Not necessarily true that, the constant turnover (sales) which means old citizens leave and new enter our stable community is (turn-over) a good reason to be the cheerleader to arouse Bayou Vista to a celebration of and as "Great News".
I understand your (a realtor) enthusiasm and point of view. While understanding I do not have enthusiasm for possible “progressive” changes to our stable community’s peace and tranquility.
Certainly, the realtors and cad (taxing entities) enjoy the increase in their revenues as the prices of homes go up.
Sellers are incentivized for many reasons. Some to reap a financial reward from tax-free homestead churning. Some have surrendered the struggling to meet the increasing tax burdens. All while, the real estate professionals do their best to promote and incentivize any reluctant (known prospect) seller with any tool they can apply – fee negotiation, doing all the details, finding the next churn property, etc.
The enjoyment of having a home in a stable, peaceful community is what is best celebrated and that in itself is a buyer incentive not needing promotion.
Especially attractive is that while the surrounding communities are experiencing chaos Bayou Vista has been insulated. Not insulated by overt security actions but simply because civility is the primary endeavor of all our resident citizens.
A few examples of civility to stressful occurrences’: No incidents of police unjustified actions or brutality during confrontations or arrests - Our community's reasonable reactions to flaws of the public services - i.e., water quality in canals. These illustrate BV’s quality of constant civility that should be celebrated.
Knowing this diatribe will have no effect it is cathartic to my anxiety on the state of our society.
Please God, please, Bless Bayou Vista and America.
