By Keith KyleAs a long time realtor in Redondo Beach it never ceases to amaze me how little effort sometimes goes into trying to sell a home.  I'm not sure if there's some very odd situation where owners want or need a home listed but don't actually want to sell it but once in a while I run into ...
I just wrote a long post about my website being hacked...or did I?  This is the second time that I wrote something only to hit the "write post" button on top when I was completed.  Granted this is my error but on my screen (which isn't so large) I can't see the info on the bottom when I'm typing ...
By Keith KyleI'm sure most MLS systems are different but here in the South Bay the days on market on the CRMLS can be a bit misleading.  Many buyer and agents use days on market as a negotiating tool....the longer the home has been on the market, the more leverage the buyer has to come in low or ...
I just received an email update (from myself) of the vacant listings in the area.  I like to have this list so that if I'm out and about I can pop in and preview a property, even if I don't currently have a buyer for it.  It's helpful in a number of ways and often times I'll go looking at it and ...
It sometimes amazes me just how fine a line it is between receiving multiple offers and having a home sit on the market.  As perception is such a big part of real estate, buyers often clamor to the newest listing.  I'm frequently asked how many offers we already have and are we going to wait a fe...
.....a balanced market this is not.  I'm fortunate in that I work in a very high end, high priced market in the South Bay of Southern California and highly demanded coastal communties of Manhattan Beach, Hermosa and Redondo Beach.  Our market doesn't seem to follow national trends and what's happ...
There are a lot of aspects to my job as a realtor.  Stager, negotiator, networker, marketer and I've even cleaned windows in the past when necessary.  Yesterday was a new one....I wanted to get a home slightly cleaned up for my buyer (it's been an endless probate sale so it's not going to be too ...
My office recently announced a merger with a Sotheby's affiliate which will certainly help brand ourselves even more in the luxury market of Manhattan Beach and the South Bay.  Yesterday we had a meeting about how Sotheby's would like us to present our listings with beautiful images, stunning vid...
Off market and pocket listings are all the rage in our local Manhatta Beach real estate market.  Demand is so far outpacing supply that multiple offers, all cash offers, and offers way over list price has become the new normal.  Given the inability for many home buyers to get the homes they want ...
Motivated buyers are great.  Motivated and frustrated buyers in the ultra high demand South Bay market we're currently in are challenging.  Unfortunately whenever a "special" listing hits the market there are usually 20 or 30 buyers bidding on the home, and many of them "need" to get this house. ...
