Terry, I love the photos you have in your market reports.

Pat; We carry our camera with us everywhere and take photos when we are driving around in anticipation of the need for them.

How is your market?  What are the demographics of the buyer?  Our market is baby boomers and last week's market roller coaster has them concerned.

Jean: I think the entire market is nervous but we seem to be doing OK always room for improvement.

Hi. In this area, is furnished basement, walk out or not, included in the total square foot? I noticed the same for sell property has a much larger square footage listed from its respective agent's listing, presumably due to adding the basement square footage.

Thus I am unsure which is more correct.

Posted by Jeremy almost 12 years ago

Jeremy: The Square footage numbers I use in the Market Report are just above grade square footage we do have both but I think the main floor numbers are more comparable.
