Friends & Clients

Welcome to spring from Real Estate Modo! Quick follow up from last month’s note, for those of you that feared for my well being during our Adventure Race. We survived, 67 total miles of running, kayaking and biking while navigating with an old school compass, our team(which included 2 of my fellow Modo agents, Dalton Dellinger & Jason Smith) finished in 3rd place in our category, just over 11 hours.

The weather is looking like it’s finally warming up, but it has not caught up to the hot real estate market this past month. We are seeing a pretty typical high volume of transactions, driven by the seasonality of the second home and investment market, properties that have been on the market for an extended period of time are selling and well priced listings are selling within just a few days.

We still have a good 30-45 day window to jump in before the summer income really shoots up! Connect with us on Facebook if you haven’t yet:

Keep in mind that our seller clients ONLY pay a 1% seller side commission, pass it along if you know anyone thinking of selling.


February Sales Stats:There were 1162 total transactions and just over $227 million in closed volume. The average days on the market was 159 with the avg closed price of $195,514. The high sale was $2.31m for an oceanfront home on 47th Ave N in MB. Condos accounted for 421 of the sales, while 620 residential homes sold. There were 35 foreclosure sales and only 7 closed short sales. While it may seem like there is a lot of inventory on the market, the year over year level of inventory has continued to decrease since mid 2010. Feb year over year single family inventory was down 4% and condo inventory was down 18.8% compared to Feb 2017.

My Deal(s) of the Month:As always, a “deal” depends on a number of factors with what you are looking for in a property, be it for personal use, investment etc. We can get you all of the details on any if you like what you read. I can’t guarantee they will still be available when you read this. Here are the details with some I like a lot this month.
