cedar city: Real Estate Assistants: To Be Licensed or Not--That Is The Question! - 01/28/10 12:35 PM
The answer is a resounding, YES!"  I was thinking today about a trip coming up for me in the near future!  I love relaxing to the sound of ocean waves while reading a book and napping in the warm sun!  Suddenly, I felt gratitude for my licensed assistants.  I can leave with the knowledge that my assistants will continue to give my clients the same quality of service that they would get if I were there!  That's very comforting because it is very important to me to always give top service.
I have had real estate agents try to talk me … (2 comments)

cedar city: Cedar City REALTORs Sold More Homes In 2009, But Market Prices Dipped! - 01/26/10 04:46 PM
I hope and pray that prices don't dip anymore!  I keep thinking that for sure this is the bottom.  Then prices dive again.  Then I find myself thinking again that this has got to be the bottom.  I really believe we have hit bottom, and the only way to go is up.  Don't you agree?
One thing this real estate market has taught me is that no one can predict the top or bottom of any market.  That's why I'm hanging onto my real estate!  I know it will go back up again; and in the meantime, I still have my real estate!  It … (3 comments)

cedar city: Working The Holiday--Not Unusual For Real Estate Agents--Right? - 01/18/10 02:30 PM
I'm sure I'm not the only one working today!  The thing that surprised me is that all of my assistants worked today also!  We did take time out for breakfast to honor Martin Luther King Day.  After work, my husband made a delicious meal of beef stew, and our daughter made home-made bread.  It was a great day for family, yummy food and real estate all mingled together. 
Sandwiched in with the holiday somewhere, we managed to show homes, get an offer accepted on a home, get approval for a land parcel listing and many other busy-day REALTOR activities.  What a productive day!

cedar city: Cedar City, Utah, Real Estate Update! Hard Work, Dreams & Love Win! - 01/16/10 01:15 PM
I went to see The Princess and The Frog today with 2 adorable grandchildren and their grandfather!  As their grandmother, I actually thought valuable lessons were taught that applied to real life including real estate!  Without ruining the story-line for you, I will just say that you must not just dream, but you must work hard to make the dream come true.  I also loved the lesson that you must never lose sight of what is really important while your are working toward your goals and dreams.  There's more to that movie in my opinion than just a simple cartoon.
According to a … (0 comments)

cedar city: Cedar City, Utah, REALTORS sold more homes in 2009 than 2008! - 01/13/10 03:16 PM
According to Chris Dahlin, our Iron County Board of REALTORS president, local real estate agents sold a few more homes this year than last which is very good news.  Chris made this comment at our board luncheon today.  He said our median price range had gone down, however, which is not surprising considering the number of foreclosures on the market.  The thing that makes me really happy is that we seem to be getting more buyers. That's good news for everyone no matter how you look at it!
The real estate market seems to be on the rebound for 2010.  Real estate agents … (1 comments)

cedar city: Utah Economic Outlook Getting Better - 12/22/09 12:36 PM
I receive The "Insight" Economic News of Utah and the Nation.  I read in Vol. 13  No.1 today that Utah economy is expected to continue its transition from a painful recession to modest economic growth.  That would be in line with the slow improvement in a majority of the nation's states.  I believe that is true.
Our own Iron County experienced a 12.11% rise in the average price of homes sold in 3rd quarter over 2nd and a 34.59% increase in the number of sold homes in this same period of time.  That is a great sign for the housing market … (2 comments)

cedar city: R U Happy About The Tax Credit Extension and Addition For Home Owners? - 11/16/09 01:02 PM
I've heard lots of controversy on both sides for and against the up to $8,000 tax credit extension for home buyers who haven't owned a home in the last 3 years.  Back and forth; back and forth!  I've also heard pros and cons for the addition of current home owners who have owned their home 5 out of the last 8 years.  How about you? What do you think? Let's vote!  For?  Against?
I figure it really doesn't matter whether I agree thoroughly or don't agree at all.  It's here. 
I just hope buyers don't wait until the last minute to take advantage of … (2 comments)

cedar city: How Did November Get Here Already? Let's Be Grateful for Real Estate! - 11/02/09 06:06 AM
Trick or treaters have gone and somehow November rushed in to take its place!  I love November and Thanksgiving and couldn't help but feel joyful as I crunched leaves walking to the office this morning!  I love crunching leaves!  Just a few days ago I was thinking how much fun it is to crunch snow!  Soon, I'll enjoy breaking layers of thin ice!  I do love the 4 seasons we enjoy here in Cedar City, Utah. 
Speaking of time, It's a great time to buy real estate while there is a crisp, cool feeling in the air! Interest rates are low and so are prices.  Great … (1 comments)

cedar city: Cedar City, UT, Real Estate News! Investors Return! What about your area? - 10/21/09 05:00 PM
Are investorys back in your real estate market?  To what level--many or few?  We are seeing  some investors back in our area!  That's a really great sign for a market turnaround in my opinion.  What do you think?  One of my investors just signed closing documents today on a 4-plex.  It was a great buy!  There are lots of great buys on multi-units, and I believe we will see more investors taking advantage of these great deals while both rates and interest are low at the same time!  Do you agree the time is here?

cedar city: What Reallty Counts Is Honesty In The Real Estate Industry From All! - 09/29/09 02:38 PM
I have just been reading some of the blog comments from you fine real estate agents on Active Rain!  Some of them made me want to confirm that when all is said and done, the most important part of every transaction is honesty from the buyer, seller and real estate agents.  Without it, we might as well find a new place to work! 
I would say that "Do unto others as you would have others do unto you," would apply to all concerned here.  We need to start caring for each other in this world starting now.  What do you think?

cedar city: To Have Government Incentives Or Not To Have Government Incentives? - 09/22/09 09:28 AM
That is the question!  So many in this real estate market believe that we need the incentives to keep the real estate market moving.  I'm thinking it moved before, why can't it move again?  Did the population stop growing?  Are people living in tents and RV's?  If there is an incentive and then suddenly there is no incentive, what then?  What is on the other side of the incentive?  Think!  Can incentives go on for ever?  Where is the ATM that will provide all this money?
What are your thoughts on this question?  Please email naisbitt@infowest.com to discuss.  i'd love to … (4 comments)

cedar city: Enjoy Searching For Homes In One of Southern Utah's Country Settings! - 07/20/09 03:31 PM
Sunday was spent in Milford, Utah, where our great-granddaughter, Jaidyn Marie, was blessed.  It was a beautiful day with a slight breeze.  I enjoyed the peace and relaxation away from the stress of the world beginning with the drive through the hills, trees & greenery between Cedar City and Milford.  It seemed like a page out of time.  We had a great picnic at the Pavillion!  Smell the hamburgers?  It just doesn't get any better than spending time with husband, children, their spouses, grandchildren, family and friends.
Being a REALTOR, however, it is difficult to do anything without at least thinking about real estate.  I thought what … (0 comments)

cedar city: Have A Great Weekend--Hopefully Buying Cedar City, Utah, Real Estate! - 06/19/09 06:29 PM
I spoke to an appraiser yesterday that believes the market may have bottomed out in March for Cedar City, Utah real estate.  My assistant Matt and I are working with 3 buyers tomorrow.  We are certainly seeing more accepted offers on properties and are very busy working with buyers and making offers and negotiating contracts.  It's too soon to tell if the market may be turning around, but I believe it is definitely more active.  I hope the appraiser is correct and that it is not just a spurt.  It's tough to guess the bottom, so I believe you should buy now.  … (0 comments)

cedar city: Cedar City, UT, Homes For Sale Are Turning Into Homes Sold! - 06/08/09 04:00 PM
We're seeing a good kind of busy in the Cedar City, Utah, Real Estate market.  I love it when we are busy presenting offers, negotiating contracts, going to closings, faxing contracts, faxing instructions to title company, setting up sales in progress and so on. 
Of course, we love to list properties, and we love to show properties.  There's no way to succeed without buyers and sellers, and we always do our best to give them top service.  However, the most exciting part of real estate sales is seeing people happy in their new homes or seeing them make money on their real … (0 comments)

cedar city: Cedar City Real Estate Sales Must Be Up! - 05/28/09 06:44 PM
I am "burning the midnight oil" as my mom used to say.  Another of her favorite sayings is, "You're burning the candle at both ends."  I guess working late hours must come naturally in my family!  It's important to realize, however, that I wouldn't be working these late hours if there wasn't a lot of real estate work to do this late!  It's most exciting to see the real estate market buzzing with buyers, offers and even multiple offers on the bargain-priced & foreclosure properties!  What a busy day!
Why am I still here?  After a very busy day, I got an offer on one … (0 comments)

I'm new to the blogging world!  My goal with writing my blogs is to be either informative or helpful.  How do I know if I'm succeeding?  I'd like to get more comments, so I'd know if anyone is reading the blog.  How do I do that?
