This year my wife and I went to the Dominican Republic, Punta Cana and stayed at the new one called Colonial Majestic. It was fantastic. One of the best holidays in years. We had been to Punta Cana before in 2004 and stayed at the Barcelo Palace, one of five hotels on that property and they had small trains running around between the sites, casino, golf course, small shopping centre and a super beach. Well this one was just as nice, only one hotel but what a hotel. The best swimming pool ever, great staff although new to the job,fantastic beach and really super rooms. All in all a great time was had by the Stinson's.
We are back at home now and its still snowing, cold and very unpleasant. The Selling market is down or very slow right now and I think a lot of the reason is the weather. Once it warms up the Buyers will come. Meanwhile the listings keep coming in. With prices going up and a rumor of a new mine coming in 2010 it makes for an interesting market. I think a lot of the new listings that the Realtors are taking right now are quite a bit over priced for this market and that reason will set in in a short time when they don't sell and prices will come down. The properties that are properly priced are selling so we are still seeing some sales. The last three that I listed were only on the market a short time. One I sold in three hours, one in two days and the last one when I was putting the sign up in the front yard. They all had multiple interest and one went for full price which was 5,000 higher than the Appraisal.So if they are priced right they will sell. See you later, just got a listing.
