The 4th of July Parade in Coralville was once again a huge success. The hot weather did not slow things down at all. Although I wonder how it much fun it was for those in costume, like Santa Claus or Herky, (bet you never thought you'd see those two mentioned in one sentence, did you?)  Three of ...

The 12th Ave extension in Coralville and the S Jones Blvd expansion have resulted in connecting Coralville and North Liberty in a way they weren't connected before. Much of the boundary for the two towns runs along Forevergreen Rd. In fact North Central Junior High School is North of Forevergreen...

The real estate market in Iowa City is heating up for spring, you know that already, I wrote about that last week. How about Coralville? If you follow my market reports you'll know that they don't move in tandem. Coralville is very different to Iowa City and had a harder time during the downturn....

The weather is anything but typical in Iowa at the moment. Usually at this time of the year we're still all wrapped up waiting for the warmer weather... Not so this year. This March the temps have regularly been in the high 60's and 70's. In fact pretty soon I'm sure we'll have weather forecaster...

It's good news all around today. Not only are home sales up in Iowa City again this month, they're also up in Coralville. This is especially good news in Coralville as home sales took a bit of a dip in January. I figured it was a glitch, it's good to see I was right. 11 homes sold in Coralville i...

7 homes sold in Coralville in January 2012 compared to 15 homes sold in January 2011. If that seems like a bit of a drastic drop, only 3 sold in January 2010, which kind of puts things more in perspective. In fact I went back a few years and the low single digits is more typical for the last few ...
