When they esca- late, you keep a closer eye on competing brands, don't you? You may switch form brand "T" to brand 'A" or "E" as you notice one of them is 2 per gallon less. So - what's this got to do with selling your home? Everything- because buyers also comparison shop. Interest rates are at a 30- year low making a home pur- chase attractive right now. Nevertheless, with the economy wavering, buyers are more price conscious. If your home is com- parable to three others in lea- Kay Fards tures and amenities, but priced 2%-5% higher, yours may be eliminated from the final selec- tion. This is not to say that buy- ers are suddenly in total control. They're just becoming more careful about over-paying for the right home. You can keep your home at the top of their list by being just as careful about your asking price. When listing your home, ask your Realtor for a thorough analysis of sales in your area. Then, price your home accord- ingly. Buyers recognize homes priced fairly and often pay full price for them. Call Kay or Leah today.

"Back in 1978)' Wellen- brock said, "when Jerry Kehr approached me with the idea of starting a bank, I never dreamed it would be such a rewarding experience. I am proud of the achievements Plumas Bank has accom- plished and I appreciate the opportunities I had to serve the people and to improve the quality of life in our commu- nities." She added, "The future holds great promise for Plumas Bank, and I leave the board confident that it is in good hands." Bill Elliott, president and chief executive officer of Plumas Bank, commented, "Jessie is one of the pioneers thatstarted it all. The entire board and I will miss her leadership and sage advice." He continued, "In her 21 years, Plumas Bank has grown from an idea to the leading, locally managed community bank in North- eastern California. Jessie was vital to our success. It has been a real pleasure dear friend and colleague. Born in Oregon, Wellen- brock came to Chester in 1943.
