We believe in the power of giving back to our community.  As we welcome the blossoming spring season, it’s an opportune time to reflect on the importance of our collective role in supporting others.  In this month’s newsletter, we explore ways to support our neighbors, shine light on the latest trends, sustainable designs, and updates in the real estate market.

The real estate market continues to show resilience with sellers increasingly getting back into the market, giving buyers more choices. Median prices are stable to lower, as sellers tick down listing prices and days-on-market inch upward. As we move further into spring, we anticipate more real estate activity overall, with a careful eye on the economy. 

Now that spring has sprung, this is the perfect time to tackle those home improvement projects you’ve been putting off. Whether it’s refreshing your landscaping or updating your kitchen, small upgrades can make a big difference in enhancing your home’s value. As the weather warms up, don’t forget to schedule routine maintenance for your HVAC & other home systems. Proper maintenance not only ensures your systems run efficiently, but also extends their lifespan, saving money in the long run.

Thank you for allowing us to be your trusted real estate advisors. If you have questions or if there’s anything we can assist you with, please don’t hesitate to reach out. Here’s to a successful spring season filled with growth in our community and the real estate market!

With gratitude,

Ken & Molly
