"Next Time Call 911 Before You Decide to Climb in a Window" Real Estate Comedy - 09/29/09 02:30 PM
Allow me to lay out the situation before I get into what actually happened...so I had shown a friend of mine a 3 unit, but we didn't have a key for the one unit and didn't know how to get in. He wanted to make an offer, but he said "I would really like to see that unfinished third unit." So doing my job I called the agent and asked how to get in...She said, "just climb in the window there isn't a key." My client and I meet at the property. We walk up to the unit and can (10 comments)
A fantastic Video Detailing Why Our Economy Is Where It Is - Peter Schiff Video - 09/29/09 11:18 AM
I'm a fan of Peter Schiff on Facebook. He posted this video today and I thought it was most certainly worth posting it here for everyone to see. Peter is a Stock broker, economist, and a very popular video blogger. He is running for Senate in 2010 and I think we need him to explain to these people in government how the economy actually functions. This is a speech given in November of 2006. It's so accurate it's hard not to listen to what he has to say. (2 comments)
Gettysburg PA buyers Agent - 09/21/09 01:53 PM
Before I get into the services I can provide as a buyer agent I'd like to talk a little about myself and my background. I graduated from Gettysburg high school in 2001. I spent my first year of college at Elizabethtown College where I played soccer and studied engineering. In 2002 I transferred to Gettysburg College (beautiful campus), where I continued to compete in athletics and changed my major to physics because Gettysburg College doesn't offer an Engineering program. I graduated with a major in physics and a minor in Math. I studied a lot of business my senior year, but (4 comments)
Sued for Overpricing a Listing - What on Earth... - 09/16/09 01:19 PM
Our local monthly real estate magazine for York and Adams counties just came out this week. An article featured in the publication noted a lawsuit for overpricing a listing. The seller actually won due to a violation of Article 1 of the Code of Ethics. The seller and Realtor agreed on a listing price of 156,900. The property wasn't generating interest over a 6 week period of time. The Seller called the Realtor obviously not pleased with the action on said property. The Realtor said the reason the property wasn't generating interest was because it was overpriced. The seller said "why (10 comments)
Are Appraisals Killing your deals? - 09/15/09 09:05 AM
This blog was spurred by a conversation with my mom, Karen Monsour (I think you all know her by now) about appraisal issues that are preventing deals from closing. In the past few weeks there have been a lot homes not appraising. One such deal was absolutely shocking. The home was listed at 500,000+, went under contract with a conventional loan. It's not often that conventional loans in my area have appraisal issues. This deal however ran into something that I find ridiculous at best. The lender that was doing the deal cannot pick her appraiser for conventional loans, but she can (4 comments)
The Gettysburg Homes and real estate information blog is my way of giving back to Gettysburg's people and my personal sphere of influence. The objective is to provide real time real estate information and it's potential effect on Gettysburg, PA.
The current real estate market is far from what one would call "normal." Changes are constant, which requires professional realtors to be knowledgable and capable of shifting with the market. The governments attempts to stimulate the market has also caused a steep learning curve for most buyers and sellers in the market. An understanding of the policies and procedures is just one way I can help you to the successful sale or purchase of a Gettysburg, Pa property.
I work both as a Gettysburg buyer agent, and a Gettysburg listing agent. I also enjoy the challenge of finding quality investment properties and helping buyers to ensure a desired profit margin.
If I can help you in any way feel free to call or send me an email. Quick response time and great communication are always my goal.
