When it is time.

Today, the real estate market is pulling from a lot of different directions. Homeowners need a steady experienced person to be a trusted advisor. A market current, pragmatic, and unhyped counsel on potential home investments (dealing with deferred maintenance and cosmetics) and what likely return for their time, effort, and money can be realistically anticipated.

I spend many hours over long periods of time in person, email, and on the phone providing value and confidence to homeowners.
Let me do that for you, it is at the core of what I call... Showing Up, Working Hard, Every Day. & Long before I ask for your commitment.

So invite me to your home. I will drink your coffee, tea, or tap water, and take a brief tour with you. Then, we will discuss your plans and I listen to you carefully as I know some agent's simply don't listen and only want to talk about themselves. No "presentation", just me with my legal pad and clipboard.

I will then leave, almost always before I am asked, and prepare a report for you to give you the counsel you are looking for so you can make the best decision possible when you are are ready to do so.

Is it currently a sellers market or has it shifted to a buyers market?

YES is the short answer.
We currently have a limited supply of homes at a 2.0 Months supply for existing single family listings as of 2/8/24.

We (MSP) have been in a seller's market since Nov 2014 when it hit 3.9 months of supply.
