I have had conversations recently with homeowners who are sprucing up their homes for sale. They are spending real money on improvements to help their homes sell faster and for more money. They know that there will be less than a 100% return on this investment, see  The probl...
As agents, we instinctively know many times when a house is good, and when it is not. Yes, beauty is often in the eye of the beholder, but when the inspector gets ahold of the home this vision can be blurred.I spoke with an agent in my office the other day about clients of hers that were preparin...
Just to be up front, I really have no issue with the people who set values on homes. They work hard and really are not paid much per appraisal. Having said that, I am continually perplexed about how they work. I just hired an appraiser to double check a listing I have. I know I am a bit high, and...

We initialed the change and sent the amendment back to the buyers agent to get his clients to initial the change. They never ...
  I often get asked this time of year when the best time to list in the Spring is. The chart above gives good answers to that question. You can plainly see that new listings for the Woodstock zip code peak in April after rising every month from January. My suggestion is to always get the home lis...
I love hearing the old saw about anytime being a great time to sell. I think what this old saying is trying to tell us is that agents would like a paycheck anytime. Well, if you truly have the best interests of your client in mind, it may not always be the best time to sell.I have had several rec...
I like to look at the above graphic. It looks like a race car dashboard to me. And what it says is interesting.
