Troy Strawberry Festival

Another year and another festival – this one with the emphasis on “strawberries!”  This year’s festival is planned for June 6 and 7, 2009 and is worth packing up the family to head out and spend the day. Not only will your sweet tooth be thrilled, but you are likely to find unusual or new twists to the Strawberry favorites! Don’t forget the booths of crafts as well as food dishes…we’ll probably see you there. Check out their Site for more information CLICK HERE.

Centerville City-Wide Garage Sale

It’s time to clean out those closets, get things ready for the “big sale” and all of Centerville is looking forward to making a bit more room in the closets!   DIV P { MARGIN: 0pxThis year, the event is scheduled for Thursday, April 30, 2009 through Saturday, May 2, 2009 from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  Watch for the signs and drive the neighborhoods – there is sure to be some good deals (afterall, one man’s trash is another’s treasure!)

What Are YOU Waiting For??

We hear it in the news – the banks have money to lend…but are they “lending” money?  I have at least a DOZEN Buyers that are right now – looking and ready to Buy!  Even when we think we find the right house – something seems to not be right with getting them a loan.  I continue to ask – what are the Banks waiting for?!

Likewise, I have a number of “buyers” who have been looking for some time for the “right” property…and we look and keep looking.  They either haven’t even gotten to the point of getting Pre-Approved to know what  they may need to do in the event of finding the “right” place; OR, they have been Pre-Approved and the “right” place just isn’t found yet.  Maybe the rates will go down, maybe the stimulus will give them something more for buying or maybe – who knows?  Fact is, I’ve had clients that in hind-sight, DID find the “right” property they just decided not to make the offer when first seen – and then a terrible thing happened, SOMEONE ELSE made the offer and bought the property!

And while we are on the subject, Sellers – or better, Potential Sellers – what are you waiting for??  Did you know that RIGHT NOW – there are 1147 homes PENDING FOR SALE.  YES, there are Deals, there are Buyers and there are obviously Sellers – our market SOLD 8491 homes last year.  If we arleady have over 1100 Pending – seems to me with this just being the middle of February, we are on track to have a better year!

If you are looking to SELL – now is the time, if you can price your home according to the market and still be OK – don’t wait.  If you are looking to BUY – now is the time…interest rates are great and there are a number of homes to choose from, make an offer and at least START the process of negotiating.  And finally, BANKS – PLEASE START MAKING THE LOANS and being reasonable that not everyone has “perfect credit” – but people do need a place to live and they will do what it takes to provide for themselves and those they love.

Good Luck to everyone, I am here to help make dreams a reality!
