Don’t beat a dead horse.

In other words, don’t keep saying the same thing over and over again. This saying came to mind this week as the temps rose, the sun came out, the spring real estate market has woken up and I felt like repeating myself!

However, at the risk of feeling like I’m a skipping record, I’ll say it - it’s a GREAT time to sell!! After all, a great time to sell, usually means the best return on your investment! Which is ultimately what we’re all after.

It’s an interesting saying though, isn’t it? I’m sure it came to be many moons ago, but the origins of it, I’m just not sure. But first of all, let’s be kind to the animals, especially a horse. Secondly, who has really been near a dead horse lately? My assumption is most of us haven’t.

Well - I have.
While camping. In a town campground. Sitting around a bonfire. Horse comes through the fence. Stumbles, falls, and takes its last breath. Right there in our camp site. True story!
Call me - I’ll tell you about it… it’s a good one! (I promise, no beating of the dead horse occurred, just care to take him to his final resting place)

ANYWAYS, got a little off track there…

All that to say I’m encouraged by where the market is at. There are many buyers searching for a home, and there are still very few homes to choose from – the ones that do come to market usually sell pretty quickly.

So, if you’re considering making a move – I dare say it again – it’s a great time to sell!!
