Dollar Menu - 04/18/08 01:41 PM
As we have all heard or read, the dollar has not been doing so well as of late. But wait, there are signs of things turning around for the dollar. On Friday, the dollar bounced back against the Euro after hitting a record low against it on Thursday. The dollar has also bounced back against the Yen. So how do we know for sure that things will turn around? We won't until they do obviously. It is the same thing as people saying they are waiting for the bottom of the market to buy. You never know it is the (0 comments)
Here We Go Again - 04/05/08 09:16 PM
I am wondering if the rest of you get tired of reading, or hearing, all of the negativity in the news? Sure, the economy could be better, but it's not like we need to go jump off of a bridge either. All I seem to hear is how bad the housing market is and how home prices are dropping like a rock. I find that funny because people are still calling my office, still stopping by and the agents I work with are selling lots of homes. But we never hear that do we? No. It is always the negative (0 comments)
Thinking Outside The Box - 04/04/08 12:16 AM
What is the number one thing needed to get your home sold? Money. It is that simple. Now I am sure that you already knew this but it is worth pointing out for a few reasons. How many home flyers and advertisements do you see that tell you all about the home. Square footage, price, how many bedrooms, bathroom and all the goodies. However, most of them fail to mention the most important thing, money. They mention the price of the home but no options on how to get a loan for it. Perhaps some mention a payment and an (0 comments)
Light at the end of the tunnel or just another dull lantern? - 04/02/08 09:49 PM
As I do daily, I came across an article on the housing market. It went on to describe what some lawmakers are offering as part of the solution to the problem. I am sure that all of you have your own point of view and it may be different from that of a Realtor. I don't think it matters what your point of view is but rather that we all do what we can to help not make the problem worse. Rather than try and explain the whole article to you, I have provided a link for you to read (0 comments)
Did You Know? - 04/01/08 04:35 PM
I recently read some information on the pricing of homes and the effect that it has on the market conditions. Think about this for a second. Let's say you want to sell your home and you think it is worth $300,000. I come to you with all of the data and show you why your home is only worth $289,000. For whatever reason you don't believe me and end up listing your house for $300,000 with another company. So what have you just done? You and the Realtor you have chosen to work with have just put an overpriced home (0 comments)
