Happy St. Patrick's Day from Blanchard & Calhoun

 

Did you know that St. Patrick’s Day started as a religious holiday? As a matter of fact, St. Patrick wasn’t Irish at all. The history of St. Paddy’s day dates back to hundreds of years and the modernized American version is actually very different from how it was originally celebrated.

Real Estate Market Absorption Rates

 The absorption rate provides insight into the real estate market letting us know the rate at which homes sell in an area over a period of time.
