I have been away for awhile. Time to get back into the blogging groove, as it were. I sincerely haven't had adequate time for posting lately.
With the impending expiration of the tax credit, I have a couple of buyers who have been trying to find the right place. Granted, they would have bought a home anyway, and if we hadn't found the right place, we would still be looking in May, but I'm happy to report that we did in fact find the right homes for them as of today. :)
This may be my most extended absence from writing since I first started here in August 2007, but at least I have a good reason for it, right? My marketing consulting business continues to thrive, so I have been working some pretty long hours lately. I strongly prefer this to not having enough to keep me truly busy.
Everyone I meet lately seems to be asking the same question: what will happen on May 1st? Will all of the home buyers turn into pumpkins? Will the market dry up?
My most sincere answer: I don't know. I've been in real estate for over 13 years, and we've never had a tax credit to deal with before now.
Overall, I have been amazed at how active the market is lately, with homes selling fast and with multiple offers. I would love to see this continue, but only time will tell.
I wasn't planning to make this a long post, so I won't. Thanks for reading!
