If you haven't already registered for Anime Iowa 2011 you probably want to get on it right away. Last year I found out about Anime Iowa totally by accident when hotel rooms in the area became a scarce commodity and clients I was working with had to stay in Cedar Rapids! What will makes things eve...
33 Homes sold in Iowa City in March to date. The number of homes pending or contingent rose to 122 from 111 last week. Pending or contingent means they are homes that have accepted offers and may still have contingencies on them to fulfill before they close. There are currently 556 active listing...
27 homes sold in North Liberty IA in February 2011 compared to 15 in February 2010. That's an 80% rise in home sales for the month of February. It seems North Liberty is back after a few dodgy months since the tax credit expired last year. Spring is bringing out the buyers in North Liberty and th...
It was Spring Break last week and a quiet week when it came to home sales in Iowa City.  The number of homes under contract rose to 111. That's up from 101 last week and not bad for a quiet week! We should expect lots of action in the coming weeks. This is the busiest time of the year when it com...
8 homes sold in Coralville IA in February 2011 compared to 11  in February 2010. In January the year over year numbers were up. In February they're down. I guess we need to wait for this month's numbers to figure out whether the Coralville housing market is trending up or down. I'll be watching h...
21 homes sold in Iowa City in February 2011 compared to 30 in February 2010. The numbers are a little misleading I think. If you look at my weekly real estate market updates you'll know that the numbers of homes under contract is rising. A sure sign that there is a lot of activity in the Iowa Cit...
It's mid March and the real estate market in Iowa City is hopping. If you've been following my posts you'll know I've been saying for weeks now that things are picking up. 101 homes under contract. That's a number that will get your attention I think. We're into the triple digits - Definitely a g...
Can't believe I missed the change to daylight savings time - Again - And it took me until noon today to figure out that some clocks in my home are running correctly and others aren't! Just as well the powers that be do this change over thing on a Sunday AND that this Sunday is quieter than usual ...
Another busy week. If you think it's too early to list your home. Think again. Buyers are out in force, even if it is still cold out there and doesn't seem much like house hunting weather. It seems my message about the busy market is being heard, because I added another two listings to my reperto...
For a while now we've been watching the building of the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts on the corner of 5th St and 12th Ave. Last summer it was just a hole in the ground. This summer is the scheduled opening. It seems building a Performing Arts Center is no different to building a regu...
