If you have been paying attention to the real estate signs in your neighborhood, you have noticed that there are significantly less.  At the time I pulled the data, there were only 44 properties listed in Talega.   That is considered very low inventory for a community the size of Talega.  I have conversed with numerous agents up and down the coast and everyone is seeing the same activity and evaporation of inventory.   With interest rates at all time lows, it seems that buyer’s are taking advantage, which is causing the market to stabilize in Talega.   This is the most optimistic news that we have had in a few years and I hope it continues.  I have been receiving calls in the past month from agents and buyers looking for homes that are not on the market.

I hope that you had a great holiday season.  My family and I enjoyed the holidays and I had some really great changes in my business.  In November, I changed companies and the Echelberger Group is now with Surterre Properties.  I couldn’t be happier with the company, the staff, the networking and the marketing of Surterre Properties.  In my 17 years of selling real estate, it truly is the best that I have seen, or experienced.  Please feel free to stop by our new office in San Clemente, at 621 S.
