~Who's Doing the Talking? - 05:26 AM
What a wonderful world we Realtors live in! Something new every day...and lots of clients who need our experience and guidance.... And yet, my observation is that we often put ourselves too much in the conversation, especially when we're delivering pricing advice. The "My price is...", or "I think the house will sell if we price it at..." just gets us into so much trouble. You've heard it, as have I. 30-60 days after listing when the Seller is irritated that the house hasn't sold, we get to be the bad guy because we "priced the house."

Boca Raton Real Estate Market - 12:32 PM
Latest Breaking News on Housing Market First up is some positive breaking news for the housing market. Shadow inventory of homes is declining, providing a dose of good news for the glum housing market. Shadow inventory, or homes on the verge of foreclosure, fell to 1.6 million units representing a five-months supply in July compared to 1.9 million units representing a six-months supply a year ago, according to CoreLogic. It’s a good sign that troubled homes, normally headed toward foreclosures, are getting sold faster. Lesser inventory will help stabilize falling prices on homes for sale. Of course we won’t be seeing (0 comments)

Frequently Asked Question: What Is The Limit On Raising Rent in Florida? - 10:31 PM
Here is the question that I have just received, and this questions comes quite often: - I have a month-to-month tenant paying me $1,100. I want to have a one-year lease with monthly payments at $1,200. The tenant says the rent can’t go more 3% a year. What is the limit on raising the rent in Florida? The right answer would be that the limit is set by the market. When market was going crazy, rents were high and were increasing every year. When the market collapsed many kept the rent flat and even reduced it. You can only go with (39 comments)
Last week in our Nations's Capitol I was representing The Oklahoma Association of REALTORS® as their President-Elect. A week out of your schedule which happens more than once in a year is something most of us really don't want to do, we would rather concentrate on sales and spend out free time on vacation. However, I can't think of a more crucial time to get out of that mentality than now because much is under assault that makes our carreers possible and this is because homeowner's have so much to lose. Here are some bullet points I came away (1 comments)

Renting vs. Buying in 2012 - 05:47 AM
If the media has you confused as to whether you should buy or rent you may want to read Liz Davidson’s Forbes article about the subject. The Next Mortgage Crisis. Davidson, the CEO of financial education company Financial Finesse, argues that renters set themselves up for financial failure in retirement: “Today, there’s another mortgage crisis in the works — that is, NOT having one — choosing to rent when you can afford to buy; choosing to forgo building equity in a home as a major source of retirement security — something that may be more necessary now than ever before with (3 comments)
