Taylor County Real Estate Market Update

The real estate market in Taylor County is definitely improving. Our phones are ringing off the hook. Our sales associates are showing properties every day. We have three active agents in the office, and all four of us have received offers on properties this week. My newest agent, who just started this week, has received two offers on properties and is working on two new listings; not bad for a new agent for her first three days on the job. I would say things are looking up for 2010. People are realizing that this really is a good time to buy. If you are interested in buying or selling, check out our website at Cheers!

January's Wrath

Florida, the Sunshine State, has suffered inordinately cold, cold, cold weather with overnight freezing temperatures consistently for over a week now. The longest cold streak that I can remember. Things are starting to warm up a little bit; at least, we don't have to leave our pipes dripping tonight. Even South Florida has been suffering from cold weather this past week as well. My daughter in Miami said she was going to have to buy boots and set aside her flip flops for awhile. Now that is cold! HOWEVER, we aren't as cold in Florida as our friends to the north. No blizzards, icy roads, or snow to shovel here. And Spring will arrive soon. The Sunshine State is still the place to be!
