"Magic letter" makes some Knoxville sales fly. - 01/31/08 02:36 PM
Whenever you submit an offer on behalf of a customer or buyer client, have you thought of writing a cover letter to go along with your offer to give the sellers some idea of what your buyer is about, why they want to buy the seller's house, and any other information that might cause the sellers to see the buyers as real people instead of just a couple of names on a piece of paper? This also works if you're representing a seller and present a counter offer back to a buyer. I've been doing that in some situations for many years now (11 comments)
Knoxville Tennessee 2007 Home Sales Report is now available - 01/19/08 08:56 PM
The long awaited 2007 Sales Report for the greater Knoxville Tennessee area is finally available. It shows the numbers for the greater Knoxville area were't too shabby at all. Sales volume declined 10.8% overall but average sales prices increased the usual 3-5% coming in a 4.4% for 2007. Days on market increased 9 days from 83 in 2006 to 92 in 2007. 2008 has already started out pretty strong for January so I look for 2008 to be somewhere between 2006 and 2006. Stay tuned.

What do your website statistics tell you? - 01/14/08 08:24 AM
It's always interesting and a little amazing to review my website statistics to see when and where, and when my visitors are coming from and how they're getting there. It seems to be a fluid set of statistics with the peak days and hours changing from month to month. This month I noticed my peak hours have gone from 11:00 AM until about 3:00 in the afternoon Eastern time to the new viewing peak times of 2:00 PM until around 4:00 PM with another spike from around 7:00 PM until 9:00. The most heavily visited days are now Wednesdays and Thursdays whereas (4 comments)
January beach view at Hilton Head Island, South Carolina I've just finished emailing a home inspection contingency release to a buyer after negotiating a cash settlement for some defects revealed during our home inspection back in Knoxville yesterday. I called my buyer via cell phone and instructed him to fax the signed copy to my MyFax email account so I can forward it to the seller's agent who is also back in Knoxville. Since we arrived Sunday I've also scheduled closings for the 3 sales I completed (4 comments)
