I am genuinely grateful that so many of you take the time to read this newsletter. Howard's 'did you know' column always garners the most comments but the response to his sweet potato column from last issue was incredible. Howard bases his column on something that piques his interest and this month's column on clear, cold springs is no exception!
Again, thanks so very much for your referrals, they are always and sincerely appreciated.
Real Estate is a people business and not a science but sales in May and June were off the charts. (see link below for May) The pent-up demand of locals looking to move up, first time home owners, and buyers coming from high tax markets drove the sales. Single family homes in good condition, that showed well and were priced correctly, literally flew into the pending market.
As many of you have read, during last year's red tide outbreak and hurricane, buyer traffic trickled and then stopped. But the builders kept on building and there was significant inventory that competed with resales. A few weeks ago, after previewing and visiting many new communities, I personally saw the lack of spec inventory. Resales are again catching the eyes of buyers. Big item to note here: 2019 buyers have little to no interest in "fixing up" or making changes. They are looking for a move in ready home that fits their lifestyle. If you are considering listing your home, please keep this front of mind...
Thank you to David and Candace for working with me on the purchase of your new home.
When you have a moment, if you could rate my service on Google I’d be very appreciative.
