With so much of the financials dominating the news, why not change around the focus and emphasis a bit. Green Valley, Arizona is not only a very interesting and beautiful place to call home, but a quiet place to enjoy having a meal.
If you are on the budget side, there is of course our friendly neighborhood McDonalds or maybe our local Whopper. If you want to elevate a bit, try our hometown Arby’s or the newer Carl’s Jr. in the Super Wal Mart Center. I dare not forget the Taco Bell by... [Read more]
When March arrives it frequently brings the windy season along with it. I can remember when
I was a young boy and my parents would take me kiting. That brings back a lot of great memories. This year March seems to carry the quickly moving change theme in it’s wings. Unfortunately for most of us, the market does not seem to like the direction of the proposed changes. But, my oh my, how easily the real estate market can be impacted by proposed changes. One thing for sure, we need to see is the... [Read more]
Of course we are coming up on Valentine’s Day. I do believe that it is
important to remember that special person or persons in our lives and
to make and effort to make them feel extra special. That is what is so
great about Valentine’s Day…it is a vehicle to accomplish that. Whether
it is flowers, perfume, candy, or some other type of present or nice
gesture, whatever that certain something is will almost certainly be very
well received. And that means for me, it will be well worth... [Read more]
Well, I have to admit that in the last blog, I got a little overwhelmed and or frustrated by the seeming direction that our national socio economic reality was heading. But alas, now I am firmly and fitly optimistic and I am still hoping for some responsible decision making.
As far as our real estate market is concerned, I am surprised by how many “experts” there are in understanding this market. If these experts were that smart they would have warned us months and months ahead of time... [Read more]
This time of year brings us to the point of being of wanting to be blindly optimistic about the general direction of our socio-economic reality. What else can you do? I am sure most of you are not happy about the bailouts, and the chorus of feed me, feed me…. from all the late to the party opportunity seekers. Many of us have been working ( wow, really working) and been sacrificing and saving. Or should I say SAVING AND SACRIFICING? We have been hoping to navigate through the economic rules... [Read more]
Since this is the most celebrated time of the year, I must try to count some of my blessings, especially when it comes to the world of real estate. When it looked like things might begin to stablilize in early October, here comes Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Even with all the surprises they brought, they also have brought opportunity along with them. At least, it is obvious to me , that there is opportunity in that they need some regulation desparately and a sobering look at how they arrive at creating... [Read more]
We are thankful that the election season has come and gone….except for a few closely contested races. No matter who you chose, we are all faced with the prospect of moving forward. I have maintained that in order for the real estate market to really begin to see growth, we must first move past the election cycle. Now we can hopefully look forward to homebuyers beginning to formulate or finalize their plans when it comes to relocating, or purchasing a home. In our area prices are still the best... [Read more]
Labor Day was great, and we hope all of you enjoyed the holiday. As Realtors we have to embrace the time we have for our clients as well as for our perspective clients. It is imperative that we use that precious commodity wisely. Everyone has heard about the finantial crisis that is looming over our heads as this article is being written We, as with most of you, indeed are hopeful for a possible solution that will not leave us in a more perilous position.
When it comes to our philosophy with our... [Read more]
