000

It is Friday and Fridays are for fun. My can likes to chew phone charging cables but only Android cables never Apple. She prefers Samsung brand cables.

Bad remodels

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 12:45:20 +0000

There are renovations that are beautiful but they can also be what I like to call home wreckers. For example take a small historic home, rip out a few walls and put in a gourmet kitchen with granite counter tops and of course those ubiquitous stainless steel appliances. The kitchen now takes up 1/3 of […]

Home is for gardening

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 12:40:45 +0000

One of the joys of homeownership is gardening. I planted the Crocus on the south side of house many years ago so I can enjoy them every year. They always come up and each year there are a few more than there were the year before. Most summer flowers, fruit and vegetables like full sun. […]

From the dash board

Tue, 21 Mar 2017 12:50:10 +0000

The screen shot is from the “dash board” in our MLS. I have posted these before. It is a real estate snap shot of the last 7 days. It is pretty easy to see why the inventory of homes on the market is staying so low. The number of homes that have “pended” or have […]

Downtown Condo sales strong

Mon, 20 Mar 2017 12:50:03 +0000

The demand for downtown condos is strong and prices are almost as high as they were before the crash. There are still downtown condo owners who are renting out their unit waiting for the price to go up. People who purchased a condo between 2006 and 2008 may still be underwater. Owners who bought foreclosures in […]

Selling “as is”

Sun, 19 Mar 2017 14:08:25 +0000

Homeowners often ask if they can sell their home “as is”. Most any home can be sold as it is. Buyers should always have a complete home inspection so that they know what they are buying. Sellers do not have to make repairs. Often sellers agree to some repairs because they can get more money for […]

Happy Saint Patrick’s day

Fri, 17 Mar 2017 12:57:55 +0000

It is Friday and Friday’s are for fun. It is also  Saint Patrick’s day, let the drinking and debauchery begin! I happen to live in an area where it is hard to walk more than a quarter of a block without being in front of a brew house, tap room, bar, or restaurant that serves beer. […]

Aging population impacts home sales

Thu, 16 Mar 2017 12:52:24 +0000

This chart shows the increase in the percent of the population 60 and older from 6 percent in 1900 to 16 percent in 2000 and projected to be 25 percent in 2030 and 26 percent in 2050. (U.S. Census Bureau) An aging population has an impact on housing. There is all sorts of speculation about […]

What we don’t know about home owners insurance

Wed, 15 Mar 2017 12:52:20 +0000

Most of us pay into our homeowners insurance policy and never collect. We have a high deductible plan which is fine. If the place burns to the ground we can rebuild. Generally homeowners insurance will cover the replacement cost of a home which isn’t quite the same as the resale value. If a home is […]
