Alabaster Alabama is a great place to live and is still within commuting distance to downtown Birmingham. Home sale numbers in Alabaster remained stable in January with 28 (24 closed in November and 28 closed in December). Fifteen of the 28 sales were foreclosed properties.  Many were sold at hug...
If you look at JUST the number of homes that closed, January was not a good month for Real Estate sales in Homewood.  Only 9 homes actually sold and closed.  Since there are currently 306 homes on the market, you could say we have a 34 month supply of inventory!   Now having said that - all is no...
Wondered what happened to Toni's Blog posts??  Well, real estate just plain got in the way.  Back in November, I found a great deal on a foreclosed property here in Hoover Alabama, that I just HAD TO HAVE.  Along with the excitement of moving, tweaking the new house to be "move in ready", Christm...

There are several things to consider when buying a new home.  There are lots of Homes to Buy in Hoover, Alabama.  Some are new and others have been previously owned. Some people I work with only want to buy a newly constructed home.  I spoke to a teenager once whose parents had relocated several ...
Fall is definitely here.  The trees in Hoover Alabama are BEAUTIFUL. Soon it will be Thanksgiving which is only 5 weeks before the end of 2008. During September and October the TV News was flooded with talk of ecomonic crisis!!  It was really hard to focus on all the GOOD Things happening in our ...
There are two things I like about fall: the cooler temperatures and the colorful leaves.   Although today saw temperatures in the 70s' we have had several cold days in the last couple of weeks.
