Here is an update on the market for February 2009 Each month I run stats on the St. Louis market, I'm amazed that homes are continuing to sell in just about 3 months.

st louis real estate: Great Stats on the market - Check out Altos Research - 02/20/09 04:23 PM
In the ever changing market, now (more than ever) it is necessary to be the true expert in our respective markets. Buyers want a deal, so we need to define what a "deal" is to determine the true Value they want to find in a home vs. the media reports that the real estate world is on proverbial life support and the housing market has collapsed. On the seller side, home owners are looking for a realtor to come in and truly guide them through the process from start to finish in way that wasn't as dire as recently as even 6 months ago.

st louis real estate: Today's Market, Today's Agents and January Stats! - 02/17/09 10:07 PM
My mantra in 2009: "In today's market, you are either ahead of the market or chasing it." I feel like a broken records. I say this to my buyers when they ask "How did that home sell in 3 days?" or "Why is this still on the market after 300+ days?". It's simple, "Exceed the market or chase it". I'm working with my broker on preparing training classes and mentor groups for our office. I'll be running an Intro. to Technology group while my husband will run the Advanced Technology group. As a result we discussed the agents in our office and it occurred (0 comments)

At this point, is there anyone that DOESN'T know the importance of professional photography when selling real estate in 2009? Apparantly, at least in our market, there are many people! As a result, we have begun creating professional videos to explain to our clients what they need to look for to make their home stand apart...this series of videos starts with photography, the gate keeper on the internet....the first impression that helps a buyer determine a level of interest to move forward or move on. Part I in our series deals with photography. Take a look at our new video. I don't (6 comments)
st louis real estate: Statistics on St. Louis County (Missouri) - 01/27/09 07:11 PM
It occurred to me after talking with an agent the other day that few agents in my market actually know how the market is doing. (i.e. What's selling? How often? Days on market? etc.) I'm posting market statistics for St. Louis County area, Single Family Residences, to share with you the healthy status of the St. Louis housing market. You'll see that the average days on market is 89 days for sold homes the past 6 months. Our market is healthy, all things considered. St. Louis County Listings per Status

st louis real estate: New Buyers - Gathering their information from the start! - 07/30/08 01:33 AM
I was reading another blog this evening and it discussed questions to ask a new client. That made me think of what we do when meet with a client for the first time. This is not the "What are you looking for in a home" approach. It allows us to gather information to "personlize" our follow up with clients both during the process and for years to follow. Here is the format of our Information Sheet: The St. Louis Agent Team In order to personalize our service to our clients, we like to get to know them from the very beginning! (0 comments)
