Accepted Offer, Now Let's go Buy - OR NOT? - 10/20/10 09:59 PM
Used to be; once you've negotiated an offer on your listing, you'd be in the car with your sellers, now your buyers - on your way to buying a bigger better home. Not so fast.... Explain 'why you should slow down' to your sellers. Explain what CAN go wrong to them and you'll be talking for an hour with them on the multiple possibilities of what COULD go wrong. No one wants to be negative but let's face it...it's not over til it's over and I subscribe to laying it all out on the table so everyone knows what COULD go (5 comments)
I'm a Realtor, because I was a buyer... - 10/20/10 09:09 AM
Some 12 years ago, I was a "First Time Home buyer" and my first mistake was not interviewing agents that would help me buy my home. I chose him from a picture and shallow me, he had a nice mustache. [He didn't look like his picture but I didn't want to be rude once we started]
The second mistake I made was not buying a home warranty nor was I offered one and didn't know about them either. Third was an inspection nightmare and the pressure of the market/agent to overlook things or someone else would snatch up my home.
Sit or Sell, What's it Gonna Be? - 10/18/10 10:19 AM
Heard it before? Many Times!This is NOT a discretionary sellers market. Look at what's being sold. Consider the square footage and upgrades. Price to Sell OR.....Price to Sit! If you're not getting 3-5 showings a week and If you're not willing to make the adjustment in price or change the condition, sit.....but kindly sit with someone else. When you're ready to sell, just call. Respectfully,
Why my listing is not selling, Its a Price War and a Beauty Contest - 10/17/10 04:25 PM
My hope is this blog won't be redundant but instead help someone who has had the same questions as I. Have we heard of the 8 second rule; Buyers have a tendency to make the big decision of whether or not they will make an offer on the home, in the first 8 seconds Not Selling, no offers? I always ask myself these questions: Is it the Staging? Some houses are vacant and so we have to consider trying some little things which can be done to make kitchens and baths look warmer. Towel racks, table settings, floral arrangements etc. Is it (4 comments)
