The price of a haircut and a house...Different directions!

OK, I will be the first to admit to being frugal! As a real estate agent in the Viera, Rockledge and Suntree areas of Brevard County Florida, I know the real estate prices are dropping. I went get a haircut this morning and noticed an increase over the previous visit.

OK, so paying $20 (including the tip) is not a lot of money but the almost 20% increase in the base price was a surprise. Of course, the stylist (didn't we call them barber once?) has to make a living! And we did talk about the $200 price for the scissors he was using was more than when he started. I can relate, for sure.

The expense real estate agents incur to sell properties has risen as well. And, dad gummit (borrowed the phrase form FSU's Bobby Bowden), sellers need to sell as badly as some need haircuts!

If you are considering buying or selling a home in the Viera, Rockledge or Suntree areas, please give me a call. I will be the one with the fresh haircut!
