Jacksonville’s Board of Realtor’s election night-more photos to follow?

Standard

The last few months I have felt like I have been riding the bench professionally during a great game.  I managed to pull it together for last night’s festivities which, despite the contractions and sore feet and being overheated, made me feel a little more myself for a night which was a nice change of pace.  Everyone is joking that “once the baby arrives, you’ll be exhausted and it will slow you down”- they’ve obviously not experienced a difficult pregnancy.

Looking forward to launching some new projects and ideas and having my new right-hand-man by my side.  Subletting my body for the last year has given me time to fill MANY notebooks. . .big plans and goals for the future!

Today is also my birthday.  I had a talk with baby Garrett- included the philosophy my folks instilled that early is on time, on time is late and late is unforgivable.  I buffered the delivery and birthday conversation with the pointer that with both his father and my birthdays close to the due date, it would be lovely if everyone kept separate special days.  Last week we made it through a harvest moon, a packed labor and delivery department at the hospital and his father’s birthday.  This week I cleared my docket and rearranged a few big plans in anticipation since we are making very slow and steady delivery process.  The average first birth is fifteen hours, so reaching mid-day on my birthday I feel I’m safe to guess that we are in the clear but ANY TIME from here on out would be lovely.  Baby G, I’ll take a rain check for a day with no nausea, and getting to take a quick nap on my stomach as a present from you.  🙂

Hope you have big things brewing too!  Cheers to planning for an amazing sis-bang-boom to send out 2013 and to putting things in place and in motion for an even more amazing 2014!

Shifting market

Things are changing daily and weekly in ANY real estate market and the best analogy I have found is that real estate is just like the weather, it’s very local in nature.  What is true for one zip code or neighborhood isn’t the same for one down the road.  Commercial development, road construction, school zone changes, rates of bank owned homes all can change resale numbers and price per square foot valuations on properties.

Our local Jacksonville/Onslow County/Eastern NC market is affected by these changes as well as the rate of plus ups or cut backs of military bases.  We are blessed with a ton of new construction on Camp LeJeune (new ranges and more, and increased treatment options for wounded warriors and retirees at the local Naval Hospital) and MARSON base improvements as well as new assignments to MCAS New River . . .we aren’t sure what the future holds but we can read market indications and prepare any client to move best with the flow of the market so things are advantageous as possible for the most beneficial outcome.

Cheers to changes and preparing as best we can!

18 homes, a dozen stair cases and four inch heels

Equals a fun day at the Carolina Plantations Open House.  I think after nearly twenty homes, close to one hundred degree temps and over two hours outside, I get a free pass on the marathon training for the day (side bar note:  should any of your have the name of a reputable rickshaw dealer and/or taxi in the Portland, Oregon area, let me know; that’s the back up plan for the run).  I dare say I made it to a darker shade of off-white today!

Have questions regarding new construction options and the purchase process?  I’m your gal!
