I was out photographing downtown Woodstock the other day for Rezide Properties, a local custom builder, when I ran across this crazy contraption. It is a 4 wheeled vehicle, powered by people pedaling from the chairs on either side of the trolly.The vehicle is run by a fellow named Ellis. He and I...
For several years homes have been selling within minutes of hitting the market. The low inventory of homes and low interest rates drove buyers into a near frenzy, competing with one another and pushing up home prices. Home sellers got used to homes selling the day their homes hit the market. How ...
I read today that prognosticators are indicating interest rates may exceed 10% next year. I also read where those same folks are saying home values could decline 15% next year. The former is not great, but the latter could be very good for buyers. Not bad for sellers either since home values are ...
Interest rates are going up. On the news this morning the talking heads were saying the Fed might raise interest rates again this month by a full percentage point to combat the 9.1% inflation rate.

There is the renaissance Fair just south of town. The ocean is 4-5 hours away. The mountains are an ho...
The picture above is one of my favorites. It was taken at my brother-in-laws home while I was holding newborn chick. It always reminds me of the phrase, you are in good hands. It could also say something about being chicken. Both of these ideas were with me yesterday as I underwent some dental su...
I was just thinking of a past movie title, It's a mad, mad, mad world! While the movie was funny, the current real estate market is not. I have never seen so many obstacles in the way of someone buying a home.Low housing inventory levels have been with us for a while now. Well before the pandemic...
Wow. Taking on this months challenge has been a...challenge. Reliving the past is hard. So, in this post I will talk about my professional life and how I ended up where I am today.So, as a senior in high school, I knew I was going to be an engineer. Probably a mechanical engineer. I loved to take...
