Everything you wanted to know about Lakengren but were afraid to ask... - 04/27/09 10:42 AM
I posted a blog the other day on my friend and fellow agent Steve Hafle's awesome Lakengren-dedicated website, www.lakengrenhomes.com. I hope you will check it out. During that blog I brought up the question "Should the Realtor you work with live in the area you are buying?" I think it helps. That being said, a good Realtor takes the time to educate his or herself on MANY areas, as most folks don't pick just ONE to start off. Except for maybe someplace like Lakengren. Let's face it, some people are very opposed to the idea of a gated community and the (0 comments)

Sticking to my guns - 04/17/09 12:07 PM
I recently listed a house here in Preble County that had been on the market a few times before. It was an expired that I worked. The sellers were skeptical to say the least about real estate agents, as in past cases, there had been a lot of OVER-promising and UNDER-delivering. The sellers had little faith that Realtors are worth what they get paid. So I went into this full force, determined to change the stereotype of my profession, if nothing else. About a month into the listing, we get an offer. I called the clients and asked them to please (11 comments)
Home Sweet Home - What's it worth? - 04/17/09 11:05 AM
A Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) can instantly bring you up to speed on the true market value of your home. As the name suggests, a CMA compares your house with similar ones on the market during a specific time period. Location and characteristics of the property are the key elements in determining value. The CMA takes into account the amount received from recent sales of comparable properties and the quality and quantity of properties currently on the market. The desired end result is to find a price that will attract a willing and able buyer in a reasonable time. Once the (1 comments)
For Sale By Owner - writing effective ads - 04/16/09 02:48 PM
Trying to sell your home by yourself? Here are some tips on writing effective ads; advertisements that GRAB the buyer and make them want more! 1. List all of the best features of your home and pick the top 5.
2. Use an attention grabbing opening statement about the house. Such as: Boring opener = clean Attention grabbing opener = Better-than new. Blue-ribbon condition. Showroom fresh.
3. Less is more. Include some facts about the house (bedrooms, bath, price and definately square footage) but keep it brief.
4. Use words that appeal to all of the senses. (7 comments)
The Art of Negotiating - 04/15/09 03:13 PM
Everyone loves a great deal, right? The same can be true when you are purchasing a home. Buyers want to feel that they are getting the very best deal possible. The BEST value for the money. Fair enough. Sellers also want to feel that they are getting top dollar for thier home. Getting "whats' fair". OK. But how do you put these two sides together, into a deal that works? It's a lot more comlicated than you might even think. But here are a few suggestions that can help you navigate thru a home offer: 1. Keep it clean. No, that (6 comments)
Lake Lakengren: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. - 04/02/09 03:51 PM
You know, it's funny...I seem to get one of two opinions whenever I mention Lakengren to people. 1. Love it. 2. Hate it. There seems to be no middle ground here. So when I work with home buyers, I usually will ask them to humor me one time and take a look at something in Lakengren, just to give it a shot. If its still no dice, thats OK. I'm in the camp of "Love it". My family and I have lived in Lakengren since 2001. I dont know, to be honest, if I would pick Lakengren again for our next (0 comments)
