Breach of Oklahoma Real Estate Contract – Possible Repercussions - 01/29/12 07:20 PM
Breach of Oklahoma Real Estate Contract - Possible Repercussions The Oklahoma Uniform Contract for Residential Contract of Sale of Real Estate is very specific about repercussions when the contract is breached by the Buyer or Seller. During the time period allowed for inspections and finalizing of financing, there are several instances where either party can legally cancel the contract. However after that time period is up, there are possible repercussions if one party elects to not follow through with the transaction. If the Buyer changes his mind after the allotted time period and if the Seller has performed all obligations (2 comments)

Easy Moves Tulsa - locally-owned Tulsa moving company You know that I love to support locally-owned business, and I'm pleased to tell you about a new Tulsa locally-owned moving company called Easy Moves. I met with President, Andrew Wilson who recently returned from Afghanistan, and he is all about proficiency, consistency and customer service - qualities that are a "must have" for any business I endorse. Easy Moves is a moving company that will do small or large jobs, residential or commercial. One big plus is that they only have a 1-hour minimum - well BELOW the industry standard. There (0 comments)
What to do with pets when your Tulsa home for sale is on the market - 01/27/12 11:23 AM
What to do with pets when your Tulsa home for sale is on the market Sometimes a challenge to home Sellers is what to do with their pets when their Tulsa home for sale is on the market. Ideally, we don't want to request more than an hour's notice to show your home, so it needs to be "show ready" all day, EVERY day. Many Tulsa home Sellers will be able to run home prior to a showing to crate their 4-legged family member. Some will keep their pup in the back yard or garage during showings. If a home (4 comments)
My year and special moments in Tulsa real estate 2011 - 01/27/12 10:37 AM
My year (and special moments) in Tulsa real estate 2011 My encounter with Shelley Cadamy should have prepared me for my memorable year in real estate. Shelley was relocating from OKC to Tulsa with three children, was starting a new job and planning a wedding - obviously she multi-tasks well. Shelley wanted to see one particular Tulsa home for sale, but I had no idea she was hell-bent to drive to Tulsa to see it in the snow - a LOT of snow!! In addition to viewing her beautiful home, we met her lovely neighbors who helped dig her car (0 comments)
You've negotiated the contract on your home purchase - what's next? - 01/23/12 11:11 AM
You have finally found the home you wish to purchase and negotiated the sales contract. What's next? First we get a copy of the executable contract to your Lender and Title Company. You'll begin gathering Lender requirements which should include two years' tax returns, two months' recent paycheck stubs and bank statements. Other items may be required depending on your type of financing and income sources. For example, if child support is going to be considered part of your income, you'll need documentation showing consistent payment of that. The Lender will also order an appraisal on the property. The Title Company (0 comments)
Dilly Deli Restaurant in Blue Dome District, downtown Tulsa - 01/20/12 10:32 AM
Dilly Deli Restaurant in Blue Dome District, downtown Tulsa One recent Saturday morning, Deme and I decided to go for brunch, and we wound up at Dilly Deli in the Bluedome District in downtown Tulsa. I LOVE this restaurant on so many levels! I had eaten lunch there previously with girlfriend Sharon, But Deme had not been there before. The restaurant is as fun as its logo implies. It's a locally-owned business. That alone makes the food taste better and makes me want to spend my money there. The bread: Dilly Deli's rye and Tuscan breads come from the (0 comments)
Repairs in the Oklahoma Real Estate Contract - 01/19/12 05:36 PM
Repairs in the Oklahoma Real Estate Contract Confusing to both home Buyers and Sellers are how repairs are handled in the Oklahoma Real Estate contract. Repairs are handled differently from state to state, so if you're not purchasing or selling real estate in Oklahoma, this may not apply to you at all. When a Buyer makes an offer on a Tulsa home for sale, we literally "guestimate" how much we think we'll spend in repairs. So, we negotiate a figure for repairs which is a "repair cap" that the home Seller agrees to. We do not conduct inspections until all terms (4 comments)
Another Reason to Keep Tulsa, OK on Your Mind - 01/18/12 10:40 PM
Tom and Bev give a valuable update on renovations in downtown Tulsa. It's exciting to watch the revitalization in progress - I find myself visiting downtown Tulsa more and more often, and it's convenient because I live south of downtown. Definitely another reason to consider relocating to Tulsa Oklahoma! Via Tom and Bev Herring (Coldwell Banker - Rader Group): If you’re looking for a city with easy navigation, Tulsa, OK should be on your mind. Between Tulsa’s Downtown Coordinating Council and the Vision 2025 initiative, there are new city goals to convert all the one-way streets into two-way streets. As it is now, (0 comments)

Adding Character to a Vacant Home is So Important - 01/12/12 03:37 PM
This Colorado Realtor explains well why staging vacant homes is so important. Also, photos seen on the internet of vacant homes are dull and uninviting. If you see furniture in a room, not only does it encourage emotion, it gives you a sense of flow and size. I would not (and did not) sell my personal home without the full services of a professional home stager!! Via Belinda Spillman Colorado Real Estate Professional (Cornerstone Homes/Metro Brokers Marina Square): Adding Character to a Vacant Home is So Important
I recently went on a couple of listing appointments, with my business partner Will (1 comments)
Are winter months a good time to market your Tulsa home for sale? - 01/12/12 10:43 AM
Today yet another Tulsa home seller asked me if she should wait until after the winter months to put her home on the market. My answer is resoundingly "no!" Many Tulsa home sellers will take their homes OFF the market during the holidays and wait until spring to re-list them. Many Tulsa home sellers spend the winter months preparing their home for sale and think that the best time to put their home on the market is during the spring months. So, during the winter months, our inventory of Tulsa homes for sale is at its lowest, while buyers are (4 comments)

Please do call me! Via Peggy Chirico, REALTOR® 860-748-8900 Hartford & Tolland County Real Estate (Prudential CT Realty): When I am speaking for the first time with potential buyers, one of the most misunderstood aspects of buying a home concerns buyer representation. Although we have had buyer representation in Connecticut since 1996, many people still do not understand that, as buyers, they have the right to have (5 comments)
