Buyers: Are you waiting to hit one out of the park? - 01/27/12 10:45 AM
Buyers: If you are waiting to hit one out of the park, you might miss all the great 1st, 2nd, and 3rd base hits. I don't very often use sports metaphors, but this one seems appropriate. I'm telling my buyers now that if they keep waiting for that perfect deal, like in baseball, for that perfect "slam it out of the park," they'll miss all those great 1st, 2nd, and 3rd base deals. Don't be the buyer, that in 2013, regrets not buying last year when there was more inventory, fewer buyers, more especially good bargains, the interest rates were at historic (5 comments)

SOLD 42804 Woodcrest Dr, Cable, WI. 4 BR 2 BA home On January 12 I congratulated two of my buyers when they closed on their new home here in Northwestern Wisconsin. They sold their home in the Twin Cities metro area, and they’re really excited to be living here in the north woods. Earlier in the process, however, they experienced a few tense moments. They’re getting a great deal, and someone else thought the home seemed like a good buy, too. Suddenly, my buyers found themselves in a multiple-offer situation. Fortunately they were pre-approved, their financing was rock-solid, and they countered (0 comments)

4 reasons why selling your home on your own generally doesn't succeed - 01/09/12 01:01 PM
Why selling your home on your own generally doesn't succeed - reason #4 There are many reasons why selling FSBO is a difficult task to pull off. In reason #1, I discuss the wrong listing price. Reason #2 is lack of online exposure. Reason #3 buyers want your commission savings. #4 - Buyer qualifications and showing the home One important detail that for sale by owners may forget is that buyers can view a home at just about any time of day or day of the week. A buyer will likely lose patience if the seller cannot accommodate their schedule. The seller will need (0 comments)

Tips for a NW Wisconsin real estate market in transition - 01/03/12 08:59 AM
Tips for a NW Wisconsin real estate market in transition I have several buyers who are patiently watching the MLS listings for an especially good deal. I’ve also been passing along listings that seem like a good fit. Sometimes buyers have been ready to move quickly, and that’s paid off. Other buyers were busy with work and family commitments, and they needed to wait a couple weeks before we could schedule a showing. Sometimes that still works out. But on at least half a dozen occasions during the past few months, I’ve asked for a showing and learned that another buyer (1 comments)
