I hope this sunny Friday here in the Roaring Fork Valley finds you doing well. I wanted to shoot you a note with some happenings before you head into your weekend.
VETERANS DAY: From the bottom of my heart, I send a sincere thanks to all men and woman who have paid the ultimate sacrifice to protect the freedoms of our country. For all those currently serving, you are in my thoughts and prayers often but especially today.
SUPERMOON: On Monday evening we are set to witness the closest full Moon to Earth since 1948! I hope you can get outside and witness this. Fun fact: The term supermoon actually originated in astrological circles and is not a scientific term.
WEATHER: My birthday is tomorrow and this will be the first time since moving to Colorado 6 years ago that I will not be skiing on or before my birthday. Certainly do some snow dances but more importantly, continue being extra conscious to your life and consumer habits while keeping in mind that Global Warming is the single biggest threat to mankind right now and it’s going to take an effort from each of us to change this.
REAL ESTATE: As of the last 30-60 days we have undoubtedly started to see some slow down in real estate activity. This is very normal given the time of year, coming off an election and the limited inventory locally. Something to keep in mind is that interest rates have recently slowly started rising. If you are on the fence about purchasing, it might just be a perfect time to jump in. If you are on fence about selling, our local market could really use more inventory of all types and so you have an opportunity to attract top dollar.
As always, I welcome feedback and if you would like to discuss anything I mentioned above in more detail, coffee is on me anytime.
