Demand down with net migration

Preparing for the season

Hi Everyone,

Wow, what a summer we are having so far! I hope your cars and homes did not sustain too much damage from the hail and rain storms. A few of my clients incurred damages to their cars, windshields, as well as their house siding, roofs and basements. Being prepared for weather like this can save you some costly repairs and insurance claims. You will see the Q & A section what to do if your home gets water damage and for quick tips click here.

You will see also see articles below on preparation, from "Weathering Storms" to "Staging Your Home for Fall" to getting ready for "Back-to-School Season".

The real estate market is not a bad as the media will have you believe as it really just depends on the supply and demand in that surrounding area.  I realize negative press sells but I have been able to negotiate some fair deals for my buyers and sellers this month of August.  I am excited as a few of you are moving out before the school season starts and some are getting your keys this week so I am looking forward to it!

Feel free to ask me any of your questions and I appreciate your referrals! It really helps my business and means so much.

Have a fun and safe rest of the summer!

Q: What should I do if I see a water leak in my home?

A: Stop the leak as soon as possible and try to identify where it is coming from.  You need to call your home insurance provider and see what qualifies first. Then I would contact a few companies to get quotes of what it will cost to repair the damage and make sure you get a warranty of the work completed.  If you need references, please ask me as I am happy to help.
