Are You Thinking About Moving in 2015?

If you are one of those people who have toyed with the idea of moving this year it’s time to start really thinking about it. The market is really heating up and rates are as low as ever!

The graph below shows the sales from 2014. The numbers listed below tell you when the house closed which means it generally went under contract 30-60 days earlier. Get your house ready by the middle of March-June to hit the biggest months of sales. With the low interest rates it’s a great time to buy and sell.

Contact me at andrea.summerhays@gmail.com with questions about selling or buying a house.

The Rising Empress

My girls had the opportunity to be involved with a focus group for The Rising Empress. I was so impressed with the products. If you haven’t heard of it it’s a book of fairy tales, with trading cards for young girls. It’s beautifully illustrated, and is a tremendous way for girls to interact as they collect the different Empresses and their powers. The stories also instill important values, and encourage young girls to believe in themselves, love themselves, find their talents, and be kind to others. As they collect the cards they can go onto the Rising Empress website and research the empresses and find ways to turn the evil ones good again. This is something you won’t want to miss. It’s a great gift this holiday season!

Here is a short video about it. Rising Empress Video

Two Great Children’s Books

I stumbled across these two books at the library this week and I wanted to share them with you just in case you didn’t know about them either.

The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt

Very funny story about a boy named Duncan. “Poor Duncan just wants to color. But when he opens his box of crayons, he finds only letters, all saying the same thing: His crayons have had enough! They quit! Beige Crayon is tired of playing second fiddle to Brown Crayon. Black wants to be used for more than just outlining. Blue needs a break from coloring all those bodies of water. And Orange and Yellow are no longer speaking—each believes he is the true color of the sun.” Great gift for any child since most of them have a box of crayons. I think they find it funny imagining their own box of crayons may have feelings.

Ish by Peter H. Reynolds

Peter Reynolds also wrote the Little Pea and the Little Hoot which are family favorites. Ish is about a boy named Ramon who is a “creative spirit that learns that thinking “ish-ly” is far more wonderful than getting it right.” Ish really touched me because it’s about a boy who likes to draw and how comments from his brother make him second guess his skills. I think we can all relate to second guessing our skills. As an artist I have felt this way before. I do remember an art teacher I had years ago that told me it’s about making my work of art look like a painting or a drawing rather than like a photograph which is a little like the Ish-way of thinking. Perfect gift for a child that likes art.Screenshot 2014-12-05 16.59.42

The Best Time to Move!

One of the most common questions I get as a Realtor is when is the best time to list my house? Here is a graph that illustrates which month the most homes sold in 2013. This means an offer was accepted on the home 30-60 days before. So start getting your homes ready! March-May is coming quickly.
