The Gellman Team Real Estate Blog



The 2019 holiday season has officially begun! I hope you are as excited as I am and I just wanted to share my carrot recipe with you all.

I’d like to take a moment to express my gratitude to all of you this Thanksgiving. I have met some truly wonderful people, and I am proud to have helped so many reach their real estate goals over the years.

I wouldn’t be where I am today without all of your support.

Enjoy your Thanksgiving dinner with all of your family and friends—that’s what I plan to do!

In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you have any real estate questions. I would be happy to help you.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Welcome to another edition of Mark's Market Update from the location of my first job and still one of my favorite restaurants; Sportsman's Park Restaurant and Bar in the heart of Ladue.

Inventory is up, sales are down, interest rates are historical low. Great news for buyers, with some great buying opportunities. Sellers whose homes are sitting on the market, in great areas, where homes are not selling - be patient. If the home is in an area where a softening of sales is occurring, you may want to "get ahead of the market" and adjust the price. Lastly do not worry about the winter coming up, it's a great time to sell - less inventory, serious buyers and less competition -- Keep your home on the market, unless the home has specific "wow -

Welcome to another edition of Mark's Market Update. Great news for buyers - interest rates hit a 2 year low! Now, what is happening in the market? We talk about St. Louis County, St. Louis City, St. Charles, and Jefferson County, as markets we track. We look at SALES UNITS, not sales dollars because when prices go up and the sales units go up or stay the same then overall volume increases. We are focused on what happened re: the NUMBER of PROPERTIES SOLD May 2019 vs May 2018. When we look at St. Louis County, sales units were down 10%, St. Louis City sales units down 3%, St. Charles sales units were down 12%. The interesting thing is that in all of those markets the INVENTORY UNITS were actually higher. St. Louis County inventory units
