Unless you live under a gigantic rock, you’ve had to notice the press Real Estate has had recently. We have been BLOGGING and discussing how our little microcosm of the world has enjoyed a healthy uptick since this past winter. More inquiries, more appointments, more showings, more sales! Some said it was a mild winter, some said it was the interest rates, some said it was the stock market…I believe it was not only all of the above, but also the fact that we’re off the bottom! You can only stand on the sideline so long, before you just have to jump in…and that’s exactly what happened. It’s actually been 7 years since the height of the market – over all sales activity – That’s a long correctionary market.
