QUALITY

Buyer bidding wars, best and final offers, timing temptation, regrets, over-bidding, winning, losing…it’s all happening. Remember that sellers also walk a delicate line in today’s environment. While the obvious goal is to sell for the highest price, sellers always run the risk of accepting the offer of someone who doesn't follow through on contract conditions or even worse – back out because they were just tying up the home.

BOOMER

After the second “Mom…you are such a BOOMER” comment, I decided to figure out what on earth my kids were talking about. Did a little research and discovered that I am officially part of the Gen X generation. For those of you interested, Millennials are ages 24 to 40 – Gen X ages are from 41 to 56 – and Baby “Boomers” are between 57-75 years old. When surveyed by Bankrate the top 3 biggest regrets for each of these generations regarding their home purchase were maintenance costs, size (too small), and location. (CNBC)

MOTHER GODDESSES

This Sunday we honor all of the Mothers, Grandmothers, Aunts, and special women who have had a great influence on our lives. Celebrations of mothers and motherhood can be traced back to the ancient Greeks and Romans, who held festivals in honor of the mother goddesses Rhea and Cybele, but the clearest modern precedent for Mother’s Day is when Anna Jarvis of Philadelphia, whose mother had organized women’s groups to promote friendship and health, originated Mother’s Day.
