Area Home Sales, February 15 – 29, 2012

The second half of February was warmer than it normally is this time of year. More crocuses and daffodils began to bloom, the robins enjoyed picking the berries off of the holly bushes, and had an extra day- it’s leap year.

Next weekend we’ll be turning the clocks ahead (“spring forward!”) as Daylight Savings Time begins again. We’ll be losing an hour of sleep, but gaining additional daylight so more and more commuters will be able to come home while it’s still light outside.

The garden catalogs have come in the mail and we’re already thinking about what kinds of flowers we’ll have and what vegetables we’ll be planting in our garden. I’d better go get some more peat moss and dehydrated manure to add to the raised beds. Also, I’ll need to get out the supplies for starting seedlings indoors- tomatoes for sure. I tried some of those “self-watering” seed starting kits last year, the ones with the water reservoir on the bottom, and they really worked well. The capillary action got the water to the roots where they’re needed the most, and I didn’t have to worry about under or over watering. They have an upfront cost, but should last for years and years.

Yes, the warm weather also meant that interest in real estate picked up. There were more public open houses held on the weekends, and more people are approaching Realtors to ask about buying or selling a home.And now a blatant plug: if you know anyone who’s interested in buying or selling a home in our area, please give them my name and number.

Finally we get to the topic of this post: the following single-family homes and condominiums in our area were sold (closed) between February 15th and February 29th, 2012:
