Here's another recent example of a continuation of the mortgage mess and how it can affect those trying to buy a home.
Client has a property, owner occupied, and wants to buy another in the same neighborhood. He likes the neighborhood and is happy he can move up to a larger unit at a much better price than a couple years ago. Client wants to rent out his smaller property, buy the larger unit with a 25% down payment, and owner occupy the larger unit for several reasons.

I admit it, when I list a home, I ask for feedback, I hope it is honest, but I tell every seller to take the feedback with a grain of salt. In every feedback there is a glimmer of truth, but you have to seek it out and most sellers and their agents can't do that.
The key to being a good listing agent is to read between the lines, to find out the truth, what ever it may be. You see, most buyers won't tell a seller the truth as they (13 comments)
Agents switch companies all the time because the grass is greener on the other side. New companies are starting and closing everyday in this crazy real estate market. But, would you make the switch to a company that in less than four years has help agents earn over a billion dollar in commissions?
Now, what if I told you this company had no desk fees, no transaction fees and charged less than $400 a year to help agents realize these huge commissions? This company and its agents give free education on a daily basis. They offer free things (17 comments)

Is December the Friday of the Year? - 02:35 PM
Is December the Friday of the Year? It's that time of year again when every day is Friday. Sitting here after lunch, it hit me that it felt like it must be Friday. I had to think about the fact that it was still Tuesday. The lady who waited on me in the grocery store didn't know what day of the week it was either, she thought it was Friday. Had a closing this morning at 11, so I got some paperwork and emails done early. After the closing my work day was basically over. Now all my closings for this month (5 comments)

protect your commission - 03:41 PM
This is a continuation on my "are all agents interchangeable" theme. Of course commission rates are open to negotiations. However, with so many agents offering "full service" at a "discounted Rate" you have to be on your game with your value proposition. What does Full Service actually mean. Does this mean they put in the MLS, Put a sign in your yard and pray one of us brings a buyer? Do they activally work for find a buyer? I got a call today from a friend, who I called to tell her about the new tax credit adn how it could (2 comments)

Thank You Active Rainers for a Wonderful and Successful Year! Happy Thanksgiving! - 12:07 AM
I needed to decompress today. For some reason putting up my Christmas Tree sounded relaxing...I don't know why. It was a relaxing, enjoyable and wonderfully decompressing experience that melted away the stress that real estate tends to create in my life. As I put individual ornaments on the tree I strolled down memory lane remembering the significance of many of the ornaments. Many of them my children had made over the years, others were gifts from special friends, many were given by my husbands students and there were those my husband and I purchased that we felt had meaning for our family. I was a little sad at first (3 comments)
