Can you believe it's almost the end of 2006? I know I say this every year but don't the years just fly by? It makes you really take a look at where you are, where you want to go & what you should be doing. At least for me it does. I set yearly goals & look at them often to remain on track. Some of us set goals at the New Year & forget about them until the following year. To me, life is too short to not be happy & do what you want to do. This year make plans & goals that bring happiness into your life & stick with them!
Hopefully you have your holiday shopping done & if not be careful on the roads. The tourists are definitely here as the traffic is much different than even a month ago. Showings are up on our listings but offers are slower to come in. Inventory is still high but the properties that are priced correctly are selling. We do have plenty of buyers in town!
Enjoy your friends & family ~ remember gratitude & giving...

Year in Review
The market took a dramatic shift this year from a very strong seller's market to a very strong buyer's market. The buyers and sellers have finally begun to react accordingly and inventory is moving. We predict 2007 to be a very telling year as foreclosures continue on the rise & the baby boomers start making their way into the Florida marketplace.
For those of you who are curious, this year I closed 23 transactions. That's down slightly from last year (crazy year) however still well above average.
As always, contact us at any time with any real estate questions you may have. I look forward to working with you to help you obtain whatever real estate goals you have this year & for life!
Yours in Success, Susan Milner, Licensed Real Estate Consultant & e-PRO GRI REALTOR®
