Through rain, snow, sleet, snow drifts, that's your Realtor! - 12/21/08 02:11 PM
So just another day - of blizzard conditions that is! A closing is scheduled for 4 pm and the roads are snow covered and dangerous. That's what we woke up to on Friday! Milwaukee Public Schools are closed, Menomonee Falls, Brookfield, Germantown, Wauwatosa, Greenfield - YOU NAME IT - THEY'RE CLOSED!! An extra day of Christmas vacation for the kids and teachers! Watched the Weather forecast and they are saying the snow should end about noon. We have 12 - 14" in our area. YIKES! I ventured out for a walk with my buddy "Simba". He dove into the snow in (20 comments)

What I like best about this kind of storm! 1. I can stay home - out of the nasty weather and still work with my Laptop. I can (11 comments)
Buying a Home - 12/18/08 03:09 PM
The market has not been better for a buyer in a long, long time. Not the entire time of my Real Estate Career ---dating back to 1985. The inventory of homes available is up! What a wonderful opportunity to have so many choices. Pick your neighborhood, pick your favorite style, the market is full of choices! Interest Rates. Rates THIS WEEK have fluctuated between 4 5/8 and 5.5% Fixed . Rates are at an all time low! I have seen rates below 5% periodically - for a day or two at a time in the past couple of years. 2 months ago (4 comments)
Menomonee Falls Real Estate Update Condominium Sales - Sales are UP! - 12/16/08 03:40 PM
Sales of Condominiums in Menomonee Falls show a total of 75 sales year to date. This is higher than the 2007 numbers. The total for 2007 was 61 sales. This is a 23% increase over last year. There likely will be some properties closing before year end, changing the numbers a little bit. New listings coming on the market are down 7% from last year.

Sales of Condominiums in Brookfield show a total of 52 year to date. This is considerably slower than the 2007 numbers. The total for 2007 was 93 sales.

Houses are selling! Don't miss this market! - 12/09/08 07:44 PM
There has been an increase in business since the election. I am not sure what that had to do with people not buying homes, or having confidence now to buy. But I can tell you I have had more appointments with buyers in the past few weeks than in the past few months. I have seen more accepted offers in the MLS (multiple listing service) than I have seen in a long time. So don't miss a great time to buy. Call today to see what is available to you. This could be the beginning of the market picking up. If (6 comments)
I WISH I could have that job! - 12/09/08 04:16 PM
With severe weather warnings going on and General Mitchell Airport in Milwaukee closing this morning, I decided to work from home today. I thought it might be safer to stay around the house, not drive - that would be better for my health. My Simba sure enjoyed the day. There is something about snow that Golden Retrievers just love. Since it is still snowing, I played "let dog in, let dog out" most of the day.
I'd love to have the job of a weatherman. They never have to be accurate. Just vague. The reports said, somewhere between 6 -10 inches (20 comments)
Market Report Menomonee Falls Wisconsin - Sales steady, Inventory Up - 12/09/08 04:02 PM
The GOOD NEWS IS: Menomonee Falls has experienced increasing or steady sales for 5 out of the last 6 months. The numbers for the year are still down from 2007 but they are improving. The sales for November were 19 - dead even with 2007. New listings in November were 30, a bit higher than the 26 for last year. Since January we have seen fewer homes coming on the market than 2007. We are down over 19.3% for the year. This indicates the market is getting better, with fewer homes in inventory and a little quicker sales for the properties that are on the market. Inventory is decreasing, if you (0 comments)

Waukesha County has experienced a down market this year as compared to last year. Sales were down in November about 34% from the 2007 numbers. New listings are down 15%.

Cost Savings Ideas for Money Strapped Homeowners - 12/06/08 04:43 AM
Most everyone is feeling the pinch this year. The economy is in a recession. Most of us on Mainstreet realized this awhile ago. It didn't take someone to put it in print this week for the average American to know it. Times are tougher than they've been in some time. Many of the people I know are earning the same or less income than 10 years ago. What happened? Middle management positions were eliminated. Factories and productions lines were moved to southern states or overseas. Costs keep going up. We may be making less money, but bills have gone up! Many (12 comments)

OH NO Mr. Bill, I'm not dug out yet!! - 12/02/08 04:22 PM
Just when you thought you'd have a break from the snow - another storm warning!! I, like many other folks in SouthEastern WIsconsin dug out from the Sunday/Monday snowstorm - well, kind of. I shoveled my walk and it blew back in last night. So - time to shovel AGAIN! I just received another weather alert - a "Winter Storm Warning". We are in the path of another storm AND with 2 fronts converging right on top of us - the weatherman can't say if we'll get 2 to 4 inches, or get dumped on. 9 Inches came down on the (21 comments)
