Hello Everybody!

Turkey Day is fast approaching and Christmas is right around the corner! The snow birds are drifting back and the restaurants are jumping. All is great here in beautiful Punta Gorda and we are reminded every day how lucky we are to be living here. The weather has broken and we are now enjoying days in the 80's - a welcome relief to some of us that have been here all summer watching the temperature rise! But in spite of the heat, we all agree we would rather be warm here on occasion than shoveling that stuff we call snow!

And as for real estate? The market continues to head in the right direction - buyers, we suggest you get here soon as prices are going up. Sellers are enjoying a record-paced market with properties that are priced correctly and selling very quickly. The inventory is still relatively low, so if you are considering listing your property, now is the time!
Enjoy the month - we'll chat again in December! And remember, in addition to Veterans Day and Thanksgiving, we have Sadie Hawkins Day, Square Dance Day, and Pins & Needle Day! Have fun and stay safe!

Tip of the Month

Want to sell your home quickly? Make it anonymous! What do you notice when you visit a model home in a new development? Often, you'll find wonderfully furnished and decorated rooms that anyone could live in. The operative word here is "anyone". So when getting yours ready to sell, take all of your personal belongings and pack them away - you'll have to do this anyway - and your buyer can then "picture" themselves living there!!
