Spring is in the air! Hints of warmer temperatures have teased us a few times in the last few weeks. Warm weather lovers have been jolted into reality a few times as well, as another cold front sweeps away the warmth and reminds us that winter hasn’t yet had her final say! In spite of this, your real estate team has kicked off 2015 with more pending sales for January and February when compared to the same time in 2014. How this movement will translate into the coming months remains to be seen, but we are encouraged by what we hope is a trend that will continue in the months ahead.

We welcome the opportunity to serve and build lasting relationships with our clients! And, we’re adding new technologies to help support our efforts to enhance our services to you and those you care about. Our newest technology enhancement brings cutting edge 3D imagery and virtual tours to our premium listings, where the owners have committed to staging and presenting their homes in a way that the technology can truly enhance the online appeal of their home. Delivering this technology required the investment in special equipment, and it is a first for our state. Visit www.allstarteam.com/3Dwalkthrough to enjoy this new feature. We are happy to discuss if the 3D Walkthrough is a good fit for your property.

New inventory is hitting the market at an increasing pace. The best possible selection of property will be on the market over the next 90 days or so, and our Buyer’s Agent team is ready to assist. They possess the highest level of concentrated training in our marketplace and are excited to put their skills to work for you. They are a resource not only for homes that are listed in the MLS, but also new constructions and homes about to come on the market, and they can even help protect our clients from costly mistakes by representing them in the purchase of an unlisted property.

Speaking of the spring buyers market, USDA Rural Housing loans (which provide 100% financing for purchasers who meet relatively generous income requirements) have expanded their availability areas to include most all of Oak Grove and the City of Petal. This opens up more homes to qualifying purchasers. The new boundaries went into effect February 5th. Visit http://eligibility.sc.egov.usda.gov/eligibility to see the updated boundaries. Then call, click, or text one of our team members to take the next steps.

As always we are always committed and honored to bringing you, and those you care about, home again and again!

Adam & Team
