“LIFE IS TEN PERCENT what happens to you and ninety percent how you respond to it.” (Charles Swindoll).

WHAT A KICKOFF! This year is off to a rousing start, thanks to many of YOU! Thanks for entrusting friends and family members (not to mention yourselves!) to our care. We take your trust seriously! THANKS IN ADVANCE for the people you’ll send our way in 2019!

LOOKING BACK, 2018 ended up being an excellent year for The Statesman Team with the momentum continuing into 2019. The market is shifting, but people always need to buy and sell regardless of market conditions. I’m SO grateful for the many loyal friends who are responsible for our success.

MARKET INDICATOR…In December of 2018, there were 3.2 months of inventory listed for sale in Lodi. That’s a 102 % increase from December of 2017. This is a normal market swing. Inventory rises and falls over the years. I can recall times when active listing inventory was almost SIX TIMES today’s number. The whole world was for sale! This market is softening now, but inventory is not high enough to be considered a Buyer’s Market. That said, pricing is more important than ever if you want to get your home SOLD!

JUST LISTED! 220 South Loma is a cute three bedroom one and a half bath home on a big Westside lot. Tucked away just east of South Mills between Jackson and Walnut Streets, this home is priced well at $294,950. Central heat and air! Original hardwood floors! More! Come see.

“NEVER LET THE FEAR of striking out keep you from playing the game.” (Babe Ruth). Have a great week. Keep swinging for the fences!
