THE SECOND STORY | July 31st, 2020

Letting them know who you are….

I ordered this from in the past week. I think this is really smart advertising. Why not print the company name like it was handwritten on the box on every side of the package? Somebody is onto something. Kinda nuts, eh? Well, maybe not if the box contains something electronic….

I hope you are taking some time to go through these property reports….they say/show so much more than just the address and the photos. The graphs are interesting…and it kind of gives an overview of the market. They also give Zillow (qu)esstimates.


AC (active contingent on selling another property)

PCH (price change)

PSB (pending sale, want backups)


Active listings 44 including 1 BOM

Days on market   High 1181   Low 8  Avg 91  Median 23

Pending listings 12 including 4 PSB

Days on market   High 52  Low 0  Avg 13  Median 8

Sold listings 15   

Days on market   High 125  Low 0  Avg 22  Median 12

OK! That’s a wrap for this summary. Questions? Give me a call, email!  And if I (or my phone) don’t recognize your phone number, I probably won’t return your text msg.  There’s just too much weirdness going on out there!

Let me know if you have questions and/or need referrals…! Be safe, wear a mask, and be well!

Best, marilyn
