Well, I just got home from the movies with my family and living in the small town of Clovis, NM I thought we could go out to the movies on a Sunday evening and it wouldn't be too full. The movie had been out a week already, not a new release, and we were a little late. 3 minutes to be exact. I had swung by to catch the last of a 40% off the markdown price at Dillards, dont you love them, and then grabbed a Pizza at Pizza Hut which was a little slow and anyway I made us late.
I tell my husband to go on ahead with the kids while I dropped off my youngest with my grandmother and get to the movie 5 minutes late. The lady at the front tells me it is SOLD OUT. In Clovis, on a Sunday Night, after the movie had already been out a week already. I explain that my whole family is inside and they have probably saved me a seat and she lets me buy a ticket.
The Movie? Fireproof. The one by the creators of Facing the Giants, the one made by the church in Georgia, starring Kirk Cameron. www.fireproofmymarriage.com
It was great and Im glad that our town is supporting this movie. It was great to go watch a movie and not have to worry about what your kids are going to see or hear that I will have to explain to them later.
It was funny, made you laugh, made you cry, moving, exciting, all that. Anyway Thanks to Sherwood, the church that made the movie and thanks to Clovis for supporting it.
Back to Real Estate.
Well in the past week 21 homes were sold in the Clovis MLS, 10 went under contract, 23 listings lowered their prices, and 30 homes were listed.
Of the 21 homes sold, 4 were bought with conventional loans, 4 with FHA loans, 8 with VA loans, 3 were bought with cash and 1 was sold on a Real Estate Contract. Looks like the people who are being transferred to Cannon AFb are still buying homes!
11 of those homes sold were in the Northeast part of town.
We have a few new listings personally, 816 John Doe which has a huge living room with fireplace, big open kitchen and dining area plus a very nice big workshop out back for $119,900.
1612 Avondale is a big house with a big backyard, big living room and bedrooms. New carpet and updated kitchen and bathrooms, $145,000.
216 Rosa was the little flip that could. The current owners bought it for $64,000 back in March after it was on the market for 291 days. It was pretty ugly! Then they pretty well gutted it, all new windows, floors, walls, texture, paint, trim, and it is beautiful! We have it listed for $109,000 and are expecting an offer on it in the morning!
Leah listed 482 SR 523 last week. A Super nice 2 story, 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom home on 5 acres with a motocross track out back. All it needs are some trees for curb appeal. It is gorgeous inside and I had the opportunity to make a virtual tour of it. It is listed for $399,000 and they will look at offers. Check out the tour on www.the505group.net. or www.katharinefly.com It is beautiful!
A new thing this week is my priority on getting together relocation packages to send out. I will also be buying peanut patties and giving them to the chamber of commerce to include as a welcome to the new people being transferred to Clovis. Welcome to Clovis!
