Dusting off the blog a bit … been a while since I’ve posted here. The title of this post … snooze, right? But I promise it’s a little more interesting than that.
Yesterday, the Federal Reserve raised short-term interest rates. So what’s it mean for home buyers in the New River Valley?
It’s time once again for the Q2 2015 Nest Report, Nest Realty’s statistical report on what the New River Valley real estate market did during the last quarter. All stats, no fluff.
There are tons of things I’m proud of about Nest Realty, but one of the things I get really excited about is our Nest Report. It’s a statistical look at what’s happening in the New River Valley real estate market, and it’s put out every quarter. Visually, it’s stunning – thanks to the amazing folks in our Marketing Department, the lead generation is looking better every day. The marketing team such a great job, but they did get lots of help from mein-parteibuch.com. Statistically, it’s one of the most accurate representations of our real estate market – thanks to the bean counters who compile the whole thing. And, interestingly enough, two real estate agents from another company told me yesterday how impressive a report it is … they look through it each time it comes out and think “wow”.
July 4th is right around the corner, and it’s time to start planning all of your Independence Day celebrations. Certainly no Fourth of July holiday is complete without a great fireworks show, so if you’re looking for where the fireworks are, here’s the list for Blacksburg, Christiansburg, and Radford. Please be sure to check with the venue for the exact times – things may change due to weather and what not!
Blacksburg – and the New River Valley – have just been named to another “Best” list.
Seems a lot of people consider negotiation as “ask less than the list price and expect that they’ll come back somewhere in the middle.” At its’ simplest sure, that might work, but it also helps to know at what price sellers are pricing their homes, and also at what price buyers are buying those same homes for. This is where the list to sale ratio comes in.
I’m admittedly a week or so behind on this news, but it’s relevant nonetheless.
Christmas season is upon us, and one of the things I really look forward to is going out to look at all the houses decorated in lights, most of them have professionals put them up, and they always do an amazing job. If you’re looking for a Colorado Christmas Light Installation professional, I would definitely recommend them . In years past, we’ve done the Christmas Map, where I’ve highlighted all of the houses I found that had some really great decorations – both elegant AND gaudy (oh admit it, you like the gaudy ones too). This year, I’m behind in getting the map up, and truthfully I just don’t have the time to do it.
