City of Lawrence, KS "Pooch" Friendly

On August 22, 2011 the City of Lawrence opened the municipal swimming pool to all the canine citizens of Lawrence, KS Homes. The city closes the pool to the public a few days before this event every year. If you have a dog who loves water and loves to swim, you should mark your calander for next year.

I was on my way to see a buyer about some Homes for Sale Lawrence, KS when I first noticed the dogs heading to the pool with their owners. On the way back to my office, Realty Executives-Hedges Real Estate, I stopped and enjoyed watching the canine belly flops and the pooch plunges. It seemed that all the dogs were very social and enjoying all the canine company. It was a fantastic event for the pooches and their owners. I watched as the dogs all jumped in, dog-paddled around, got out, shook their coats and repeated the process. The dogs and the owners all seemed to have a ton of fun.

Buyers looking to purchase Lawrence, KS Homes will be fortunate to live in a community that is really "pooch" friendly.

Silver Lining in Midst of Stock Storm?

For millions of Americans the decline of the stock market in the past few days has been a painful reminder of what can happen when we listen to our leaders instead of doing our own homework and being prepared. Many of us have seen this storm brewing for the past two years, while unfortunatley most did not. The vast majority of people are too caught up in their daily lives to take time out to seriously consider how the politicians, from the President on down, are taking our country in the wrong direction. Most Americans are good and decent people who just want to believe that the politicians have their best interest at heart.

The "leaders" of this great nation seem to have no problem mis-leading the American people. The policies they make for us does not affect their wallets or their retirement accounts. I, for one, would like to see them all take an immediate pay cut and start contributing to their health insurance and retirement systems. But that's a story for another day.

I'm hopeful that more and more Americans will WAKE UP, smell the proverbial coffee and either get their money out of the stock market or at least put some of it into precious metals and real estate. It is really a wise move to diversify. One way to do that is to look at purchasing Real Estate for Sale in Lawrence, KS.

For more than 3 consecutive weeks we've endured 100+ temperatures here in Lawrence, KS. Those who are struggling to find success in selling their Lawrence, KS Homes for Sale, have felt the heat in more ways than one. Lawrence, KS Houses for Sale have seen far less showings during this time and fewer offers and sales.
Today we finally have RAIN! I'm optimistic that with cooler weather the home buyers will be more inclined to go out to open houses and begin calling agents about the Lawrence, KS Houses for Sale they see online.
In addition, I'm hopeful that now that it's cooler, more and more buyers will be out driving through the neighborhoods and see all the Homes for Sale in Lawrence, KS real estate signs in all those Lawrence, KS Homes' yards and give the agents a call in order to schedule showings.
