Ashland Short Sales & Foreclosures If you live in Ashland and have been thinking about selling a home, or have thought about buying a home in Ashland, foreclosures and short sales are a playing a key roll in what type of value your home will sell for, or how much you will spend on your new home. To give you a feel for what the Ashland home market is looking like as of the past 3 months ending April 30, 2010, 85.1% of the homes that sold that were "normal" sales, while the Ashland foreclosures and short sales made up 14.9% of homes that sold.    As you look at the difference in values between the "normal" sales and the "distressed" sales like foreclosures and short sales, its important to know what each of these means to you. A "normal" sale is one where the seller has equity in their ho...

One of our favorite local getaway spots is Howard Prairie Lake, only 20 minutes outside of Ashland Oregon. Opening day for the resort is April 15th, and we can hardly wait until it warms up a bit more and we can put our boat on the lake for the season. We'll still be up there checking things out again in the meantime, and maybe even the Trout Fishing Season Opener on April 24th.   See you out there!

NPR does story on Oregon Shakespeare Festival It was a good day of news for our little town of Ashland Oregon. NPR Weekend edition did a niece story about how even in this economy, theOregon Shakespeare Festival had a record setting season last year. Fearing the worst, they cut the budget last year, and against predictions sold more tickets than expected. You can read and listen to the news story HERE. Now, I have to decide if I am going to break up my comments on this subject into multiple parts, or just rant.  If you go to the news story on NPR.com, you can scroll to the bottom and read the comments of the listeners. Let me start by saying that being able to post anonymous comments on the internet is one of the worst features of the internet. The vile that is expressed on some commen...

Ashland Oregon is Like a Dream... You'll Never Want to Leave!  At least that is what the Washington Post had to say about Ashland Oregon.  Located in the beautiful Rogue Valley in Southern Oregon just off Interstate 5, Ashland Oregon was chosen as one of the Thousand Places to Visit Before You Die in the best selling travel guide and named the #2 small arts town in America.  The Rogue River, Crater Lake National Park, the surrounding mountains, old-growth forests, and vineyards - in the sunny part of the state - are just some of the attractions to this small town.  Ashland Oregon is also home to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, which is acclaimed as one of the top five regional theaters in the country by Time magazine. Outside Magazine named Ashland Oregon one of the top ten small towns...

The great thing about Spring is that not only does it mean love is in the air...but the people who are looking to buy houses start getting the springtime bug. All Realtors know, and can feel the added buzz that comes with sunny days. Open houses are better attended, the phone rings more, the excitement level is higher. I have this idea that I think one day may be able to be studied. If there was a way to measure which days houses were shown and mash that with weather data, I would really like to have proof that sunny days are actually busier than cloudy days.  The scientist part of me wants to see proof of what the feeling side of believes to be true. Happy March everyone...and here's to a good spring.

  Howard Prairie Lake in Southern Oregon just outside Ashland Oregon is such a beautiful spot.  We love to go fishing at this lake and it is only about 45-50 minutes away from Medford Oregon.  The only bad thing about it being so close to town is that many other folks know about it and do not take care of it.  There is now no overnight camping on the back side of Howard Prairie Lake due to idiots trashing everything, chopping down trees, breaking glass beer bottles, tearing up the road, and much more.  I have been going up there for years and now no longer can but I have great memories up there.  I could still go up there but I don't like camp sites I go camp to get away from all the people and enjoy the beauty. This is a great little lake to catch fish I catch many trout and a lot of ...

Southern Oregon University which is where I played basketball and graduated won second place in wrestling and crowned two National Champions.  Mitchell Lofstedt slammed through the competition all year and set team records along the way. Barry Johnson won at 141 pounds he had the task of wrestling his team mate and won in overtime.  What a great feeling for the win and heartbreaking loss for Wirkuty.  Great job to all the Southern Oregon Coaches and wrestlers.   Cascade Christian boys basketball team finishes fourth at state great job fellas. Phoenix boys basketball team just beat #1 ranked Sweet Home to find themselves in the state tournament, go represent Southern Oregon Hoops guys! St. Mary's girls fell in the championship game to Portland Christian who was a special group of players...

      This is my new email signature card for Coldwell Banker I think it is a great idea for everyone to have one of these as it shows all your contact information. When an email goes out to a client you want them to see an email signature, it looks professional and is a great way to top off an email.

Colbie Caillat Performs in Ashland Oregon.  Colbie Caillat has been the quintessential California girl.  Her idea of a good time is hanging out with her friends at a beach bonfire or hopping in the car listening to tunes while driving up the Pacific Coast Highway. On "Coco," her Universal Republic debut, the songs mirror Caillat's low-key, refreshing style.  Armed with her acoustic guitar and her dusky vocals, she evokes the same gentle, yet spirited style of her musical influences John Mayer, Bob Marley, Lauryn Hill and The Weepies. Befitting the organic style of her music, Caillat's fan base has grown by word of mouth, one person at a time.  Last year, she began posting her songs on her Myspace.com; tunes like "Bubbly," a delightful confection about romance, and "Tailor Made," Caillat...
