Ahhh, the beautiful autumn in Albuquerque. I was trying to assist my son Elliott in writing a poem about the season — trying I say as he is a 14 year old and anyone who knows 14 year olds likely knows you can’t tell them much. He’s writing a villanelle — complicated 19th century style. So, my recourse was to get back to real estate see what the Albuquerque housing market brings.
So, perhaps, for my entertainment, I’ll write a poem about the Albuquerque Real Estate Market. Yet I’m not brave or bold enough to go with the Villanelle. One well know Villanelle poem is Dylan Thomas, “Do Not Go Gently into That Good Night”. I’m brave, I’m bold, yet time constrained so let’s go with the Haiku………..perhaps you will post one too? The most common form for Haiku is three short lines. The first line usually
contains five (5) syllables, the second line seven (7) syllables, and the third
line contains five (5) syllables. Haiku doesn’t rhyme.
Lovely Lonely houses
Sitting, waiting to be wanted
Pretty much capsulizes our market, yet some of these lonely homes are being sold. And what is it that seems to sell? You got it………..pricing. Buyers are savvy. They know what they should be paying. More Haiku:
Watch the offers flow over
Gets new owners fast
Perhaps later this month I’ll try a Villanelle. Yet this week, I need to get out and take advantage of Albuquerque’s stunning fall weather and sell some homes. Just got an offer, will likely get more, on a well priced Short Sale. Good area, great price, seller working hard to make it happen.
So where’s your haiku — could be on housing, real estate or any such subject that floats your boat. And. or send me a Villanelle. Do we have real estate poets in our midst?
Love you guys!! pamela
