Bank Owner Weekly for the Week of January 25, 2015

foreclosure 2    So I Guess I Owe You an Explanation. 2015 didn’t start well for me. My son needed some medical procedures and my daughter was involved in a pretty severe automobile accident. Fortunately, everyone is well now, but my daughter has to overcome some broken bones. I hope that gives me a pass for not publishing Bank Owned Weekly for a few weeks, but my mind was elsewhere.

So who do you like ‘Hawks or Pats? And is Deflategate really such a big deal? And can the mighty Cavaliers keep their # 2 ranking and their streak alive? After the Hokies today, the ‘Hoos play Duke and Carolina this week.

Got Yours Yet? Can’t Wait for Mine!

cozy pod    Just when I thought the “casual” apparel network had hit rock bottom with the Hoodie Footie, turns out PajamaGram has come up with a new line, The Cozy Pod. Now if your ideal of haute apparel is looking like a bean pod then this item is for you. Fortunately, it does not come in green only blue and pink, but I am sure other hues are planned. My personal favorite would be camouflage, since Wal-Mart wearers would appear invisible except when encountering a massive blob in an aisle.

If you order today, I still think you can get delivery by Christmas. If you’re looking for other fashion tips, you might want to visit this earlier post.

Bank Owned Weekly for the Week of December 21, 2014

foreclosure 2     Do You Follow College Basketball ? Typically college basketball tourneys don’t produce great games until the NCAA’s, but yesterday inaugural CBS Sports Classic was an exception. UNC vs OSU followed by UK vs UCLA. The only substitution you could have made to this pantheon of college dynasties would have been Indiana for OSU. John Calipari certainly has UK on a roll, but let’s give the UVA Cavaliers some credit for their 10-0 start. Go ‘Hoos crush Harvard!

foreclosure 2  Missed Me? I know I haven’t published Bank Owned Weekly for two weeks now, but I have a pretty good reason for it. See, I went on a long overdue vacation the day after Thanksgiving and didn’t return until December 8th. Besides I don’t think you missed much since overall inventory remains quite low.

foreclosure 2     Ready for Turkey Day? Well, you better be since it will be Thursday! And it looks like we’ll have some good weather. Hooray!! I really hate this time of year except for College football. Cavalosers beat Miami yesterday, while the Hokies fell to Wake. Hard to believe Ohio State’s one loss is to the Hokies. ‘Losers and Hokies meet next Friday to prove who is the most pathetic. Oh yeah, the Irish made it three in a row. Losses that is!

Bank Owned Weekly for the Week of November 16, 2014

foreclosure 2    Yeah, But I Have Got a Good Excuse! I know it’s Monday and I normally get Bank Owned Weekly out on Sunday, but Saturday I took off for Virginia Beach. Nothing like the beach when the weather’s cold and the winds are brisk. Unfortunately, the hotel I chose had lousy internet service, which made it impossible to maintain a connection. Something had to give, and since I knew you would forgive me; Bank Owned Weekly was the winner. Speaking of winners, how about the ‘Noles and the Tide. And oh gosh, the Irish lost again!!

Metro Richmond Real Estate Snapshot for October 2014

sold snapshot old    Shazam!!! Sur-prise, sur-prise, sur-prise. Or so would say Gomer Pyle. It is now THREE consecutive good months! October ’14 exceeded October ’13 number of sales by over 13 % narrowing 2014 versus 2013 to a deficient of less 7 % in total units sold. I don’t think there is any chance that 2014 equals the units sold in 2013, but when we were lagging last year numbers by nearly 15% halfway through the year; it is a welcome surprise. All areas but 2 have Months of Inventory of less than 5 months, with those 2 exceeding 5 only have a mid 5 range. All other areas have absorption rates of less than 3 months. Discounting (Sales Price/List Price) again didn’t exceed 3 % in any areas with most in the 1 -2 % range. Currently, I feel pretty good with how the market has continued to plug along; and with the pending changes in Washington, maybe 2015 will be a good year. Yeah I know, you’re not used to hearing such optimism from me. I must be having a weak moment!
