There were a lot of expired listings this weekend, but those stats are a tad bit deceiving. About half of them were from a group of lots in one neighborhood being sold by one individual. We still have an abundance of active listings and market pressures are keeping prices low.

I've spent the last two days driving around in my truck getting driveways cleared of all the snow we just got pounded with. You would think that it would go beyond saying that in order to sell a house, people need to have access to it. I don't know how many times I've gone to show a house in the past to a prospective home buyer and upon arriving at a home found it almost impossible to get into it because of all the snow. I know not everyone is physically capable of shoveling snow, but there are plenty (0 comments)
I am often asked, "What's the difference between a manufactured home and a modular one?" Today I'm going to try and point out some of the differences.What are Modular Homes?A modular home is a home that is built in sections at a factory and conform to all state, local or regional building codes at their point of destination. Each section is transported to the home site where they are then connected together by local contractors. Each home is has inspections along the way to make sure that the home is meeting the requirements and the work is being finished (0 comments)

homes: When Should I Start Looking For A Home? - 01/25/09 02:43 PM
I'm often asked: "When should we start looking for a home?" That's a question that is easily answered. Right now! However, how you start looking for a home is a different answer. The answer is dependent upon your particular situation. For instance, if you currently have a home that you would need to sell prior to buying a new home then your time would most likely be best spent searching for homes that catch your interest on the web through a home search tool like the one I provide on my website. You can begin to get an ideal of the (0 comments)

homes: Defiance Interest Rates Drop to 5.0%! - 12/13/08 03:43 PM
Yep, you read that right! I called Denise Davenport at The State Bank here in Defiance Ohio and confirmed it. The rates for a 30 year fixed mortgage for a person with A credit was being promoted at 5.0%. I then followed up the call with a call to Ryan Frederick at Sherwood State Bank, Defiance Branch and he gave me the same number. That's great news for the real estate market. I know that it will create a bunch of refinances, but if buyers have been on the fence waiting for whatever reason to purchase a home. Now might be (0 comments)

homes: CAUGHT WITHOUT A HOME WARRANTY! - 03/18/08 05:45 PM
As a real estate agent, I discuss with all my clients the benefits of getting a home warranty for the home they are either purchasing or selling. I do so because of the security that it gives the clients if anything were to go wrong either while they are selling or in their new home. Well, I should have listened to myself when listing my own home. As I mentioned in my last post, I listed my personal residence yesterday. Wouldn't you know it, 4 hours later, my washing machine DIED! I said to myself, everything is fine with my house, I've fixed it (7 comments)
