If you drive up and down 1st Ave in Coralville as often as I do you'll know there are some serious changes going on at the Iowa River Landing. This is the area just south of I-80 and very close to the Marriott on E 9th St. Well, if you're curious as to what is going on there, Thursday September 2...

After about five minutes of seeing this little guy out of the corner of my eye I decided to get up and try and take a photo of him. This tree is right outside the window of my home office and I felt sure as soon as I started scrummaging around for the camera he would take off. I was wrong. At lea...

Today I decided to take a quick look to see what's going on in the Coralville real estate market. Of course not nearly as many homes sell in Coralville as in Iowa City. (Hardly surprising since Coralville has a population of less than 20,000  compared to Iowa City's 67,000). Anyhow, with the mark...

2236 Oakleaf St in Coralville is an exceptionally nice zero lot on an extra large lot. This split Foyer home has a nice open feel with vaulted ceilings in living, dining and kitchen area. The living room leads to the deck with a view of the awesome back yard. (No kidding, it's the best yard on th...

Summer is on its way out and things are winding down for me after my busiest year in real estate to date. Time now for me to share some of the photos I took of neighborhoods I visited with folks relocating to the Iowa City area these last few months. I'll start with the Brown Deer Neighborhood. O...

Real estate is local. I'm sure you've heard that before. I figure it's worth repeating today. I switched on the TV this morning to doom and gloom in the real estate market. Nationally the number of existing home sales in July dropped. Not in Iowa City it didn't. Or Coralville for that matter. The...

24 homes sold in Coralville in May 2011 compared to 40 in May 2010. After starting off the year well the last couple of months have shown a decline in home sales in Coralville. This is pretty much in line with economic sentiment as a whole, but is somewhat surprising to me as generally the real e...

This morning I decided a quick look at what's going on in the Coralville real estate market would be a good idea. 2011 has been a bit volatile up to now and with the spring market in full swing is a good time to "take the pulse" of how the market is trending. 15 homes sold in May to date. There a...

Spring has finally sprung in Coralville, Iowa. With daylight savings time the evenings are light longer and best of all they're even starting to get warmer now. It was a long, hard winter this year. This is my first shot in a long while where I didn't get cold fingers! I'd just come out of the Ol...

If you haven't already registered for Anime Iowa 2011 you probably want to get on it right away. Last year I found out about Anime Iowa totally by accident when hotel rooms in the area became a scarce commodity and clients I was working with had to stay in Cedar Rapids! What will makes things eve...

8 homes sold in Coralville IA in February 2011 compared to 11  in February 2010. In January the year over year numbers were up. In February they're down. I guess we need to wait for this month's numbers to figure out whether the Coralville housing market is trending up or down. I'll be watching h...

Another busy week. If you think it's too early to list your home. Think again. Buyers are out in force, even if it is still cold out there and doesn't seem much like house hunting weather. It seems my message about the busy market is being heard, because I added another two listings to my reperto...

For a while now we've been watching the building of the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts on the corner of 5th St and 12th Ave. Last summer it was just a hole in the ground. This summer is the scheduled opening. It seems building a Performing Arts Center is no different to building a regu...
