All of the above!  The horse farms are renowned and beautiful. Real estate prices are enticing. The weather is warming yet slightly seasonal. No need to shovel snow. The folks are friendly....and on and on

Wags to ~ Zillow

To an open ear out there...I don't know about you guys, but I've been utilizing Zillow for a few years now on both the buyers and sellers sides. Transformations have been slow to realize any change and easy to slide into, thus for us over 50 yrs who remember as agents we had to actually mail papers back and forth and talk as quickly as we could when long distance calling was involved, this finger tip access is Awesome! Just wanted to say...Thanks, Zillow for making my job a little easier. Helen Edwards

How to find a good realtor?

Answer

Zillow..they have a client Review tab on the realtor's profile.First I'd ask all friends, co workers & relatives who they've used and liked.Then arrange for appointments to interview the chosen ones.Ask them plenty of questions. How long in the business, referrals etc..Go with the one you feel most comfortable.

What kind of closing gifts do customers like to receive?

Answer

Just gave a half bushel of steamed Crabs as a closing gift to a couple from New Mexico who craved seafood again as originally from the eastern shore. They were thrilled. Also helped them unload their rental truck. After spending time showing clients around sometimes for months, you hear their likes. Gifts that show you Listen are usually a hit.  A planned take out dinner for the first night in their new home is nice too.

if i buy a townhouse can i change the flooring on my own or do i need to ask permission from the boa

Answer

Always a good idea to check with the HOA on any questions. Most condos units work as if the owners own the interior and theassociation owns/maintains the exterior. Carpet will not be a problem as most buyers seem to want to freshen up or choose their own colors or patterns. Townhouses as opposed to stackable condos, are side by side units with most having a fire wall between them.I can't see a reason that the noise level would would make a difference.
