The Big FSBO Lie - 01/31/09 10:56 PM
I like to give my readers thought provoking insights on the market. Here's one from my friend Rodger. The title is harsh.. but needs to be communicated. Via Roger Johnson, Realtor - Hickory NC Real Estate (CENTURY 21 American Homes): People give several reasons for trying to do a For Sale By Owner (FSBO) on their property. The reasons are really as varied as the people doing it. In most cases, however, all those "reasons" boil down to one thing, the commission to an agent. It's all over the Internet as well. Tons of posts on how to Sell it Yourself and SAVE (0 comments)
Sellers, Please, Please Read.. this applies to all local markets Via Bill Gassett Metrowest Massachusetts Real Estate (RE/MAX Executive Realty): As a Realtor you are able to get on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) everyday and see countless homes that have "expired". The number one reason why any home expires and does not sell is because of an improper price. Unfortunately, this is the hardest obstacle in Real Estate to overcome. In today's challenging Real Estate (2 comments)
No More Banks or Mortgage Bankers Needed? - 01/31/09 10:37 PM
I loved this post. It probably won't happen,but makes interesting reading! Via Fred Glick B.S., ePro® REALTOR®/Mortgage Brkr (U S Spaces, Inc & U S Loans Mortgage LLC): If you caught my CNBC segment the other day, I briefly mentioned the idea of eliminating a few steps in the process of getting a loan. Since the federal government now controls most of the mortgage underwriting standards in the US anyway, let's try something new and less expensive for the consumer! 1. Combine Fannie, Freddie, FHA and VA into one agency. Make a set of underwriting guidelines that everyone can follow and be consistent. 2. Have the (0 comments)

Taunton -oversized turn of the century colonial bank owned home for $119,000 - 01/07/09 09:38 AM
The house is bank owned and needs some work, lots of exterior work. In a good location in Taunton. House has old world features and character. Needs lots of love, but priced right. This is not my listing. The listing agent knows I sell many bank owned properties in the area and has asked me to sell it. I have been through this house myself several times. A diamond in the rough! If you would like to know more about this or any other home for sale in the area, Please call Lori Lincoln, Keller Williams Realty your bank owned buyers (0 comments)
A Day in the life of showing junky bank owned properties in Taunton - 01/03/09 10:33 PM
I get ready to show these homes dressed in jeans and my worst pair of boots. Its about 30 degrees Farenheit, but need to dress warm because these houses are cold with a capital C. So on go my jeans, my "play" coat, warm socks, my old boots.. hat, flashlight.. oh no.. ran out of batteries! No flashlight. So I call my investor clients to see if they can bring their own. I will spare you some of the details,and cannot post pictures because I don't have permission from the lsiting agents, but this is a basic day of showing junky foreclosed (40 comments)

Taunton Real Estate- 2009 is Divine! - 01/02/09 08:45 PM
I am so excited about the new year. Looking forward to a great 2009. In real estate, nobody can predict the future. I will give you some facts that I have noticed over the last 2 weeks. Buyer/Investors are buying up the foreclosure inventory. Today, our office received over 25 buyer calls for showings in the first 3 hours of the day. I didn't find out what the total calls were for the day.. Normal is 5-10 a day. Of course the influx could be due to the holidays... but still a nice positive way to start the new year.
