Even without waiting for everyone who closed today to update their listings on the MLS, the good news is that home sales for September in Iowa City are already up compared to last year. 37 homes sold in Iowa City this month compared to 34 in September 2010. Keep in mind that number is likely to r...
If you haven't checked out the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts yet then this coming Saturday is your opportunity to catch up on that. In celebration of  the National Arts & Humanities Month the CCPA is holding an open house Saturday October 1, from 1.00pm - 5.00pm. It will be a great op...
This week I was out showing homes on the east side of Iowa City in the Scott Boulevard East Neighborhood. It was a dark and dismal day, the not so great side of Fall in Iowa. Usually when I'm early for an appointment, (which I generally am), I like to take photos of the neighborhood. It seemed on...
We have a lot of parks in Coralville and Iowa City. So many that you'll never have far to go before you bump into the next one. My photos today are of S.T. Morrison Park in downtown Coralville. You can access Morrison Park from 5th St, although technically it's on 7th St. On 5th St is where you'l...

The word is out and year to year we have more folks travel quite a ways to be part of the big July 4th celebration with us here in Coralville. At the...
As we march towards the end of the month it's high time I catch up with my market reports for August. Home sales were up in Iowa City and Coralville in August 2011 compared to 2010. Now it's time to look at North Liberty. The good news is that North Liberty also had a good month in August with ho...
The face of Coralville is changing in a big way. Yesterday I visited the show and tell walking tour on the Iowa River Landing and was amazed at all the changes in the pipeline. No signs of a struggling economy here!  This right on the heels of the opening of the Coralville Center for the Performi...
If you follow my blog you'll know that the Iowa City real estate market has picked up in the last couple of months, with home sales up in both July and August and looking good for September too. On September 16 the Iowa Association of Realtors published their market report for homes sold in Iowa ...
What exactly is a zero lot Denise? This is a question I get a lot from clients relocating to the Iowa City area. It's a term that doesn't seem to be used anywhere other than Iowa.  A zero lot is a duplex style home where the owners share a wall. Each owner is sole-owner of the unit they own, incl...
