It has been a crazy spring in Real Estate- at least here in Richmond. Everyone I know who is tied to the Real Estate biz seems to be busier than they have been in years.
And seriously- mortgage rates hit 3.67% a few weeks ago (they went up to 3.71 again… blast!) so people who are used to renting are finding that it’s actually a lot cheaper on your monthly budget to buy a house right now.
A few weeks ago, I helped some people sell their gem of a house on Sylvan Rd in Westover Hills (at right).
Easiest. Transaction. Ever.
Kennon & Sarah, the owners, were some of the easiest people to work with. We struck up a fast friendship over living in strange and far off places- they having lived and worked in Nigeria for a spell and us in Indonesia. We also happen to share the woes and wonders of living with a 3 year old boy.
Over the several years they owned the house they did all the right things to set it up to sell quickly and for a good price.
Sarah happens to have an amazing eye for interior design:
One of my favorite parts of my job is getting to give a loan to someone whenever a house sells.
This house provided a loan for Emrie, a farmer in the small Eastern European country of Georgia.
Emrie will use her loan to build a greenhouse so that she can grow vegetables through the winter and earn additional income by selling them in the market.
