There has not been much activity here in Sunwood for quite a while but the few homes that have come on the market have sold quickly.  Prices have gone up & interest rates are still very low.  I hope you'll give me a call if you, or someone you know, is wanting to buy or sell a home in this general area.  Thank you for your support!

There is alot of conflicting info available thru the media about prices & sales. Some say prices are up compared to such-and-such date, others say prices are down compared to other dates.  The same with the number of sales.  It all depends on what information is used & what dates are compared.  We all know that numbers can be skewed depending on what slant the goal is to have.  Sometimes "median" and "average" prices are used to show an increasing or declining market.  These 2 are practically useless, though, in determining the value of homes.  The best way to determine your homes value is, of course, to look at recent sales in your own neighborhood...if there are any recent ones.  
I hope that we've seen the bulk of the short-sale and foreclosed homes already, but that may not be the case.  Until the unemployment situation improves, I think we're in for more distressed properties. 
There have been alot of changes in guidelines for lenders, escrows, appraisers, etc. so it's especially important to work with local, experienced agents & lenders.  There's various loan, loan modification and refinance programs with specific requirements.

FORECLOSURE INFO:  the IRS now has a website available with information for those facing foreclosure of their homes. Go to to read the info. Also, see the info I provided in the "Real Estate Information" section regarding some of the real estate & economic programs now available for homeowners/buyers.  I also provided other governmental website for you to learn more.

I hope you'll get in touch with me if you're thinking of selling.  And don't forget, I can sell you your next home, too!  Let me know if you want to see what is on the market.  It saves alot of time if you concentrate your search to the homes in the price range & with the features you are looking for...instead of spending all day looking at open houses most of which won't be in your price range or be what you're looking for anyway.  Whether you want something local or out-of-state, I can help!!!  I greatly appreciate your support & your referrals to friends & relatives.
Give me a call or email me if you would like more information or a personal consultation.
***Also, ask me about the program I have available for buyers & sellers...a discount to Lowe's for my clients!

See "Real Estate Information" section for pertinent buyer/seller real estate articles & information.
