matt borushko team: Buying a Home From a Builder - Tips and Advice - 07/12/10 02:37 PM
This is an old blog that I am reposting with some updates. With the decline in the housing markets, I felt it prudent to add to the list of items to watch for... Building a home can be a great experience...or a nightmare. As a local real estate agent I often see the long term effects of decisions made by people choosing to build a home. My past also includes 10 years as a new home sales consultant with both local and national builders. With this experience many of my clients build new homes with great success. With that in mind (5 comments)
matt borushko team: The Questions You Should Be Asking Your Agent - 06/30/10 09:54 PM
We hear every day that you get what you pay for. Consumers apply this logic to many facets of their lives. If you need legal counsel or need to see a doctor, you are going to select based on their expertise, not on their hourly rate. We hire them because they can help us. We understand that the experts may charge more but in the long run will cost us less. We apply this logic to most things. So why don't we apply that same knowledge when selecting a realtor? Too often one of the first questions a seller asks is "What do (4 comments)
matt borushko team: As Fiduciaries, Watch What You Share With Other Agents - 03/29/10 09:19 AM
As Realtors@ we are bound to a certain standard of ethics. We have fiduciary responsibility to our clients at all times. As a rule I would say our industry does a decent job of representing our clients. The challenge is that we often give away information that seems innocent but in reality can negatively impact a negotiation for your clients. I point this out only because we have an upcoming deadline that we need to be very aware of. The expiration of the first time buyer tax credit seems to be a very real deadline with no talk of extension. This (0 comments)
matt borushko team: Simple Questions, Simple Answers, and Home Values - 03/18/10 11:33 AM
I have been in various aspects of real estate a long time. I represented builders for 11 years, was a mortgage broker for 4 years, and have been a Realtor@ for 6 years now. I've learned a lot in my time and yet everyday I get asked questions that cause me to step back and think. Not that the questions in and of themselves are difficult. My challenge comes in trying to keep simple answers simple. A perfect example made itself clear to me the other day. I had a referral from an agent in Florida. The person they referred to me wanted (2 comments)

matt borushko team: Selling Tips in a Down Market - 03/15/10 09:24 AM
Recently Gary Keller of Keller Williams Realty was on Good Morning America. Here are some excerpts from the show. Great advice for sellers! New home sales are at an all-time low, and the market isn't expected to recover anytime soon. With the housing market so slow, homeowners who have to sell -- perhaps to move for a job or because of a looming foreclosure -- may not see much interest in their property. If there is interest, buyers may offer considerably less than expected. It's a tough situation, and it places people under enormous pressure, but it's not impossible. "Good Morning (4 comments)
