The saying goes blink and you might miss it and that sums up October, blink and it will be over, and then the election, then Thanksgiving and the 2021 will be here. Hopefully 2021 will be a better year for everyone. So I was looking at some interesting numbers for bot the Woodlands and the Magnolia area. The statistic I was looking at was Days to sell, average. October is tracking to be around 47 days to sell. What is interesting about that is January was around 75 and July was around 62. The Woodlands and Magnolia are tracking within a couple of points from each other. So what does that mean….homes are selling fast–YES, YOU GOT IT, but also what this statistic could point to is the lack of inventory. Homes are not staying on the market unless they are over-priced, bad location or poor condition. Sooooo, it’s a sellers market and if your looking to sell you still need a top notch agent. (clearing throat sound here) Hint, hint. Selling your home in a sellers market has a unique set of challenges, it’s not all rainbows and unicorns. If you are trying to buy, patience is your virtue. Their may not be much out there but that doesn’t mean you have to buy a pig with lip stick on it—-it’s still a pig. Give me a shout I would love to help you to…
Live Life to the Fulllest
Wouldn’t you know the last full week in August and Texas has a hurricane headed it’s way. Nothing new to our little slice of paradise. If you haven’t checked your pantry, you need to do it quick. Water, canned food, etc. all the staples for a hurricane. Gassing up your cars also a good preparation for a hurricane. We never know how long we will be without power so…be prepared as you can. You also are going to walk your property and bring all the items that could be flying rockets if we get some extreme winds…bird feeders, yard gnomes, pool equipment, lawn furniture. With the right wind speed these items can can off like….well rocket. The same is true if you are renting. If your home is for sale bring in your for sale sign and put it back out after the storm passes. Better for you to stay safe than have your “for sale” sign flying through your neighborhood.
Stay safe and let me know if I can help you to…
