Everyone is anxious for the ice to be off the lake. We live in an area where we get cabin fever at this time of the year and we just can’t wait for one of the first signs of spring; the ice totally melting off the lake.
Many people try to predict the exact date, people have “Ice Off” parties, and the winter blaas just seem to melt away along with the ice!
The phone is starting to ring again. For a few months, I felt like the Matag repair man. I couldn’t figure out why my phone wasn’t ringing. Were there no sellers or buyers out there that needed my help? I just couldn’t figure it out. Then, last month, my phone started to ring again. Sellers were talking about wanting to listen to me about price. Buyers were thinking the bottom was here, or at least near, and they wanted in. I am “back in the saddle again.” Yea!! Spring has indeed Sprung!!
Are you comfortable with the size of your house? I am just wondering because I have listed a beautiful house on Lake Minnetonka, close to Wayzata, Minnesota and last weekend I showed it to a nice family. They were concerned because the house was a little bit smaller than the one they live in now. They weren’t sure if they would be comfortable with less space. I have dealt with so many buyers who think they know just how many square feet they want in their new house. They know that their present house is too small or too big. But sometimes they find the perfect house, that has the pool, the big deck, but it is much smaller or bigger than they predicted they wanted. They move in and discover the house to be cozy, if it’s smaller, or provides more privacy, if it’s bigger.
But then, I wonder if anyone ever moves into their house and declares, “this is not right. I want to return it for another size.”
I spent more of the weekend eating spiral ham and less of the weekend selling homes.
Happy Easter everyone!
I got together with family and ate pleanty of spiral honey-glazed ham. I always wondered how they were cut. I imagined a ham on a stick and a man with a knife running around and around and around the ham, but alas, they have machines that do the slicing so as to be specific with slice size.
You sure wouldn’t want to be thinking about other things while using that machine!
But now its Monday and I am so happy to be back at work, ready to help people buy or sell their dream homes!
I really hope no one wants to buy this one. I advise against it.
