  Wahoo! July is here in force.

Hi-dee-ho neighbor! 
Well, it's June! And June means... time for making hay, right? Kids getting out of school, 
summer vacations planned, and houses to be bought and sold, so that all the "heavy-lifting" 
as it were happens before school starts back up in a few months. 
So, what I want to know is WHEN would be the very best time for you to move? 
Take a look at what's out there this week, and let me know if something is appealing to you.

We lost an American icon this week. He literally & figuratively "fought the good fight". 
Mohammed Ali had a presence and leaves a legacy with his children and 
grandchildren, and in the American lexicon. We all know the "Float like a butterfly, 
sting like a bee" came from him, but did you know these other inspirational phrases 
can be attributed to him as well? 
"He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life." 
"The man who views the world at 50 the same as he did at 20 has wasted 30 years of 
his life." 
As I surfed the 'net in search of … (0 comments)

Would you take investment advice from a billionaire? According to Forbes magazine,
John Paulson is, "A multibillionaire hedge fund operator and the investment genius."
He is suggesting that if you can, you should buy a home.
He broke down the math of home-ownership as an investment:
1. "Today financing costs are extraordinarily low." The latest numbers from Freddie Mac 
show us that you can still get a 30-year mortgage at historically low rates of under 4%.
2. "And if you put down, let's say, 10 percent and the house is up 5 percent," as many experts 
predict, "then you would be up 50 percent on your investment." How … (0 comments)

Happy Spring!   It seems like you never know what April will bring! Texas is having floods, Seattle & Toronto a 
heat wave, California rains, and snow in the Rockies. Just wait five minutes... I'm sure it'll 
change. :) And in spite of the weather properties listing and selling within days...  If you're truly 
in the market to purchase a home within the next 60 days, now's the time to act. Have your plan 
in place, let someone (me!) know that you're serious about the hunt, have your mortgage 
"approval" in place, and get out an look at homes!  ALSO, if you're looking for something specific, … (0 comments)

Good morning, Good Afternoon, & Good Evening!
Our market is just FUN!  It seems each week brings a new and intriguing situation...
last week people were asking about investment opportunities and this week, it seems
that Luxury is the topic of the day.  How do you define luxury? Is it the price, the 
space, or the feel of a place?
This is a really good time to assess if it's time for you to "move up".  Are you considering
this?  This kind of transaction takes a bit of coordination... to find a new place to live, then
have you home sell, and be able to do … (0 comments)

Sales Contracts Hit Highest Level in Months
  So last week, I gave you the doom and gloom about buying in a HOT market. 
Now here's a slightly different perspective that shows that buyers are still 
The National Association of Realtors (NAR) just announced that the February
Pending Home Sales Index reached it’s highest reading since July 2015.
This index means that  more contracts have been signed by buyers that will 
soon translate to sales. February’s Index rose 3.5% month-over-month to

Were you one of the many to see Batman v Superman this weekend?  
Can you believe it's showing at over 19,700 screens across 39 
territories across the globe? Do you know that it has had the largest 
opening in $ of any superhero movie to date?? Talk about the power of 
hype!   I bring this up, because it's kind of like this Spring market -- a LOT of 
hype, the feeling of scarcity and high demand... which is forcing prices 
to hold, and many buyers to compete for homes, some of which end 
up selling WAY above list price (which seems great for sellers), until 
the appraisal doesn't support the amount … (0 comments)

I'd like to share a story with you.   This week, a friend, who is very computer-savvy, had a computer issue.  She put a video of "the red screen of death" on facebook. What I found interesting was all of the comments. Everyone has some working knowledge (as end-users) of computers, right? Especially if they're on facebook. The armchair experts weighed in, with everything from "it's a virus", "you upgraded to Windows 10 too soon", and the inevitable, "this never happens with a Mac".   Come to find out, it was a failed hard drive. Nobody suggested this option. The way … (0 comments)

March brings to mind spring flowers, "springing forward" with our clocks (this weekend), and spring break! For us in real estate, it brings thoughts of a busy busy time, with the "spring market". In the next few weeks we'll be seeing more and more homes coming on the market, which is a great thing for you, as a home buyer. Many more choices to be had.   This is an ideal time for us to have a conversation about what it is you'd really like.  AND, if you're a first-time home buyer, we have a special 2-hour seminar in which we can give you all … (1 comments)

Time marches on!  Here we are, already three months into the new year and the market has been busier than ever. I know of several homes being prepped to sell, so we anticipate the weekly list to grow over the next month. This is really exciting as a buyers agent, so our buyers can see the great variety of homes available in our market.   Another great way to get a feel for the market is with our tour of homes -- we can run you around the neighborhoods giving our personal insights into the features, amenities, and feel of the various areas … (1 comments)

I was chatting with my coach the other day, and she asked me, "What do you think YOUR clients appreciate MOST about you as a Realtor?" Although initially I thought it was my years of experience and knowledge of the market, or maybe myability to negotiate, the reality is... I think people appreciate my ability and willingness to listen. (My team &) I truly want to understand exactly what it is you want, and WHY you want it.  Yes,we have experience and knowledge and all the credentials, but NONE of those matter until weknow what YOU want. So I ask you, what is it that … (0 comments)

It was great to hear from you who have been thinking about buying a home. We love the stories, the humanity that binds us all, in discovering the “why” of things.  As we started last week with the question, “Why am I buying a home in the first place?”  The second question is equally as important in determining if purchasing a home NOW will be a good fiscal decision, for a large financial investment. Where are home values headed? According to the latest Home Price Index, home values are projected to increase by 5.3% over the next 12 months.
