One of my brothers is here from Michigan on a visit (the other ones already live here:-), and while I was working yesterday (another closing, yeah!), they all went out golfing for the day at Fort Carson. The course at Fort Carson is open to the public, and the only one to my knowledge that has a GPS system in the golf carts to help you plan a perfect approach shot with the right club. Golf in March is not the same as golf in June. The ball rolls further, and grass is brown. But it was in the mid 60’s (not any one’s score from what I heard), bright sunshine (they got burnt a little), and all in all, a great way to spend an unseasonably warm spring day. It was so warm I decided to turn the sprinkler system on, there is no rain in sight, overnight lows are above freezing, and the little bit of snow that fell on Friday did not do much.
St Patrick’s Day today is going to be another beauty, over 70, and then tomorrow we go up and do some spring skiing. Time for serious sun screen and lighter jackets for sure!
The market seems to be picking up, my closing yesterday was on a townhome in Monument that only lasted a week on the market, and I had another listing go under contract last week that was less than 2 weeks on market. property that is in good shape and priced well is definitely selling!
