Final Four Hockey had us riveted as Home town boy brings BC to a win.... - 04/17/08 06:06 AM
Ok... so just need to share this with the Active RAin community. Kitty Muse is an agent in my office, she is also my tennis partner and good friend. Her son John has been in my life for 10 years and I have watched him grow into a fine young man. This past weekend the Cape Cod community was riveted to the TV as young John Muse joined his Boston College team on the ice as the goalie in Denver. John is a 19 year old freshman and we were all so excited that he was (is) living his dream. Kitty, has put (2 comments)
Multiple offers and home sale contingency.... - 04/17/08 05:52 AM
Could it be that this is a sign that the market is turning? I have not seen multiple offers on Cape Cod in several years but this past weekend we have experienced 3 properties with multiple offers and a couple of home sale contingencies. Is this a sign that buyers are growing more comfortable with our economy or just their economy? Or is it that the experienced realtor is just priceing property right... slightly under value to create excitement? Could it be the experienced realtor has realized that the way to truly serve the seller is to create excitement and possibly sell (7 comments)
Selling, Selling, Selling, I am happy Selling.... CApe Cod.... - 04/13/08 06:45 AM
Between last week and this the sky opened up and sent the buyers in droves to CApe Cod. Buyers are contemplating their summer plans, looking for the Cape Cod Memory or relocating for thier jobs. Century 21 Open House month is going well with multiple offers on some properties... Could this be the market is on its way back up? ON our first weekend of open houses we held 14 and sold 4. One house had 4 offers on it and sold for over asking. Pretty good weekend? I was able to secure 7 new buyers clients and am actively searching (3 comments)
Service... Being a Friend in Need is a friend in deed.... - 04/07/08 09:22 AM
This weekend was a busy weekend for me. Loads of business and open houses. I had a blast. When I finally had time to look at the Cape Cod Times newspaper I was shocked to see my dear friends son in the headlines. Seems he firebombed a house full of sleeping babies... Four small children and two parents. The firebomb landed on the childrens bed. Everyone got out safely but the house was destroyed and he was in the paper in hand cuffs along with some of his gang members. The paper said it was over a screw driver... huh? Please... What (5 comments)
BEING THE OPEN HOUSE, Thanks Rainers - 04/06/08 06:55 AM
Yesterday I asked the questions "to Open House or Not"...what is the benefit? Many of you replied with some skepticism, some of you thought Open Houses were a good idea... and all who responded seemed to feel Open Houses are worth a try... I think perception is key... How we view something brings us to it or away from it. I took my crazy day of 3 open houses and decided "This is going to be fun". Embrace the OPEN HOUSE, I said to myself. Stop viewing it as a waste of time. ENJOY THIS CRAZINESS>>>>( My brother who is a professional (19 comments)
OPen Houses or Not? What is your take on Open Houses? - 04/05/08 05:59 AM
It is open house month for Century 21 around the Globe and our Company is hitting the ground running by scheduleing over 60 Open Houses for the month of April. The question is ... Do open houses work? I mean how many of us have sold the house we sat in for two hours at the open house? In my 10 year career I can maybe count 2 houses that actually sold as a result of the open house. This is out of several hundred open houses that I have had. Now ... I have been able to convert some buyers (12 comments)
Say it in Pictures... Mix em up.... - 04/04/08 07:07 AM
As I shop the internet for my buyers I am stunned that in this beautiful time called SPRING... there are still photos of houses under the grasp of SNOW! I invite all listing agents to pull out their digitals and retake their photos...do it for your seller, do it for the other agents, do it for your bank account. PLEASE. There is no excuse for photos to still have snow on the ground, at least not on Cape Cod. The snow has been gone for weeks, the daffodils are in bloom, the grass is turning green and houses are looking better and (14 comments)
Fingers on the pulse of the market....BUYING THE LISTING - 04/03/08 07:35 AM
I heard it said yesterday at an MLS breakfast that we wont know when we hit bottom until we start to climb back up... I have heard this before. My crystal ball has been broken for years so I can't even go down the road of speculating when that trip back up will be...but what I do know ... As a full time full service realtor... I know what is happening NOW. I know how to advise my buyers and sellers on the current state of the REal Estate Market. on beautiful Cape Cod. What astounds me... as I navigate listings (5 comments)
Thank YOU Active RAin....first customer as a result of my Blog.... - 04/01/08 11:19 PM
Ok so I am new to this... I have not learned the whole ad a photo or some cute graphic. I am not even completely sure when the video's started? I do check in occasionally but now that I have so much going on not as much as I first did...I do, however, put my blog link on all my communications. I encourage people to check in on what I am doing, thinking, blogging. I love the feedback and I "get it" when my kids tell me I need to be on FAce Book and have a blog and know how (57 comments)
Can "Features" of a property make the deal stick? - 04/01/08 07:07 AM
Recently had an offer where the buyer wanted water access to the pond from the property across the street from the pond. The seller thought there was an EASMENT with her deed to the right of way because in her 35 years of owning the property she and her neighbors would use the area in questions to access the water. However, years have passed and the area in question is over grown and not passable ... so what is it actually? She hired an attorney to figure it out... because it was a potential deal breaker. The attorney explained to me (1 comments)
