Hits: 11You had plenty to be worried about over the last 10 years including ‘will my home ever sell’ or ‘will I ever see my 401-K regain the level it was at before the storm’. You didn’t know if you’d ever get what you paid for when you finally sold that house. You would have […]Continue reading

Recent results remind us of the old days
Hits: 7When you are shopping for a home under $350,000, where do you look? Would you be happy with a 900 square foot 2/1 condo near downtown with one off-street parking place? How about new construction on the fringe of the metro Santa Fe area, with a small yard and a garage, with new appliances […]Continue reading
Where are you going?
Hits: 8Predictions are risky and can be very embarrassing if you are wildly incorrect. But they are free to all comers. Anyone can predict the sky will fall or who will win the next election. There is not really a penalty for being wrong, is there? I will tell you where we are going if […]Continue reading
And down the stretch they come
Hits: 6Wrapping up November is bittersweet as the year is now almost expired and our memories and scars are still fresh enough to wonder how it went so quickly. The year began with realistic hopes of flying high into the record books as the year when we finally shrugged off all the baggage from the […]Continue reading
The world of Santa Fe real estate is Flat
Hits: 7Pick your own ideal angle of repose, but mostly its flat around here when you gather the numbers. Five months in the books for 2016 came up as almost identical to the same five months of 2015. Sales are strong in the lowest price ranges and the best of the rest takes some time […]Continue reading

Hits: 4That may be a lame title…we are working on it? You may decide how lame, but the point is that if your head is buried in something like sand, or paperwork, or personal problems, or worldly problems such as our POTUS election cycle and the sick drama it features, you might not know that […]Continue reading
Just try to top this, 2015!
Hits: 6Literally speaking, this past year of 2015 was the best best 2015 ever!! In all my days I have never seen such a 2015 and its unlikely it will ever be matched. It was a unique year in so many ways. It is the only 2015 we will see in our lifetimes. It was 15 […]Continue reading
Proper grammar can’t help me now!
Hits: 5If only I had stayed in school for another couple dozen years. Then I might be able to convey what it is I want to say. I usually assume it is my lack of communication skills when someone I am talking with does not understand. I almost never assume it is their lack of […]Continue reading
Hits: 5Now and again I post a link to an article that seems more informative than most I see related to real estate. And the MacArthur Foundation has posted an article that puts the national mood into perspective on the housing market and the importance of people’s confidence in the recovery. It is worth reading […]Continue reading
Auld Lang Syne (in June?)
Hits: 6A song of goodbye and farewell, of happy trails, sayonara, adios, ciao… a song marking the end of a time and the grand hopes of the beginning of another time… Thank you Robert Burns. We have arrived at the end, the bitter end, of the deep and dark recession that has buried Santa Fe […]Continue reading
