Three new listings are hitting the market this week, and I can tell by the tornado of papers and files laying on my desk that there hasn't been much time for "organization" the past two or three weeks. Thank goodness our office building has a conference room where I can meet with people! It has been a busy spring (or did we just jump directly into summer considering the recent temps) between listings and sales as well as Wayne State graduation and student move-out last weekend and Wayne High School graduation this weekend. There have been many new faces popping through our door which should be encouraging to those on both the buying and selling end of the spectrum. The pace of Wayne's real estate market in recent months is definitely a sign of many good things to come this year!
The same holds true for other communities as we have seen strong activity with our Wakefield, Laurel, and Carroll listings during the past few weeks. On Monday, I had the pleasure of welcoming some buyers into their new home at 713 Cedar Avenue in Laurel. This 3-bedroom, 2 bath ranch-style home will definitely make a nice landing spot for the couple that purchased it as they relocate into town from the farm.
In addition, it is great to have so many excited home buyers searching for and preparing to buy a home for the first time. I always enjoy working with first-timers because they have so many fresh perspectives and ideas about home ownership. I love to see the changes that they make to homes to reflect their own personal tastes. It is rewarding to hand over those keys and be the first to tell them, "Welcome Home."
Finally, I want to wish all of the area graduates much success in their future endeavors as they prepare to graduate this weekend. Excitement fills the air as so many plan for what lies ahead. (Not to mention that many of you may be purchasing your first home before long as well!):) Good luck!
