This month I wanted to lead with something different. (We will get to the real estate news in a moment ;)) everyday life can be a struggle between the good and bad the yin-and-yang we all want to be better and strive to remove our character flaws. This is a daily event and it start with recognizing what you want to excel at for me I think the list here is most relevant:
1- #fatherhood - becoming the best partner possible.
2- #husband - this should perhaps be number 1 but placing our spouse 1st we are in essence making this the "umbrella" #1
3- #health - take time to care for your self, work on what you feel is important (body, mind, soul, spirit)
4- #career - work with a unshakable determination and dedication towards your goals. Never give up and serve your client better and at a higher level than you best peers and in that act alone you will differentiate your product and service.
5- #friendship - for me this is about spending time and energy to foster those relationships that are important. Trying to take care of your friends can never be a waste of time. Caring for others is a selfless act that will pay your soul handsomely in peace and solace. We all go to sleep alone, no matter who is out beds.
give your self 10 minutes to watch this video I came across recently.
It is very impact and delivers a strong message! My gratitude is for each one of you and the opportunity to with with you on your real estate en-devours. Your trust and confidence that you place in me is

Inventory is low prices are up and we remain in a strong sellers market. Low interest rates are keeping buyers happy and purchasing homes at a record pace. Demand almost always subsides every year between July and January. It’s only when a counter trend occurs that we have a story. When judging your bushels of apples, you want to view the year-over-year trend. Sales in August were 8.6% higher than a year ago, which understates the real year-over-year improvement. There was one more business day last year, which brings our real improvement closer to 13%. This August accounted for the third highest sales volume in ARMLS reporting history, surpassed only by 2004 and 2005, with only 266 fewer sales than ‘04. With 690 more sales this year than last, 2019 sales year-to-date have now surpassed 2018. Looking ahead to how the year might end, I’m willing to go out on a limb and say the prognosticators were wrong back in January (I may or may not have been one of them). 2019 sales will surpass 2018 in both sales volume and price.
In a recent article I saw this headline!
"Phoenix Replaces Las Vegas As Top City in Annual Gains!" -
prices are up up up! I have to ask how long can this uptrend last we have been in appreciating market for 9 years... All markets rise and fall and perhaps we are primed for a pullback? Just going out on a limb with that one.
That leads me to the recent flier I put together below and some commentary about the "ibuyers" offerpad, zillow, knock & open door along with the traditional wholesalers out in the market
