Twinsburg Real Estate Market is realistic, solid, balanced - historic sales data proves it - 01/27/09 07:25 PM
Real Estate Sales statistics is one of the most powerful tools good Real Estate agents use. Thanks to strict rules and members' being mostly responsible, we have a real solid data in our local MLS data base. About a year ago I published the historic sales statistics for few Greater Cleveland suburbs: Twinsburg, Mayfield Heights and Solon. As we have sales data for the whole year of 2008 now, it's interesting to see how these great cities were doing. Let's start from Twinsburg Real Estate. Was 2008 a real bad year for this young, dynamic, growing city?
Yes, number of units sold sales dropped (4 comments)
Realtors(R) don't charge the home buyers in America, do they? Who pay commission to buyer's agent? Consumers Guide to Agency Relationship: Part 2 - 01/20/09 07:20 PM
People love free stuff. Free is a magic word. Whoever gives something away - for FREE! - feels like a God, like generous, kind, almighty God who makes people happy and smiling. What a gracious life! You may know this feeling if you are Real Estate agent and work for home buyers in Cleveland or in other parts of America. Why? Because here in America home sellers pay Real Estate commission. Buyer's representation is apparently FREE! Is it really free or it's not? That's a good question to discuss with your potential clients when you ask them to sign the Consumers Guide to Agency Relationship, which is required (3 comments)
Are all foreclosure "DEALS" equally great? The mistery of pricing and call for due diligence. - 01/17/09 07:07 PM
With such a big inventory of bank owned homes in Cleveland you can expect a reasonable pricing. When I say "Reasonable", I mean priced differently or similarly FOR REASON, not just based on square footage or comparable sales in the neighborhood. First of all, do they compare apples to apples when price these properties? Let me tell you the story. Thanks to blogging at Active Rain I've got this wonderful client from overseas who hired me to assist him in distant buying of few investment properties in Shaker Heights, University Heights and Cleveland Heights. I am previewing all these houses which look like great DEALS to me (3 comments)
Why I feel so relaxed when lead comes from Active Rain - 01/14/09 07:09 PM
Sometimes I have that strange and totally wrong feeling that I do not earn money which I get helping people to buy or sell Real Estate in Greater Cleveland. Why? Because I love doing Real Estate!

Pending Death and Future Living. Transparency, Technology, Social Media, Business Strategy, With Some Economics Sprinkled On Top - 01/13/09 08:16 PM
That's a very serious conversation about the trends, possible outcomes and inevitable changes in our Real Estate industry. I am very pleased that Active Rain authors allow to re-blog their writings. Please read and share your thoughts about the Jeff Corbett's brilliant essay. Via Jeff Corbett (ActiveRain): So, I've been running my mouth about this word called ::Transparency:: for a few years now. When you wax philosophic on a topic for so long, watching it manifest in the main stream elicits redemptive emotions. What is Transparency? The word has a far reaching and fascinating taxonomy depending on what the corresponding topic is. Generally, (0 comments)
Who Says The Market is Slow? Winter Storm in Cleveland Does not Stop Serious Buyers From Touring The Houses - 01/10/09 04:15 PM
I am so glad that there are still so many people who buy the houses in Cleveland because they need a spacious place in safe neighborhoods for their family, good school systems for their kids, nice back yard for the garden, or finished basement for the home theater. These are the real reasons to buy. These are the greatest moving forces to work hard, keep credit history in a good shape, save money for down payment and for those comfortable couches to put in front of fireplacea in a family room. These are the excellent motivators to hire a reliable Realtor(R) to make this purchase an exciting, (1 comments)
Perfect snow in Cleveland! - 01/09/09 07:11 PM
Few people called me this afternoon and warned about the winter storm coming to Cleveland tonight. It doesn't look like a storm for me as I am enjoying a warm, calm, nice Friday night with my family. Tomorrow is planned to be a very busy day for me and my clients: two showing tours with my buyers and one showing on my listing to out of town buyer. Hope, Cleveland winter will not scare our relocating buyers! So far it's simply beautiful.

How to use the Consumers Guide to Agency Relationship to build a stronger, healthy relationship between the client and the agent. Part One: Confidentiality - 01/07/09 06:15 PM
I am very glad that Barb Szabo started the conversation about the Consumers guide to agency relationship. When Ohio adopted this rule many agents in Ohio were releived, as previously we were obligated to sign the Agency disclosure form with our potential clients. Agency Disclosure contains more strong language about representation which many clients considered as obligation to be represented by this particular agent. My point is that obligation to review the Consumers guide to agency with the potential client may be a big opportunity for Real Estate agents to present our services, advantages and professional principles, and eventually build a strong, healthy, professional agent-client relationship with (8 comments)
