Property Sales: April 2019 vs April 2020

The chart shows the MLS statistics and roughly half as much Cape Ann real estate traded in April 2020 as in April of 2019.

But the story isn’t quite as grim. The good news is that it can still happen, even with our current restrictions in place, because some people really want to sell and some really want to buy.

Keeping Up With Your MEDS

Did it feel like March was the longest month ever? A friend told me to watch my MEDS.

Here’s what he meant:

  • Meditation: as in prayer and meditation. There are a lot of good teachers. But Deepak Chopra is one of our favorites. He has a 21 day guided practice that is free and easy to follow, even if you’ve never meditated. You’ll find it at https://chopra.com/ . (It’s about HOPE!)
  • Exercise: Keep the body moving. Walk it. Twist it. Make it jump up and down. https://dailyburn.com/ offers a 60 day free trial and https://digitalstudio.theclass.com/ streams live and offers a 14 day trial. We also found lots of free yoga and workouts on YouTube.
  • Diet: We know that some foods “feel” good when we eat them but aren’t good for us so we’re keeping a close eye on what we’re eating.
  • Sleep: Even though it may feel like we’re not as busy as we usually are, our bodies and minds are definitely stressed. Both need regular R&R.
    So we’re not staying up all night watching Netflix.
Adjust, let go, breathe. Repeat.

How to visit the kids, throw a dinner party, take a class. Safely.

Zoom.com has become a life-line tool that’s going to help us get through the next few weeks of social distancing. You may have already used it for work. If you haven’t or don’t know what it is, read on …

 

What is Zoom? Think “conference call” but with a camera. The camera is key:

  • My wife taught a yoga class on Zoom Saturday.
  • Last night we had dinner with friends on Zoom.
  • My niece may have her wedding shower on Zoom.

You can use zoom.com to participate in almost any event, with others, no matter where they are. And you don’t have to be in the same room with them.

  • It’s cheap: there’s a decent “free” account or it’s about $15 a month for PRO
  • It’s easy. If you have a smart phone (iPhone, etc) or a laptop or a tablet, any device with a camera, it’ll work.
  • And it’s about as social as we can get during our “new normal”.

Once you’ve signed up, take a look at this link. It’s our favorite quick tutorial with Farrah explaining the controls: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/115005759423-Managing-participants-in-a-meeting
