Our amazement continues with the strength of the Seller’s market and the fast changing landscape of North Durham. Families and Investors alike continue to migrate East from the city, perpetuating a competitive climate as population grows and transit expansion continues. There never seems to be enough housing inventory to meet the need.
However, before the tulips have risen from the garden and before the snow has left our lawns for good, some of our clients are still seeing lots of green! As multiple offers and over asking selling prices become the norm, the consideration of putting one of our signs on your front lawn becomes enticing! Real Estate has proven and continues to be an excellent long term investment for homeowners who have financially benefited from these market conditions.
Unfortunately, our Buyers have felt the frustrations of being on the other end of the market price climb. Trying to get in the market, or wanting to move up to a quickly-jumping mid-range home? Let our experience and expertise guide you to successful home ownership. The journey may not be easy, but with tips and tricks we work hard to make your home ownership dreams become a reality.
Other changes and growth include the cauliflower-sized intern due in June! The arrival of grandchild number 3 for Tula and Tony and my first born is fast approaching, and the always enjoyable Yuk Yuks client appreciation night is moving to a post-summer date. We are sorry, but look forward to a fun-filled Fall event.
We are excited for all the changes this year will bring… will YOUR move be one of them?

MAINTENANCE TIP : CLEAN YOUR WINDOWS!
Say goodbye to winter grim and hello to sunshine!
1) Remove and lay window screens on flat surface. Wet and scrub lightly and repair holes. 2) Clean inside of window with cleaner, soft towel or try Newspapers for a streak-free shine! 3) Caution with second-story exterior windows if on ladder. Opt for a window cleaning attachment to a garden hose, or to hire professionals. 4) Open clogged weep holes of dirt, paint or sealant to remove moisture and prevent mold/mildew 5) Re-apply weather stripping and sealant. Vaccum around inside of window sill. Clean metal tracks with steel wool to prevent sticking before putting back window screens. 6) Reassemble and enjoy the natural light!
