The Calm Before The Storm. This is what Coralville looked like today. Looks like we're heading for what is expected to be the worst storm of the season with 8 to 12 inches of snow fall expected by Wednesday. Eternal optimist as I am I'm hoping they're wrong. It's not like it would be the the firs...
January is almost done and I'm catching up with my market reports for December. (Yes, I've been that busy!) After the Iowa Association of Realtors released its Housing Trends Report for Iowa last week I caught up with market statistics for December 2010 in Iowa City and Coralville. Today it's Nor...
Today was a "balmy" 27°F in Coralville. Not a fan of winter I thought I would brave the not so cold temperatures and visit the Coralville WinterFest with my still pretty new Canon 2ti. It's been a while since I've taken any real photos of the outdoors. In the warmer months I'm out all the time. I...

We all love our milestones don't we? This week AR made it to 200,000 members and today, (my birthday no less), I made it to 200,000 points. I have no idea what it is about the points here on AR, but I can tell you that I feel like I've achieved something. What exactly? Hard to say, let me see if ...
Spring is just around the corner. I know, it doesn't seem like it, but let's shake that off the winter blues this weekend and get into the mood for spring. What's got me so excited you ask? Well, that would be the Iowa City Area Home and Builder Show that's taking place this weekend at the Coralv...
I want to ask the seller for closing costs - So how much are closing costs in Iowa City anyway Denise? This is another one of those questions that comes up a lot lately. Mostly of course with first time home buyers, for obvious reasons since it's the first time they buy a house. This of course is...
