I don’t know what is with me but whenever I leave town all hell breaks loose back at the office. I have working on a pretty complicated transaction since Thanksgiving that all of the sudden has a new sense of urgency.
I’m thinking I should leave town more often.
Needless to say my discretionary writing time is extremely limited. This is further complicated by the fact that I have to go to the local Starbucks to get online. Thankfully Peanut likes to sleep late so I get up early, hop on a bike and ride about a mile down the road to grab a few minutes to answer emails and check the latest HoCo news.
The best thing I read this morning was this post about the local residential real estate market from the real estate blog of Jamie Smith Hopkins in The Sun.
“If you're trying to buy in Howard County, you might be feeling a bit grumpy. Between the inventory drop and a 20 percent increase in sales, the months of supply there is the lowest in the state -- tied with also-affluent Montgomery. At the rate of sales in February, normally a slow time of year for the market, sellers in both counties would all find buyers within eight months.”
Like I said, I should leave town more often.
