Redding CA ~ Listing and Selling Your Home For the Right Price! - 04/29/08 07:29 AM
Redding Real Estate has been in a declining market since the first part of 2006. 2007 saw foreclosures and short sales continue to affect the trending market value for our area. Homeowners that were not able to grasp the concepts of a declining market, continued to price their homes higher than current market value and suffered the "chasing the market down" syndrome with disastrous results. Many of these homeowners now face foreclosure. It is critical that you work with a responsible Realtor to help you price your home correctly. It is your Realtor's responsibility to help you and to with complete (4 comments)

I have been checking out the videos that are posted to the entry page for ActiveRain and in the last couple of days there was the funniest video.....David and I both about died laughing.

The video Always Preview Your Listings, is so clever and for me confirmed the power of video and how it will be affecting the real estate industry. I don't think that I would ever do a video for the consumer that is so funny, but I might do one for the AR community. David and (10 comments)

Redding CA ~ Homes for Sale ~ Knowing Market Value Works for Sellers and Buyers! - 04/21/08 12:52 PM
It becomes more significant on a daily basis, the gap between sellers and buyers. We still see homes priced too high. These homes spiral down in price just behind the declining market. When as a seller, you choose a price over market value, you set in place the criteria for loosing time, money and opportunity. Placing your home on the market for the correct price is one of several key elements in getting your home sold. Equally important are the presentation, location and selling features of your home. Working with a professional Realtor or Real Estate Agent that has a strong (0 comments)
Open Houses ~ Do They Work ~ Are You Listening? - 04/14/08 09:37 AM
I always hear agents discuss Open Houses. Most seem to think they are a waste of time. Over the last year, I have gotten some good business from my Opens. I have changed how I do them over the years. I like so many other agents use to do them to get business from neighbors and from potential buyers. I would bring print outs from the MLS of similar properties....so that if our house did not fit their needs, we could talk about what else was on the market. I would put out promotional materials about selling houses and my services. (22 comments)
Open House ~ Story of Cloe and Sky ~ Friendship of a Horse and a Sheep! - 04/14/08 07:43 AM
I spent the day with my client at an Open House yesterday and we had 4 hours of conversation that was very enjoyable. The Open just flew by. If we have lots of traffic...I always enjoy meeting people and talking to them. If the day is slow, however...I am often times bored....I take busy work...but being busy all week...I always seem to want to avoid the busy work and just enjoy being bored. Well I wanted to share this cute story about my client's baby horse names Sky (I know...colt). We sold her parents property next door about a year ago (2 comments)

Three Offers with Multiple Counter Offers on All! - 04/07/08 07:13 AM
Did I write that correctly. Interesting note from Redding, Shasta County, CA. I talked with an agent on Friday about the possibility of her putting an offer in on one of our short sale properties. She commented that she would wait until Monday to see if they would. They had three offers in on other houses and there were multiple offers on all three houses. She wanted to wait and see if they were successful on any of the three. Now qualify this with that these are entry-level homes in the 200,000-225,000 range...but none the less...that kind of blew me away. I (6 comments)

Field Theory ~ Law of Attraction - 04/05/08 05:55 AM
The Secret and the Law of Attraction and now many books on the subject have brought about the acceptance that what we think is what creates our own reality. We write about this in several groups here in ActiveRain. I on occasion have written about Field Theory and how it works. Once some new discovery or breakthrough technology is achieved, it then becomes easier to replicate. You will often times in scientific studies see that the breakthrough will occur and almost simultaneously it will also occur from separate projects spontaneously. When we know on some level that what we think becomes (11 comments)

Each and every person that owns a puppy/dog (hereafter referred to as puppy) has a unique and special puppy. Every since we got our GiGi as a puppy we have sheltered her and protected her. Her predecessor and namesake was a rescue golden retriever and had lots of emotional problems. She had been abused and we spent 8 years with her. They were wonderful years filled with love and care. Heavy on the care part. She was very worried about us leaving her and so she wanted to be with us or go with us everywhere. We loved her so and (17 comments)
