market: Flagler County/Palm Coast Market Takes Off In March - 04/19/15 07:59 AM
2015 started off slightly down with January and February both 4% under the number of sales compared to 2014, but the area rallied last month and took off.  March had 202 residential houses close which was around a 27% gain compared to March 2014, and bringing the total number of sales at around +9% compared to the same period last year.  It’s always difficult to put a finger on just one contributor to these types of fluctuations, but I personally think the travel barriers caused by weather in many other part of the country this winter was a significant contributor.

  I love Halloween.  It's one of my favorite times of the year.  Yes, we have a "pimped pumpkin" this year (my husband's idea).  Anyway, I came across a great ghost story I thought I would share . . .
The Minnesota Ghost  
This is too good not to read, especially if you thought ghosts didn't exist!

This out of state traveler was on the side of the road, hitchhiking … (2 comments)
