Red Flags – Six sure signs – Your buyer Client is foolish.
1) Anger without cause –
2) Speech without profit-
3) Change without progress-
4) Inquiry without purpose-
5) Putting trust in a stranger-
6) Mistaking foe for friend-
How many times have you had a buyer client – pull any of these on you?
1) Buyer says “I don’t think you understand what my goal is in this purchase” to which you replied “ I’m showing you the best properties that you are qualified to buy (12 comments)

Snow photo near the end of November, last night as many were thinking about getting an early jump on the holiday shopping (affectionately known as Black Friday) We were getting a little white Friday.
As many of you know "Black Friday" was a term coined to mean the day retailers were in the Black (no longer in the red) for the year. Black Friday is important for sales of products leading up to the December "giving" holidays. It is only slightly different in the Ski Resort business...When (11 comments)

steve loynd: A Limited number of slope side custom home sites available at Loon Mountain, in Lincoln NH. - 05/16/09 11:56 AM
Three years ago distant prior-investors (owners at other Centex Resorts) were giving the opportunity to purchase the premiere locations at Loon's South Peak Resort. Past buys from the Centex development company proved to be profitable (upon re-sale), so many purchased sight un-seen. Fast Forward three years: we are in a different economy and many land owners here will never build, due to the distance from which their primary residence is located. These sellers are well healed , and savvy about their over all investment portfolio: In a recent conversation with one of my seller's, this land owner said "I am prepared (0 comments)

I have this seller client who used to own car dealerships. We were chatting about offers, and when it was time to sent away a prospect who couldn't see the value or get their head around the cost of a product. He told me a tale of a one time client (car buyer) we'll call him Frank. So Frank comes in looking for a new car, knows what he wants, knows what other dealers charge and knows what options are required and which are negotiable. Like all great buyers Frank prides himself at working the deal, he beats up the (13 comments)
