Tisa Silver, Investopedia.com Jan 12th, 2010 It's no secret that the favor of the housing market has shifted away from sellers and into the arms of buyers. With this shift, the U.S. map has been broken down in yet another economic manner--by housing conditions. Several factors can be used to examine how good or bad a market is for selling a house. We will examine several large cities on the basis of property value growth (or decline) and days on market. The Standard & Poor (6 comments)

2 River Edge home sales, same street, close 4 days apart - 01/12/10 02:25 PM
2 River Edge home sales, same street, close 4 days apart, both buyers are first time buyers that are teachers in the same town. This was a crazy coincidence that was a first for me in 16 years of selling real estate. I was working with 2 different first time buyers that were looking to take advantage of the first time buyer's tax credit. Both buyers were recommended to me, did not know each other & were looking in many different towns in Bergen County. I showed them the best homes in their price ranges. After showing them many homes, offers were made & accepted. Ironically, (0 comments)

Go Google yourself! - 01/08/10 01:18 PM
GO GOOGLE YOURSELF - THE IMPORTANCE OF GOOGLE SEARCHING.... YOU! Don't worry, I don't mean anything bad by the title. I had lunch with a friend and fellow real estate agent. While we were talking about real estate, she brought up a very smart question "Do you google yourself?". Luckily I have googled my name. I realize the importance of checking to see what comes up in a search of your name. Many people don't realize how important this is for business. This is how the public & potential new cutomers see you. This is their first impression of you. And, you know what is (7 comments)

Good Credit Score Not Good Enough Anymore - 01/06/10 12:23 PM
I found this on Yahoo Finance: Good Credit Score Not Good Enough Anymore by Melissa EzarikTuesday, December 29, 2009provided by With historically low rates, many homeowners are watching closely for the right time to refinance their mortgages. Those with good credit may well recall being showered with praise by a mortgage broker during the initial purchase for that solid credit score. That was then. This is now. A few years ago, a score of 620 or higher was good enough. That increased to 680 in early 2008. Then it jumped to 720 in April last year and 740 in August, says (5 comments)
