For the week of JANUARY 30, 2023






“Never go to a doctor whose office plants have died.”—Erma Bombeck, American humorist









New Home Sales headed up 2.3% in December. They’re still down from a year ago but the recent trend has been positive—nationally, sales activity has been rising for the past three months in a row.

More good news: the supply of completed homes has risen rapidly. There is now a 9.0 months’ supply of new homes for sale, a significant increase from the 3.3 months’ supply early in the pandemic. 

Also encouraging, the Pending Home Sales index of signed contracts on existing homes rose for the first time since last May. The NAR observed, “recent declines in rates are clearly helping to stabilize the market.”









BACK TO THE RALLY... After the prior week's losses, traders put their rally caps back on and sent the three major stock indexes up strongly on signs the Fed is curbing inflation without a big boost in unemployment. 

The PCE Price index, the Fed's favorite measure, showed inflation moderated from November's 5.5% read to 5.0% in December. Meanwhile, initial weekly jobless claims fell by 6,000, to 186,000.

In addition, the economy grew at a 2.9% annual rate in Q4, there were some strong quarterly corporate results, and Durable Goods Orders and University of Michigan Consumer Sentiment came in better-than-expected.

The week ended with the Dow UP 1.8%, to 33,978; the S&P 500 UP 2.5%, to 4,071; and the Nasdaq UP 4.3%, to 11,622.

Bond prices ended flat overall, but the UMBS 5.5% rose .05, to $101.16. Freddie Mac's Primary Mortgage Market Survey showed the national average 30-year fixed mortgage rate continued to trend down. Remember, mortgage rates can be extremely volatile, so check with your mortgage professional for up-to-the-minute information. 

DID YOU KNOW… New Home Sales and Pending Home Sales are timelier indicators of where real estate is heading because they’re calculated when contracts are signed. So, it was good news that both trended up in December.









CONSTRUCTION SPENDING, MANUFACTURING, SERVICES, JOBS, THE FED... December Construction Spending is expected to come in flat. The ISM Manufacturing Index is forecast to show contraction, but ISM Non-Manufacturing may reveal expansion. There should be modest gains in Nonfarm Payrolls, Average Hourly Earnings, and the Unemployment Rate. We'll also get the Fed's FOMC Rate Decision, projected to be a quarter percent hike.









Forecasting Federal Reserve policy changes in coming months. The futures market expects the Fed will vote for a quarter percent rate hike this week and in March, then nothing in May. Note: In the lower chart a 99.9% probability of change is a 99.9% probability the rate will rise. Current rate is 4.25%-4.50%.

Now is the time to develop your strategy and plan for 2023. Then put that plan in motion immediately. Having a plan and executing it early in the year will give you the momentum that will carry you through the next 12 months.

Linda Brewer and her Pansies

After spending hours and days in hot weather, then wet, and then
finally cold weather at each of our Entrances digging out the
weeds and the flowers of Summer, Linda turned to planting over 290 Pansies
to bring back the beauty of our entrances.  Each of the Pansies required a new hole,
some "Blood Meal and Fertilizer, to live through the cold and Winter. 
Each one done with tender love and care.
  Next Spring, the Oakridge and Louisville
Entrances will be a place of joy and beauty thanks
 to her extremely hard work this fall.
Turtle Creek furnished the Pansies and Linda
 gave of her time without charge!
The next time you see her,
 please say
"Thank YOU for your hard work!"

If you have a boat, an RV, a DEAD Auto or Truck, or a trailer parked in your driveway
Please remove it and do any of the below
  remove them from the driveway and park them "Behind the Fence" on an
all weather surface (not grass, not gravel) completely out of sight.
or move them to a self storage business.

below is the paragraph referred to in the Covenants of Turtle Creek

J.     Automobiles, Boats and Trailers.  Except as expressly hereinafter provided, no lot or

            parcel shall be used as a parking, display or accommodation area for any type of motor
            vehicle, boat, trailer, camper or motor-driven cycle.  The purpose of parking, display or
            accommodation area is to store or to perform any activity thereon such as, but not
            limited to maintenance, repair, rebuilding, dismantling, repainting, servicing of any kind,
            or storage, except as hereinafter provided.  Such storage or activities may be performed
            within completely enclosed garages or other structures located on the lot which screen
            the sight and sound of the activities from the street and from adjoining property in such
            a manner so as to have the storage or activity out of the public view. The foregoing
            restriction shall not be deemed to prevent the washing or polishing of such motor of such
             motor vehicles, boats, trailers, campers, or motor-driven cycles, together with those  
            activities normally incident or necessary to such washing and polishing.  No boat, trailer,
            camper, truck or commercial vehicles shall be parked at any time on or in front of any lot in
            an area visible from neighboring lots or any public street, except as such parking is
            necessary to make commercial deliveries.  All such motor vehicles, boats, trailers,
            campers, or motor-driven cycles which are stored or parked on any lot or parcel and
            which are not stored or parked in completely enclosed garage or other structure may be
            stored or parked on a side lot area and screened from public view by a fence and located
            on a concrete surface; provided however, in no event shall such storage or parking be
            beyond the front building line of the said lot or parcel.

Page 3 of 8

               This should not even be a point to raise

                                         It is just common sense, these Covenants were voted on and
                          Approved by a huge majority of 87% of the homeowners here in Turtle Creek in 2000.
                             The City of Broken Arrow adopted just about the same language in their city code. 
It is up to us to keep Turtle Creek and Broken Arrow beautiful.  A boat, a trailer, a dead car or truck, an RV has
      a special place, but it is not the driveway or the side yard or backyard of your home here in Turtle Creek.

                                If you don't agree with these Covenants, please consider moving to another area
                                                     that is more acceptable to your type of life style.

                                                                                 Without Regrets

Personal Note
After a recent break-in here in Turtle Creek, especially just 2 doors north of me, I purchased a 4 Camera, 1080P, Modem, wireless System.  The
views are extremely sharp, clear and in color.  You can access the system via your Smart Phone, You are notified every time there is motion detected by
the Camera(s).  You can subscribe to their services or simply monitor the activity through your phone, lap top, desk top or iPad or other devices.

I purchased the system at Best Buy for about $775.00 and paid $125.00 to have someone install and show me how it works. (well worth it the first time around)
They work on their own Battery System and they are rechargeable BUT I strong suggest that you have the System hard wired (plug into electric outlets)
This avoids trips up the ladder to take down and recharge the Battery.  I did buy an extra Battery just to have it ready when the ONLY one that I have
on a battery dies, this takes about 3 months depending on the amount of activity the camera senses.  The more it sees, the faster the battery dies.  Those over the
garage pickup motion south bound, north bound and in the driveway. The other is located towards the backyard where is watching the side garage door.

I like it and would recommend it strongly.  It is NOT the answer to prevent but rather to catch those that are up to no good or to just see who pulled up into
the driveway.

Next time you walk by the house, look way up over the garage.
 You are being watched and you just tripped the motion

Are you doing the little things homebuyers love?
updated 6-27-2021

There’s never been a better time to sell a home.

Millennials are ready for homeownership and renters are seeing consistent rent increases. This means more buyers than ever are on the market for a home like yours. 

Home equity is also at all-time highs, which makes now the perfect time to sell and get more cash to put toward your next home.

Considering listing your home? Let’s start with the proven ways to maximize your returns: 

1. Clear the clutter. Crammed closets and overfilled garages can give buyers the impression your property is short on space. Declutter aggressively to accentuate the storage possibilities buyers get excited about. 

Pro Tip: Buyers love to open cabinets and drawers. Clear those spaces, too.

2. Maximize the possibilities. A potential home should be a blank slate -- a space buyers can imagine making their own. Keep personal items to a minimum and aim for a neutral look. 

Pro Tip: Set the dinner table so buyers can visualize coming home after a long day.

3. Brighten it up. Expose as much natural light as possible. For darker or interior rooms, use high-wattage bulbs in light fixtures.

Pro Tip: A fresh coat of light paint makes a home feel cheerful and shows pride of ownership.

4. Rearrange the furniture. Can people move around without bumping into furniture? Does the layout invite guests to sit down and relax?

Pro Tip: To invite conversation, don’t make a TV the focal point of any room. 

5. Outside views matter. Exteriors make a critical first impression. Ace yours by repainting your entry door and polishing the door handle. Potted plants on patios or balconies also make the outside of your home feel welcoming.

Pro Tip: Colorful flowers on window sills look great indoors and add to the outside appeal.

Do you need help staging your home? Or maybe you have budget concerns about upgrades needed before you list. Reach out today. Let’s make sure we maximize the appeal of your home, simply and cost-effectively.
