Winter arrived just in time for the Winterfest in Coralville this year. Until last week it didn't look like we were going to get a winter in Iowa this year. Fortunately for all of us the weather gods  smiled down on us and it is suitably cold with a fair amount of snow for this Sunday's annual ce...

Generally January is the month when I ask myself what made me think relocating to Iowa was a good idea. That's every year except this year that is! Today I took time out from my market reports and spent some time out in the sunshine. Brown Deer Golf Course in Coralville is a two minute drive from...

Home sales in Coralville were down slightly in 2011, as you'll know if you read this post a couple of days ago. Surprisingly it was single family homes that took the biggest hit, with single family home sales in Coralville down 20% compared to 2010. Fortunately zero lot sales were up by 46% or th...

Coralville didn't do quite as well as Iowa City in 2011 with home sales down a bit compared to 2010. 274 homes sold in Coralville from January through December 2011 compared to 298 in 2010. The good news is that just like Iowa City the second half of the year was stronger than the first half, as ...

After looking at North Liberty on Monday, it's time to look at what's up in the housing market  in Coralville today. My market reports have been woefully lacking in the last few months due to time constrictions and I missed October. I'm going for two for one today again and catching up on both Oc...

After reporting on the continuing positive trend in the real estate market in Iowa City I thought it was about time that I took a look at the other areas I service. Today it's Coralville's turn. The good news is that home sales are also up in Coralville. In fact home sales in Coralville this year...

The Coralville Center for the Performing Arts has become one of my favorite places to write about when it comes to my posts about what to do in the Iowa City area at the weekends. There is so much variation in their program that I end up introducing something new almost every week. Flavors: A Fea...

Right after we spend a month filled with scariness and spookiness we move right into the Holiday Season. Funny how that happens, don't you think? You only need to switch on your TV to see what I mean. Talk about what a difference a day makes, or in the case of local events, a week! Last week Rock...

The North Ridge Neighborhood unsurprisingly borders on North Ridge Park. It's North of I-80 and on the North West side of Coralville. We're having beautiful Autumn weather in Iowa this year and last week I took a trip out to my favorite park in Coralville to take some photos of the park and the s...

With September behind us it's been a great month to take a look at the first three quarters of the year to figure out what's going on in the real estate market in our area. Last week I looked at Iowa City. Today I'm looking at Coralville. I put together two graphs to show home sales and prices fo...

The Rocky Horror Show is a Halloween favorite. This weekend you can choose to see the freaked out musical performed at the CCPA in Coralville or go the more standard route and take in the cult movie at the Englert or the Bijou Theatre in Iowa City. (Although I'm not sure the word standard has any...

It was a beautiful Fall day in Coralville today. Went over to my listing on Oakleaf St to check everything was in order for the showings tomorrow. (Yes, plural, more than one showing. Things are definitely picking up around here lately). While I was there I couldn't resist taking a shot of this m...

Coralville IA Real Estate Market: Home Sales in the 2nd and 3rd Quarter 2011 Yesterday I looked at home sales in Iowa City, today its Coralville's turn. The data is from the Iowa City MLS and shows home sales in Coralville in the 2nd and 3rd quarter. This year it makes sense to look at data from ...

The CCPA had it's open house on Saturday celebrating the National Arts & Humanities Month. It was about time I visited the place I drive past daily and blog about all the time. And with them having an open house in the luxury condominiums above the Theater I knew it would be worth my while to mak...

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 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...
