Greenville, SC's real estate market has been on a thrilling ride this June, with enough twists and turns to keep even the most seasoned property enthusiasts on their toes! New listings climbed a solid 10.1% to 2,152, opening up more opportunities for home seekers. But don't get too comfy just yet—pending sales took a plunge, plummeting 32.2% to 950. It's like everyone was racing to catch the summer sun, only to pause and wonder, "Wait, is it time to hit the brakes?" Meanwhile, inventory took a spectacular leap, skyrocketing by 54.4% to 4,845 units, making sure the stage is set for an interesting second half of the year.Despite these wild swings, the median sales price managed to inch up 0.3% to $320,900, as if to say, "Stay calm and keep bidding!" Meanwhile, the days on the market nudge...

In Alexander Pope's poem An Essay On Criticism, he cautioned against surface knowledge: “A little learning is a dangerous thing.Drink deep, or taste not the Pierian Spring;There shallow draughts intoxicate the brain,and drinking largely sobers us again.” And so the often-repeated statement with numerous variations and attributions reminds us that no one knows all.In this day and age of artificial intelligence, it could not be more true.In our business, it's been said that AI would ultimately become a hyperlocal expert in real property with all that it entails.Not a chance.EXAMPLE: I'm getting ready to list some commercial land. The terrain is choppy but the location is both desirable and rapidly developing.I reached out to a colleague with a nearby listing. He said his (very low) pricin...

KHRT Radio was the first Christian Radio station in Minot North Dakota. Yesterday the owner of KHRT, a good friend of mine, Roy Levitt announced that the station could no longer afford to stay on the air.I have blogged about KHRT many times as I have been very involved with this radio station. I always help out with their fundraisers. I advertise exclusively on KHRT. I had a Radio program on the air for years interviewing local figures in Minot and on rare occasions I took to the airwaves when they needed me.As Realtors we ask people to shop local. We don't like people using out of state services when looking for and even purchasing Real Estate. We are local. If you are not promoting "Shop Local" then you are hurting your community and yourself.It may seem odd to you that I'd be promoti...

If you’re in the market to buy a home, there’s some exciting news for you. Many people assume that newly built homes are more expensive than existing ones (houses that have already been lived in), but that’s not always the case. In fact, exploring newly built homes can sometimes lead to more cost-effective options, especially today. Hard to believe, right? But the data doesn’t lie.Here are two key reasons working with your agent to look into new home construction could help you find a more budget-friendly option.Reason 1: Lower Median Prices for Newly Built HomesThe median sales price for newly built homes is lower than the median sales price for existing homes today. This might seem surprising, but it’s true according to the latest data from the Census and the National Association of R...
