Bits and pieces of local real estate information in the Billings Montana and surrounding area.



Yesterday as I was showing homes to a buyer client, I was followed by another agent who was bringing her buyer client through WITH HER BLACK POODLE ON A LEASH!  In Billings Montana, this is very unusual!   I was pretty amazed!  It's not like the dog was a working seeing eye dog.  It really got me...
Are you just a bit overwhelmed by the National and Local News about Home Sale prices?  While we are selling fewer homes, and it’s true that inventory is rising, our local Real Estate Market News should bring you a bit of comfort. I like to compare apples to apples once in awh...
Pumpkin and fall festival at Gainan's Heights Home and Garden Center this weekend drew a pretty big crowd! I stopped by the Billings Heights Gainan's this afternoon and ran into a whole bunch of family fun!  There was a silent auction for some decorated pumpkins (I wonder if I'll win), as well as...
In Billings Montana, we have corn mazes and we have blondes, in fact, both of my partners in my Real Estate company are blondes (enhanced). I'm gonna be sure they get a look at this picture.  Since I am a natural brunette/red head (with the help of my hairdresser), I'm pretty sure I can handle th...

I try to schedule between 3 to 5 homes in one day, at the most.  It's a bit of a ...
When wasps, hornets and box elder bugs get in the house, my vacuum cleaner becomes my weapon of choice! Every time I open up the door on the south side of my house, it seems a pesky wasp is just hanging out ready to dart into my otherwise humble abode.  It's bad enough that I can't eat outside on...
I've heard, and understood for years that when a home starts out overpriced, it usually either doesn't sell, or it sells for less than what it would have sold for, if priced right to begin with. Did I loose anyone there? This was the REALTOR TALK on our office tour to various homes today.  Our lo...
We all have an emergency bag in our car, at least we should!  I've been finding some interesting things in my bag lately. Every day I usually load my lap top into the back of my Toyota Highlander and off to the right is an emergency bag.  I keep various things in here I might need: winter hat an...
Why are the documents for a deed of trust so long and full of procedures for "what happens if you don't make your house payment" if the procedures aren't even going to be followed?  At least that's the headline news this week, pretty spooky! I'm just pissed that the end of this foreclosure mess i...
My old boyfriends she says!  Too funny! Every Wednesday my partners and I try to tour some of the homes for sale in our Billings Montana area.  This touring excursion usually begins after our office meetings and ends up with lunch somewhere on the town. I always take my camera, because I know I'm...
