Hi everyone!

Fall is just around the corner and with that comes what many people believe is a slow down in the market. Read here why that may not be true anymore and what that means for you if you’re thinking about putting your home on the market.

Here’s a good article about the grief pricing your house too high will bring you. I’m always available to prepare a quick analysis of home sales and listings in your neighborhood to give you a better understanding of what your home could sell for.

This article gives great inside scoop on how much the home buying process really costs. A down payment isn’t the only thing you’ll need to save for so it’s important to be aware of these added costs.

USA Today features a good article reminding buyers of some key points to remember before buying a home. As a realtor, it’s my job to point these out to you as well but it’s always a good idea to keep this knowledge fresh.

For events coming up this weekend check here. Since September is chock full of events, I’ve highlighted a few early so you can mark your calendar. Solomons Plein Air Festival from Sept. 12-17. September 14, from 6-8 features a “Sunset Quick Draw” where artists will have two hours to produce a work, followed by judging and sale of the pieces.
