I know it is time to start my Christmas List, so here goes…
My own personal list is very short – not even enough to mention as I am truly grateful for the wonderful family, friends and coworkers that I have in my life and the great clients I have had through the years. I am grateful for a nice place to live and wonderful neighbors.
However, I know some people who are in need so my wish list is for them…
Wish 1: I wish you could keep the mortgage rates at 5 percent or even lower if you can manage it. There are buyers that really want to buy homes and for them my wish is the wonderful value they can unwrap for their family.
Wish 2: My second wish is for the millennials to understand that for sellers not every move is a happy one and that older folks have other concerns than making their home look like HGTV. Many are on a limited budget or cannot get the help they need to update their home to model home status.
Wish 3: My third wish is just the opposite – for sellers that are able to see the home they want to sell with fresh eyes and look at it from the viewpoint of younger buyers – no one wants to move into a house that looks like grandma’s house – even grandma! Perhaps there is common ground here somewhere!
Wish 4: I wish that builders would build more comfortable and popular priced senior condominiums. Seniors who want to sell their current home want to be able to put some cash away – not spend it all or more on the next property.
Wish 5: I know I ask for this every year, but this year especially, with new forms of violence all over the globe, I wish for peace on earth.
Wish 6: I am signing off on my column as I am fresh out of ideas. Over the years I have written articles on everything I can think of regarding real estate but now it is time for someone else to put a fresh spin on it so…I wish them luck!
Santa, I know that there is a lot here and it’s a big list, but really I’ve been a very good girl all year, so I hope you can deliver.
I want to express my sincere thanks to all of the clients that I worked with this year and in the past. I appreciate any referral that could be sent my way for 2019, as I am still selling real estate…just directing my marketing in a different way.
If you have a real estate need or just have a question…Call me at 508-868-3625!
Santa, I’ll be waiting with chocolate chip cookies…I still believe!
Stay warm on your journey,
