What's New in Real Estate - December 2019
I hope you are enjoying the beauty of the holiday season, even if we escaped the promised snow and are not a winter wonderland! 2019 has been an interesting year in real estate! It started slower than we all expected and has ended with far more activity than we typically see this time of year! This bodes well for our spring market, which starts earlier than most people think! Ideally, we are bringing new inventory to market in late January or February as buyers have been waiting through a dry spell of market introductions and early market entrants are most likely to be received well. I expect that to be even more so this year -- I have never seen inventory this low. So if you are considering a move in 2020, now is definitely the time to take a break from cookie baking and give me a call to strategize for spring! 

Stay warm and safe and enjoy every moment of this holiday season.
With gratitude,

We would like to move to Sewickley. Are there any affordable homes anymore?
Of course there are! But Sewickley, particularly in affordable price ranges, has become a very competitive market. It seems the secret...

Our home is on the market – is it ok to show it decorated for the holidays or should we take it off the market?
Buyers who are shopping during the holidays are some of the most serious buyers we see each year – most people don’t bother spending their precious holiday time looking at homes unless they have a need to buy....
