Don't Wait Buyers--- If It Feels Right--- It is.

I love helping buyers find their dream home. I don't always love when my buyers don't see the right one, right away. As a Realtor, many times we "know" the house before you do. A great buyer's agent should ask enough questions about your likes and dislikes and get to know how you live in a home so that when "The One" comes along we are ready to jump as quickly as you are!

The worst is when we "know" it and you don't see it until it is under contract.

Of course, I would never tell you you are missing out because that is rude and it isn't my job to talk you into a home. The thing is, this typically becomes the turning point in home buying. This is when you as the buyer realize that sometimes waiting is the worst thing you can do.

Like the time when I know I had to have this Leopard Coat I LOVED but knew husband doesn't care for animal prints so I left it at the store. Then I thought about it all night. I even dreamed about it. The nex…

Baby It's Cold Outside


Baby did it just get witching, cold outside or what? Nestled on the East Coast, our winter hasn't really been that brutal yet. Last year by this time, snow had fallen quite a bit but this year many of us have been asking where is the white stuff? We still haven't seen any yet---- Although---- it has been promised by the Weather Channel. Poo. 

We do have a trick we are testing though. While in Rogersville, Tennessee last year, we purchased a Tennessee State Flag. As soon as we put that guy up- it got cold and snow blew and blew. We finally took it down because we became so superstitious about the flag. It was time for Spring by then. 

What's hanging up outside our front door right now? You guess it - The Tennessee Flag. We really want snow here. 

Growing up in Memphis, Tennessee, I always loved when they would predict snow and most people in the city all rushed out to buy eggs and milk. The stores would be packed with people happy for the news of a couple of days nestled in their homes watching movies, cuddling up under covers and baking cookies in the oven. After watching the news that runs 24/7 on WREG Channel 3, the bright blue precipitation that moments before in Arkansas had fallen, would turn to pink indication sleet and then turn green. Green means rain and no one wants green to fall after planning on school being closed and forgetting to check over homework and swilling your third glass of wine. 

Welp, in Williamsburg the blue on the radar normally stays blue as it makes makes it way from Richmond and through New Kent County. A lot of times school gets cancelled and I fire up the kitchen oven: bake cookies and start a pie. Drain the bottle of wine and sleep in the next day. I love winter when this is what you get. 

The Weather Channel doesn't promise snow here anytime soon but we are bundled up ---- waiting.
