Three Years!

Celebrating three years of paint, plumbing, electrical, dry walling and having a wonderful life in the first home I ever owned.  The first home where I didn’t have to worry if Uncle or some random landlord would whine if I painted or fixed their lousy fixtures.

In one sense I can’t believe three years have flown by since our realtor gave us the keys to Casa, and in the other sense I look at the unfinished project list and wonder how so many things still remain to be done after three years at Casa.

Bubble Redux?

A local realtor is holding an open house for a condo one building over from ours with the same floor plan and placement as our unit.  Hoping he had baked goods (he didn’t) we decided to step inside and see what the comps were doing.  Ignoring the differences in personal style (scary wallpaper but nice tile, etc.), the unit’s upkeep and fixtures were comparable to ours.  No marble floors, and the faucets didn’t appear to be brushed platinum.  The shocker then was the asking price: 177% of what we paid for our unit less than three years ago.  I know we got lucky with timing the bottom of the Great Recession, but it’s really hard to continue to see the local increase in real estate prices as a correction and not an over-reaction.
