Thinking of a bigger house? Now's the time to sell!
If you've been dreaming of a bigger house or wonder if it's a good time to sell your home, we can say "Now is the time". Central Iowa real estate is experiencing a Seller's Market for homes
priced below $300,000. By definition, a Seller's Market is, "a situation wherein sellers are outnumbered by buyers by a significant margin and the quantity of goods available for sale becomes far less than
the quantity demanded". We also have a great selection of homes for sale above $300,000. Many of these are new construction homes across Ames.
Spring Forward! Change your clocks.
Daylight Saving Time is the practice of changing the clocks forward one hour from standard time during the summer months, and changing them back again in the fall.
Daylight Saving Time begins on Sunday, March 12, at 2:00 A.M. Remember to "spring ahead" and set your clocks forward 1 hour before you go to bed.
The general idea is that this allows us all to make better use of natural daylight as now there will be more light in the evening.
