Zooming house prices

Two years ago the houses on in my area were being sold in the low-mid $200s. Now there are two houses on the market listed for a hair under $300k, and one that just went on the market for a a little over $300k.

Zowie. I never would have thought it would take less than two years for houses around here to break the $300 mark.

Guess it's time to start thinking about getting some of those upgrades done that we couldn't afford to do when we bought this place. One of my goals this summer is to finish the hardwood flooring project and fence in the yard. The dogs will like being able to run around in the yard without having to be staked out.
