Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400 hi Sheila... thanks for that shout-out... no doubt in my own mind if any Somerset homeowner wants to sell, I can help them cash in on major equity.

Prices sure have changed dramatically in a year, those that purchased in Somerset last year are probably feeling pretty good about right now.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel hi Alexandra... maybe the pace of increasing home prices will level off, but I don't see home prices dropping any time soon. We would need an awful lot of new inventory to see that happen.

Hi Nina - in a few months we will catch up with Phyllis' nephew and wife who live in Charlotte.  Theirs was the wedding we attended.  I know they had a home when they were married to years ago.  I guess it is a double edged sword.  Sell quickly at a profits but where to get an offer accepted on a new home.  Just found out they are pregnant.

Grant Schneider hi Grant... that is indeed the conundrum... you'll sell quickly but not find a home quite as quickly. If they can qualify for a mortgage without selling their current home, they should be able to start home shopping and make an offer and then put their house up for sale. Congratulations on the new addition to-be to your family!
