May 2015 Newsletter

May, 2015 Dear Neighbor: I’m not sure if the entire market is going crazy or just my share of it.  In my last letter I mentioned that there were not a lot of homes for sale.  That continues to be true, with the only ones not selling being those who, trying to take advantage of the market, have overshot the mark on the price.  Speaking for myself, I can hardly get my listings on the market before I have really good offers. ...Continue Reading!
