Driving around the beach today I can be assured that Spring is finally here after a long winter.  Homeowners are out mulching, pressure washing and planting flowers to be enjoyed.  Joggers, cyclists and beachgoers are out in full force.  While I was certain we were going to experience the eternal winter, I should not complain knowing my northern friends were blasted far more devilishly than the OBX community.  Besides, I can now causally walk down the street and dig my toes into the sand so what have I go to complain about.

Real estate has continued to improve with the weather.  While prices do not seem to be rising rapidly, there appears to be some pent up demand and buyers are making the move to purchase.  Talking to contractors and vendors, they are all extremely busy...another sign of a stronger market and overall perception of the economy.. Good stuff..  Have a beautiful day!
