Have the Seller Pay the Closing Costs - 05:00 PM
Now that the market has shifted from a strong sellers market to a buyers market, (shhh... some of the sellers don't know this yet) there are different ways that a buyer can take advantage of this.
Watching the Multiple Listing Service and listening to Realtors I am hearing that homes are on the market longer and sellers are not getting the list price for their home.

NORAD Tracks Santa Claus 2006 - 10:35 PM
For more than 50 years, NORAD and its predecessor, the Continental Air Defense Command (CONAD) have tracked Santa. The tradition began after a Colorado Springs-based Sears Roebuck & Co. store advertisement for children to call Santa on a special "hotline" included an inadvertently misprinted telephone number.

What Is A Buyer Broker? - 06:53 PM
Despite the success of many selling their own property I always recommend that every seller list their home with a knowledgeable, trained, and experienced agent. I also recommend that buyers obtain their own agent. I believe that to maintain fairness in the transaction it is crucial that both parties have their own agents. I recommend sellers hire a broker because I firmly believe that seller’s agents will net the seller more cash and it will often be more than enough to pay their commissions. In fact, I always list my own property and have no qualms about paying an agent to

The media has generated numerous articles on the plight of today's real estate market. By all accounts we are facing one of the worse real estate markets ever. This may be true for some sellers. Howvever, this is not the case for buyers. Buyers now rule. The adjustments in market pricing are part of the natural cyclical process. Truth be told, this market is not much different from the markets of the 1990s. There is however, a slight twist.

New for 2007!! Short Sale Solutions: An Instruction Guide for Real Estate Agents - 11:56 PM
Folks, wouldn't you all agree that when we, as a profession, are weak at providing a service, that it reflects poorly on all of us? Most of the education available on Short Sales is from investors to investors. What about real estate agents? Nearly all mortgage banks require for the property to be listed for sale when being considered for a shorted payoff. This means that a real estate agent must be involved. Well, who is teaching real estate agents how to effectively do Short Sales? How does a short sale change when the loan you're shorting is a FHA, Conventional, or VA loan?
