ralph gorgoglione: The Meaning of Intrinsic Value in Real Estate - "What's It Worth"? - 10/18/14 01:00 AM
The Meaning of Intrinsic Value in Real Estate - "What's It Worth"?
 
In residential real estate, one of the most important factors is valuation.  What is a property worth?  Seems simple, right?  Just see what has sold in the neighborhood and you should get a pretty good idea, yes? Just get an appraisal, correct?  Well, the valuation of residential real estate is not quite that simple.
 
In the mix of residential real estate valuation is a huge principle called "intrinsic value".  Huge enough that you can sometimes call it the "elephant in the room".  What I mean by that … (23 comments)

ralph gorgoglione: How To Hold Your Leverage As A Real Estate Agent In A Changing World - 07/25/14 01:09 AM
How To Hold Your Leverage As A Real Estate Agent In A Changing World
Real estate agents wear many hats.  Those of us who have been in the business for a while can certainly attest to having played such roles of broker, stager, psychologist, friend, designer, accountant, attorney, babysitter, petsitter, housekeeper, counselor, chauffeur, and on occasion - chief bottle washer.
The traditional role of a real estate agent used to hold much more "mystery" behind it.  Mostly stemming from what properties are on the market as well as what properties are coming up soon.  Those agents who have been in the business … (23 comments)

Ralph's Gluten-Free Update - The LA Real Estate Market As I "Seez" it....June 8th, 2014
OK, Peeps.  So we're hummin' along.  Still quite a bit of activity in the market.  Multiple offers on those properties that show well and are priced correctly. 
Home prices continue to rise based on the low inventory levels.  Interest rates took a slight dip last week for the first time in a while.  This will continue to keep the market stimulated as the lower rates continue to make the payments for most folks affordable.  Conforming loans ($417,000 and below) are averaging around 4.25%.  I did, however, … (5 comments)

ralph gorgoglione: I rarely do this, but just wanted to share this quote....... - 04/16/14 01:55 AM
I rarely do this on a blog post, but I just wanted to share this quote........
"Good people are not those who lack flaws, the brave are not those who feel no fear, and the generous are not those who never feel selfish. Extraordinary people are not extraordinary because they are invulnerable to unconscious biases. They are extraordinary because they choose to do something about it."
- Shankar Vandantam
I really love this quote and wanted to share. It's how you deal with your humanity that creates your character. With Media, TV and film, we get so much idealism that it … (13 comments)

Some interesting statistics for 2013.........
A recent National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) report, from data collected in 2013, revealed many insights into current buyer and seller habits. Highlights of the report include:

The average homebuyer is 42 years old, while the typical first-time homebuyer was 31 and the average repeat buyer was 52. Buyers over the age of … (6 comments)
