Sometimes life gets in the way of the best laid plans, and it is important to read the signs.  Here’s a visual to help explain the signs in the real estate market I saw when my client Jamie decided to sell her condo in December of 2010. We were at the bottom of a sinking market with no real clue as to when the market would bounce back.

With my urging, she decided to wait out the recession in order to maximize profit. What we didn’t know at that time, is how much better it turned out that she did end up waiting (for personal and financial reasons) to sell.  I personally have found this to be a true testament that things really do work out when they are supposed to.

It also just so happens that Jamie is a talented architect who clearly possesses a designers eye (look at what she did to this condo)!  The condo FLEW off the market in just one day when I re-listed it four years later. As her condo was sale pending, she found a BEAUTIFUL Tudor style home with just enough cosmetic items left for her to really let her skill-set shine.  The financial cherry on top is that this house is (just barely) in Washington County, making taxes substantially lower here!  I have sold a few houses right on the border this year and I always do a silent jump for joy for them.

Jamie and her dog Pele are about to embark on a really awesome new chapter full of more space for projects and thundering around the yard!
