May 13th 2010 Housing update Rain Rain go away ! Great Stories

Real Estate Agent with Howard Hanna Real Estate Services

As I'm sitting here at my desk watching the rain come down yet again. Four weekends in a row its poured. I wonder what will the Sunshine bring. I personally have had a great month thus far. No, not selling foreclosures or short sales but regular housing transactions. The market is still dictating that potential buyers can swoop in an low-ball the seller and from the media coverage they are feeling empowered to do do .

Our firms statistics are great we have moved 148 Houses in the first quarter . We again are setting the pace to be the dominate factor in the area this year. The numbers in price are down but there are alot of smart people out there buying property right now.

I this month have met some great folks and people who will be called friends . I sold a large Farm parcel to some people who wanted a place to retire and grow a garden. The house was Early 1800's needed a ton of work and the Barn well lets say a major Barn raising party would be appropriate ! However these folks will be friends and neighbors for life. Another client is buying a retirement home It closes today . This will be there first lakefront . They called me after another agent had refused to show them a particular property they were interested in . They in turn got disgusted and one year later picked up the phone and called me. Within a week they had there retirement home under contract and 2 weeks later we are closing on it. I was able to get them there first pontoon boat thrown into the deal. Cant wait to see them buzzing by on the Lake this summer. Last but not least I had a cute little house that needed some love. It has been shown 17 times since listed. Some previous termite damage was hindering the process. The home was an estate from a elder couple and was in it 1940's decor mode. However I kept at it . Finally the right person came along and made an offer. The client accepted over coffee at the local Big Boy. This home a diamond in the rough will now become a restoration . I cant wait to see what it becomes. Large or small I love them all !

Glad I could share with you my readers. Stay tuned and know I am out doing my job ,meeting great people, and future neighbors. Cant wait to meet you !
