Pike Road Real Estate 4 Wallz

The number one question I get asked as a Real Estate professional is, “How’s the market?”. Of course, we are all trained to say, “It’s great!”. Well, instead of just the standard answer to the standard question, I thought I’d spend some time to really dive in, and give you some real numbers, real facts, a real window to, “How’s the real estate market in Pike Road?”.

In general, the standard answer absolutely applies in Pike Road, the market is great. It’s an emerging market in the Tri-County area that is going great! I get many calls from buyers that are moving in the near future, and they say, “I only want to see homes in Pike Road. Do not show me any homes that are NOT in Pike Road city limits.” Now, the obvious reason is the Pike Road School

I am so happy to finally have real estate be a positive drive in our economy and society as a way to drive us forward in the coming years.  There are still doubters, but in my mind, we are in the cycle.  We were in the cycle when it went down and are following the cycle going up! AND I AM READY!! 

The advantage our parents and grandparents have on us is wisdom.  Wisdom is derived from experience.  Experience is not made up of all roses.  The culmination of a wise person with wisdom to teach can surely share the blues because they have lived them.  They can share the good times as well, but the difference is, they know the good times will not last forever so they take advantage of that time WISELY!

Well folks, this leads me to real estate.  Take

As a real estate advocate for local home buyers and national investors, I study the market across the nation to recognize trends. The trends I have noticed for some time are very promising. For over a year now, the market has been in a drastic shift from a buyers market to a sellers market. It has become a regular thing across this great country to be back to a multiple offer situation in many cases. 

However, here locally in Montgomery, AL, it's remained a bit more stagnant in regards to the prices, the multiple offers and the like. These times are beginning to CHANGE! The market is getting stronger, the foreclosure inventory has begun to shrink and the demand is starting to build. This is a great thing for the folks that have been sitting on homes

There are many people who have been thinking to take a plunge in the real estate investment market, but do not know where to start from. In fact, there are also people who want to begin their venture but cease to procrastinate for innumerable reasons. However, major chunk of people are simply frightened by the idea of plunging into something which is very complex and obscure. Nevertheless, any person desiring to flourish in this industry requires putting back the hindrances and taking the initial step.

It is very essential to discover what is holding back to start the investment in real estate. Common obstacles evidenced by the novices are lack in training, as well as understanding of current trends. Hence, it is advised to start by getting

I am not sure if you have heard the chatter, but Pike Road is being talked about as THE place to be! As a real estate agent, I hear it often. Sure, there is talk about the new school, there is talk about the outer loop, but the reality is, there is just a LOT of talk about Pike Road, Alabama!  People are moving there in droves!

The past five years has produced a lot of momentum in this small, “out of the way” sleeping community. At the helm, Mayor Gordon Stone has taken the city from a tiny little town hall in the country to a beautiful location located at 9575 Vaughn Road, just east of the Vaughn Road-Pike Road intersection.

The housing market in Pike Road has been unmatched anywhere in the area!  With the new homes going up and selling as fast as

I would agree that there is a TON of cash buying happening in the market today.  In my mind, it’s a GREAT thing! On many different levels.

First, you have the investors out there not only stimulating the real estate market with purchases, but then they continue stimulating the economy by putting people to work! Immediately at closing, you have painters, roofers, electricians and plumbers lined up jumping from that property to the next.

This is all in preparation to either provide housing for individuals that have lost their house, and will not qualify, OR to be put back on the market for an FHA buyer that would NOT have been able to buy the home in the previous condition because there was way too many things wrong with it.

Now, for this first
