The following is from an article that appeared in Over the Mountain Journal on March 11, 2021

In what ways has the pandemic affected the OTM real estate market?

The biggest impact from the pandemic is that it exacerbated the problem with low inventory. More sellers have been hesitant to list. So, prices in Mountain Brook, Homewood and Vestavia have increased at a faster pace than they would have otherwise. Those markets are so competitive that listings price appropriately and in good shape are getting multiple offers. Often, winning bids are significantly above asking price and some buyers are even waiving their contingencies on financing and inspections.

Over the past 12 months, have you seen any changes in what buyers are looking for?

Thanks to our wonderful clients Jan and Charlie Atwater for entrusting us with the marketing of their beautiful home in Kirkman Preserve!

One of the joys of being a realtor is getting to work with wonderful clients! Assisting our former neighbor Amy Baird with sale of her beautiful home in Carisbrooke was one of those great partnerships. At each step of the process, from pre-listing preparations to the closing, she was always willing to consider our suggestions. While it's critical to list your home with an experienced, knowledgeable agent who has your best interests at heart, you can't have a successful transaction without the support and cooperation of the seller. Kudos to Amy for being great to work with! Her efforts helped us generate multiple offers and sell ($605,000) for more than asking price! 

Be prepared to fall in love with this spectacular custom built home in the popular…
