Cedar City Subdivisions...Eagle Point Townhomes.... - 08:42 AM
Eagle Point is another tremendous asset in the Cedar City Real Estate Market, this great condo complex is located at the North End of Cedar City. It consists of two story and single story units. The two story units were built in the mid 1990′s and are typically around 1600 square feet. They boast fairly large bedrooms and a single car garage. The single story units were built in another phase in the early 2000′s. They were initially marketed to retired people who didn’t want to deal with stairs. As far as I have been able to find out, the complex (3 comments)
How About This Slogan for JPMorgan Chase? - 07:07 AM
How did Jamie Dimon, the chairman and CEO of JPMorgan Chase, manage to lose $2 billion? You might ask why did the buyers of a Sacramento short sale cancel yesterday? Or, how did a Rocklin short sale go into escrow the day it came on the market? Why do people always want to know the why when the facts often speak for themselves. The "why" doesn't change the facts. It won't rewind the clock. I had agents yesterday begging me to call them back and explain why a short sale was no longer available. It was no longer available because it (8 comments)

What I Predicted 3 Years Ago - 11:49 AM
I’m not sure where folks got the idea that Realtors had a “Secret Crystal Ball” in their back pockets, but throughout the housing crisis these past (7) years, clients as well as friends, would ask me this question. “When do you think this housing crisis will end?” I would always tell them “towards the end of 2012.” March 28, 2012 an article appeared at www.DNNews.com The Headline stated: Housing Crisis to End in 2012 as Banks Loosen Credit Standards! The article went on to report the following: Capital Economics expects the housing crisis to end this year, according to a report (2 comments)
We read about the power of social media and how new medium makes the world operate better. Like most Realtors I use social media like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube and now Pinterest, to keep up and not miss out on the latest and the greatest mode of communication. I use them primarily to push my listings and services. I never really considered them as true two way communication modes.
I can honestly say I use them - but until today - I did not know how to use them effectively. Only today, did I learn the true (4 comments)

Burning HOT - Going COLD - Sometimes It's a Roller Coaster Ride With Buyers - 10:14 AM
Burning HOT - Going COLD - Sometimes It's a Roller Coaster Ride With Buyers It happens every once in a while that a buyer calls and they are absolutely positive that they want to buy a certain house that is for sale and are almost in a panic that someone else may buy it in the next 30 minutes BUT they haven't seen the house, it's maybe even been on the market for 6 months, and the price is not a steal. BUT still they are in a panic. I recently had one like that. So I scheduled them at (7 comments)
When you list your home for sale with a NH real estate agency, the goal is to get buyers in the door quickly to see your home and then to listen to what the buyers are saying. If there are objections, we need to overcome them if we can. If a buyer doesn't like the location which is across from the Fire Department, we can't do anything about that. But if the objection is that they don't like the (4 comments)

His philosophy mirrors mine which is Work And Play Blur Together And Can You Really Tell The Difference?
