The holiday season is here and typically there is a slowdown in activity, particularly in the second home market...right? This past weekend one of my buyers sent me eleven properties that he would like to see. When I made the usual phone calls to find out about the showing instructions, I was informed that five were under contract. They had a particular interest in one property, and when I followed up to obtain some additional information I was told that an offer had just been presented. So much for slow. I remain convinced that buyers in the second home market are financially better positioned than they have been for several years. I had one client tell me that he had a nice run-up in the stock market, was convinced that would not be the case indefinitely, and thought real estate was a better option going forward. I am sure he is not alone. Typically, folks at this time of year will hold off until the Spring, but I have a strong feeling that you could be late to the game this time around.

"Just a note to close the loop on your recommendation to use Nathan Colmer for LBI real estate. We just settled on a house in Harvey Cedars and could not be happier. Throughout the entire process Nathan was the consummate professional. We found him to be engaging, knowledgeable and very responsive. Nathan was there every step of the way, was happy to answer all of our questions and he even went out of his way to make a final inspection of the property that we needed to complete closing. Simply stated, he is the best real estate agent we have had the pleasure of working with over the years, and that includes six prior transactions"
