According to Pinnacle Real Estate Advisor and Housing News:
“Existing home sales were down in February. Although demand remains strong, sales were held back by a shortage of homes on the market.
The persistent lack of inventory has helped keep prices rising though. The median house price surged 7.7% from a year ago to $228,400 in February.
New home sales were also up, jumping to a 7-month high in February. Sales were up 12.8% compared to February 2016.”

Good morning Sunshiners!!
Today, we want to discuss the lovely topic of Zillow. Although we love Zillow as a base for home research, we always warn our buyers that Zillow is not always 100% correct. ESPECIALLY when considering a home’s availability and/or worth. Make sure you consult with a professional before considering offer/purchase price of any home on the market, whether for sale by owner or listed on the MLS. They will be able to pull the correct comps to help you figure out the best price for your new home. Also, homes listed on Zillow are not always available. Recently, I had a buyer send me a list of 10 homes they found on Zillow vs. what they saw on my Realtor MLS set up automatic search. The 3 on my search were all actively available. The other 7 were either not even listed or already under contract. Long story short, always check with a professional and don’t believe everything you see on the internet :). Below is a fun meme we found entertaining :). Have a Sunshine day!

Late Thursday night St. Charles County lost a beloved gem. Bogey Hills Country Club was one of St. Charles County’s most historic and loved golf courses in the area. Late Thursday night to Friday morning, firefighters fought to put out a five alarm fire at the Bogey Hills Country Club which has been passed down through 3 generations of families. Our thoughts and prayers are with the owners, families, members and community affected by the destruction of this amazing building. Luckily, reports show no one was hurt and the family plans to rebuild. Read more here:
