I started a new blog site

It’s called This Is Real Estate Today. That’s my business slogan. The web address is It’s a WordPress blog site that allows readers to comment. I’m hoping it will be discovered by local people who will ask questions or comment about their real estate interests.

As I write this it has started to rain at my home on Sherwood Road in Dixie Hills Estates. I love Dixie Hills as a neighborhood. The people, the location, everything about it. I will have been here 20 years on June 20.

My poor real estate business has practically ground to a standstill. We need some new people moving into the area in need of homes, but newcomers are a trickle if any at all. Population projections for Sumter County have us losing population in the coming decades. That’s bad news for the community, and for the housing and real estate industry in particular.

Do you have any thoughts on the subject?

Although it’s nearly 8 p.m., I made a fresh pot of coffee. It’s pretty good if I do say so myself.
