Everything in my (neglected) garden is dead or dying except the lavender, morning glories, and plumbago. Is it something about the periwinkles?

Every Sunday, the pups and I make a ritual of feeding our composting worms. We carry two containers of scraps from the week, plus egg cartons and sometimes some Amazon packaging, add it all to one side of the farm where the worms are actively feeding — and give it a stir — while the other side preps for “black gold” harvest. Once that’s done in the spring, we’ll fertilize our garden and start feeding that side again. And the cycle continues…
These worms have been going for nearly two years now. I cover them in winter, but otherwise they’re pretty hassle-free and exceptional for the environment!
Ready for a composting worm farm of your own? Ping me and I’ll hook you up!
Closing on this Wilmington beauty this week — 3 weeks from showing to closing. Reminder: I take one referral at a time. Who’s next?
A stranger on LinkedIn just asked my advice for buying his first home in this market. Here’s what I replied… What would you add?
Hi Carlos — I’m not active in the NY market, and all real estate is local, but there are a few universal truths at play here.
First, what goes up must come down and real estate is cyclical. Decisions made precipitously by buyers the last 2 years will naturally create a buyers market — where circumstances are favorable to buyers and supply outpaces demand. Interest rates will still be higher than the last several years, but anything in the single digits is still doable. Remember, you can always refinance after a few years should rates drop significantly.
Second, save cash for a down payment and closing costs, get and maintain a high credit score, and develop relationships with a mortgage lender and local realtor who can pre-approve you and help you act quickly when the time is right.
Third, once you know your budget, figure out what kind of place you want and where, then get to know the market by attending open houses and having your realtor show you places you’re interested in and advise you about your selections. Finally, don’t be in a hurry, but act quickly when you find the perfect place at the perfect price in the perfect location.
I hope that helps. Good luck!

When I bought my first house, interest rates were around 13%. It’s about to be a buyer’s market. Don’t blink.

Is Renting Really A Waste Of Money?
It’s a radical concept, especially coming from a realtor, I know, but homeownership isn’t for everyone. Renting is still a solid option. Just ask most New Yorkers!
Is Renting Really A Waste Of Money? In the world of real estate, a common refrain is that if you’re renting instead of buying, you’re throwing your money away. I’ve had several realtors tell me that before… but is it true?
This collage tells the story of an island in the Venetian Lagoon. The colour of the houses follow a specific system. When an owner wishes to paint their house they have to send a request to their government, who will respond by letting the owner know which specific colours are permitted for that area. This practice has resulted in the myriad of warm, pastel colours that characterizes the island today. Or is the legend the true reason for these colours, which has it that the houses were painted by fishermen to recognize them from far off distances during the long periods of absence whilst fishing?

These are the most overvalued housing markets in the U.S. — FORTUNE
No need to rush to buy unless you just have to, or find a real deal. There’ll always be another house.
These are the most overvalued housing markets in the U.S. — FORTUNE Boise City, Idaho, homes are selling at an 81% premium.
This house has everything I need in life. **sigh**
SELLERS: If your house has been on the market for more than 2 weeks in this highly competitive sellers’ market, and you haven’t received an offer, your property is not only over-priced, but so over-priced that buyers aren’t even willing to lowball you. Leaving it on the market just makes it look like damaged goods. Either be strategic and price it to sell or take it off the market ‘til you’re ready to get serious.
BUYERS: If you’re a buyer on a budget, don’t feel pressured to buy right now. The pendulum will swing back your way soon enough and sanity will prevail. Don’t risk your financial health. There will always be another house.
WILMINGTON: I’ve got a ready buyer looking for a small cottage in good shape, walking distance to the Riverwalk, front rocking porch. Who d’ya know? Whatcha got?
It was a stellar weekend — reuniting with my Mother Duck sisters, cheering on our sailors in the annual William J Adams IV Regatta, celebrating the 60th Anniversary of Camp Seafarer, and generally feeling happy (yes, even in masks) in my favorite bubble. This is why I founded the Mother Duck Endowment & donate a significant portion of my real estate income to it — so future generations of young girls can experience this magic. ⛵️☀️⚓️
I’m off to Camp Seafarer tomorrow to celebrate its 60th anniversary. It won’t be the week I typically spend each year volunteering as a Mother Duck to a gaggle of new campers. Covid saw to that. But it will be a chance to, at long last, hug the dearest of friends and breathe the rarified air of the place I love more than any other on Earth.
My Big Why is to give the daughters of community service providers — first responders, front-line & healthcare workers, teachers, community service providers — the magical camp experience that shaped (and shapes) me. I founded the Mother Duck Endowment to ensure these girls will be able to go to camp long after I’m gone.
By all means, ping me if you’d like to contribute. 😉
