Marching Forward? Yes, the real estate market is starting to get a little warm as Spring time is upon us. Let us not look past the numbers though. Mr./Ms.  Seller it is still going to take a little time to sell your home BUT if you come up with the right recipe of list price, property condition and a good location you are sure to attract a buyer with a rather healthy appetite quickly. And to our buyer friends out there it is safe to say if you are actively looking for a home, don't hesitate. The good one's always go fast as long as they have the recipe for success.  Now, I‘m hungry.
