A Summer of Change

Every Realtor should have to experience selling their own home in order to fully understand and remember the challenges a seller faces when selling their home.  Tony and I are in the midst of selling ours after 15 years in the same place!  The listing process was painful – staging, cleaning, and frequently being the bridesmaid instead of the…(read more)

A Paraprosdokian

A paraprosdokian is a figure of speech in which the latter part of a sentence or phrase is surprising or unexpected in a way that causes the reader or listener to reframe or reinterpret the first part. It is frequently used for humorous or dramatic effect, sometimes producing an anticlimax. For this reason, it is popular among comedians and satirists.  These “paraprosdokians” were forwarded to me by …(read more)

New Albany Real Estate Stats – Mid Year

New Albany Real Estate is Back!

All I can say is Wow!  Sales of New Albany real estate continues strong and bucking the trend in Greater Columbus.  For the first half of 2011, unit sales of single family homes are up 20% over same time last year.  Unit sales in the Greater Columbus area are
down 15% for the same time frame.

Will it continue?

The number of homes “in contract” at the end of June are up 50% over last year which leads me to believe that the New Albany trend will continue into the 3rd quarter.  These stats are pretty amazing considering the inventory of homes available for sale in New Albany is down 23% over this time last year.  Sustainability of the trend will depend on if we can rebuild the inventory of homes available for sale.   If you’ve been thinking about selling but have been holding back, it looks like now is the time to
get into the market!   Call Kate or Tony Thomas today!
