Spring is in the air bringing blooming daffodils, bikers on the paths, hungry fish and much more. Spring also brings overly excited Sellers, who think their properties are worth more than they are - the emotion factor. So, they tell their broker to list it at their subjective price rather than being rational, comparing their property to what has sold, not what is available, and which way the market is going.

This can create a snowball effect because once one Seller lists too high, then the next Seller thinks, if she's asking x, then I should ask x + y, if he's asking x + y, then I should ask x + y + z, etc. Then, there are a bunch of overpriced listings that don't sell and everyone is spinning their wheels. It can be tricky to have Sellers take the emotion factor out of their thinking, but the numbers don't lie.

Got to love the Spring on ACK for many reasons. I don't know where to start but I know where to begin; We are making it happen so that many generations will enjoy!!! We at JPFCO give a shout out and a praise to all the people that help to make it happen on the Island. One of the many beauties of Our Island is the nature and that is why we make it happen!!!
Go Land Bank and everyone that wants to invest in the future.

  Garden Party

'Went to a Garden Party and much to my surprise...' No, not really. But in a sense, some parallels. The Boca Grande Dog Show, which I don't think you would understand unless you're of a certain ilk. Our pup Addie, a long haired Jack Russell was the defending over-all champion and she came up empty handed. Pawed, if you will. She got the most applause, but she she didn't seem to care. C'est la vie. There were two former Westminster Champions in the mix, One won its category; the other El Blanco. So I didn't feel so bad, and Addie didn't care. So I guess you can say tis competitive or you can say it's stupid. I'll accept either one. Now something serious: The start of the b-ball season. Go Sox!
