    You can definitely tell our main tourist season is over! Restaurant hours have changed, vacation rental prices are reduced, a little cooler weather! I LOVE THIS TIME OF YEAR!

    Real Estate traffic has definitely slowed down but certainly not dead! I do think prices are taking a little up tick! Properties that haven’t been looked at all summer because they were over priced are now being shown and seriously considered!

    Interest rates are still ridiculously low! However, financing is an exercise in patience!!! Full documentation is required, I don’t care how much you are putting down or how high your credit score is, or how well you know your banker!! If you are getting a conventional or FHA loan…you have to document every dime coming in and going out of your accounts!!!! So be prepared!
    If you are going to require financing, get pre-approved. When you are ready to make that offer, talk to your lender and get a list of everything that is required….time is of the essence, so better to be pro-active to reduce a little of that stress!!!

    An absolutely gorgeous day here today. Cooler this morning with a nice breeze, the water was like glass! There was a school of dolphins who must have been feeding, right off the beach!

    I just can’t imagine living anywhere else!

    Have a great week and don’t hesitate to call me anytime!!!
