Welcome 2010! It’s been a couple of months since my last post. I’ve been busy like the rest of the world getting things together for the holidays. We had a wonderful Christmas – my kids, once again, were absolutely spoiled by friends and family.
Jasper our now 5 month old American Cocker Spaniel (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=06wfk3XPhfE), (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pq4XTfoelG0) was also spoiled. Among toys and treats he also got a fabulous custom collar and 6′ leash from Approved By Houston (www.approvedbyhouston.com). I found the prices really quite reasonable and the quality is excellent. The best part was that I got to pick out the style and colours myself. I wanted blue and brown stripes and Kendra was great to work with me to find it. He looks so handsome in it!!
Now that Christmas is over, the real estate market will start to heat right back up again. Families who are looking to move before the start of the next school year often begin their house hunting in the spring. It has been my experience that the months of February through to the end of June are the busiest and March, April and May are the best months to hold an open house. The weather is starting to thaw and people who were cooped up for much of the winter are anxious to get out and start looking at what’s out there. It’s spring fever baby!
The Realtors at my office have collectively decided to have an open house blitz one weekend every month commencing in February. I’m really looking forward to it. I have this gut feeling that this spring, the real estate market in this area will be booming. At least I hope so – I’ve still got Christmas to pay for afterall…
‘Till next time,
