We’re in For a Colorful Spring on Camano Island and Stanwood!Posted: December 9, 2010
I’ve been in the Real Estate business for a season or two (ha, ha) and one thing that I’ve come to expect is the cyclical housing market slow-down during this time of year.
If your home isn’t flying off the market this week, it’s likely more related to tryptophan-induced sluggishness or slow recovery from Black Friday marathon shopping sprees than anything else. Thus begins the Real Estate “lull” marked by the beginning of the Holidays as folks get busy with family celebrations, and typically stays slow through the first few months of the new year. One sign of buyers being more active is the increase in the number of colorful “sold” signs that go up around our communities in the Spring.
This year in addition to more of these “sold” signs coming out and adding color, I’m also looking forward to a lot of extra color around our community from another source.
Thanks to an anonymous donation of thousands of bulbs – daffodils, tulips, irises, crocuses, etc., the Stanwood-Camano Area Foundation held a community event entitled “Think Spring” where these bulbs were made available at no charge to be planted in community or public spaces.
It was a very fun event, I felt privileged to participate and I’m looking forward to seeing an increase in colorul signs AND colorful flowers this Spring!
