I love blogging. And I love reading other blogs, and commenting, and teaching about blogging and social networking. I feel the power, the potential, and truly do enjoy the connection and the shared knowledge. But I don't blog or read or comment enough, at least, not as much as I should or people tell me I should. I compose blog posts in my mind and make mental notes of good subjects to write about. And then ... poof! It's all gone as I get derailed with distractions, and my topics are no longer timely or novel or something I'm motivated to write about. I'm thankful for those of you who can do it--post often and timely. And I hope no one will think less of me if I lurk, don't post comments, or write except every 3-4 weeks.
So, briefly, all's well on the Western Slope of Colorado. Real Estate is picking up. We're actually closing deals, although it takes a lot longer with greater effort, frustration, and not so much help from the lending industry. For buyers, despite the challenges with financing, it truly, definitely, most assuredly is the best time to buy. For sellers, not so bad here if you plan to buy something in replacement. If you don't have to sell now but are thinking about it, it's a crap shoot. You may be better off waiting. But if you do, and the market picks up, then so will interest rates and others getting into the game (i.e., more sellers and inventory). And I'm talking about the Montrose area, which may be quite different than nationally. What will not change is that we in the Montrose, Colorado area have a most incredible place to live and work and play. And I do love living, working, and playing here.
