During the 4th quarter of 2011, Cherise and I found ourselves going back to the dark places in our hearts. This is not a misstep in our pursuit of the transformed life, nor did we undergo any type of spiritual crisis.

Who says that the market is slow? The last two contracts I have written both have multiple offer situations going. Yes, multiple offers - one on a $465,000 home in University Park! Also, in one of my recent board meetings, a member said that he saw an average of 4 competing offers on the bank-owned listings that were coming across his desk. We are in for a great 2012! There is less than a 5 month supply of inventory for buyers - pricing is not appreciating in most areas yet, but we seeing progress, the $300's - $400's are picking (8 comments)

Listing and Sales Summary – December 2011 – Colorado Springs Real Estate When looking at the Listing and Sales Summary of single family/patio homes for December 2011 (provided by the Pikes Peak REALTOR® Services Corp), this Colorado Springs CO Realtor would like to share a few thoughts to consider.

I had a chat about the temporary payroll tax cut with a reliable mortgage banker in Colorado Springs. Here’s the gist of our conversation: On December 23, 2011, President Obama signed into law the Temporary Payroll Tax Cut Continuation Act of 2011.

This requirement is effective immediately, meaning that the average guarantee fees (9 comments)
