storm lake: What I would love to have in a website - check out the AR Contest - 05/13/13 11:23 AM
I have had several websites over the last 8 years, homes.com, point 2, and one I built myself on Homestead. All are expensive, take a lot of time and for the most part other than the one I built myself they all look cookie cutter. I was very concerned about the "Ownership of my material" on Homes.com, and copyright problems. Having said that, I would love to have a website that is internet and mobile friendly, easy to update, one that works like my Ipad with apps - so much easier to navigate than the Microsoft based systems, I would like (1 comments)
storm lake: Houston We Have A Problem - Consensual Dual Agency in Iowa - 04/11/13 08:11 AM
Weaver Realtors Broker here, struggling to educate the public on the importance of representation in a real estate transaction. Here in Iowa, Consensual Dual Agency is legal, alive and thriving. However, it is doing so at the expense of fairly and honestly representing clients. In a consensual dual agency transaction where one agent represents both the buyer and the seller, who exactly is the agent representing? The agent cannot give either side preference, so the agent cannot make any recommendations as to how to counter, what to offer (doing a cma for Buyer?), how to negotiate, ..... Who do you best represent if (5 comments)

How do you practice appointed agency, how do you explain to a client the advantages of this agency over consensual dual agency. As the broker how do you work with your agents within this type of agency, for example how do you determine who the appointed agent is for each side of the transaction? I would like to (1 comments)

storm lake: Storm Lake Iowa - Buyers Are Everywhere - Where are the Sellers? - 02/23/13 11:22 AM
North west Iowa, Storm Lake IA to be exact, pretty typical for this time of year we just got about 6 inches of snow. What isn't typical is the number of buyers we are seeing out looking at every new home that comes on the market. Our inventory of homes to sell is down and has been down the last 3 years. The number of buyers has also been down, but something has changed. What is the best way to get the word out to the sellers who are holding off until warmer weather? Those sellers who wait will have stiff (0 comments)

storm lake: Storm Lake IA - Rental Properties at a Premium - 03/09/12 11:41 AM
If you live in Storm Lake, IA and you don't own your home you probably know the kind of shortage we have in rental properties. Our office Weaver Realtors receives between 20 and 25 calls, emails and texts a day from people in need of a rental property. The demand has pushed up the price on rentals and it is very difficult ot get anything for less that $500 a month, and most are between $550 and $650. What kind of a home could you pay if you paid $550 a month for rent? Well with interest rates below 4.5% and a 30 (0 comments)

storm lake: Storm Lake Iowa Addresses the Local Extreme Housing Need - 01/04/12 01:10 PM
We have several local developers in Storm Lake and Newell continuing to work on new home developments and subdivisions, we have a number of investors working on flips and rentals, and we have a number of big developers vieying for the opportunity to put up some mega properties to help ease the local rental housing needs. Unfortunately, it looks like all the big developers are planning to put up low income housing (we need good, clean, rental housing across the board) but with the need at the several hundred units level and going up, every new rental clean good rental is a welcome (0 comments)
storm lake: Storm Lake IA Homes For Sale - Market and Weather Holding - 01/04/12 11:58 AM
It is January in NW Iowa, Storm Lake to be exact. So far this year we have had 2 snow falls, both slight compared to our usual massive accumulation.

We are planning to bring on fulltime office staff and we have have a few more (0 comments)

No pun intended! Our brokerage has had a good year with an increase in sales by 11% over 2010.

Just posting a notice that my real estate office was going to be closed for the holiday and I absent mindedly hit replace when I misspelled the word inconvenience. It replaced it all right, but not with what I thought it would say. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=2302966624728&set=a.2007051587037.2090053.1566100169&type=1&ref=nf

Weaver Realtors and Blu Skyz Properties LLC are driving forces behind the recent growth and development of Newell, Iowa - a small town located east of Storm Lake, IA. This town of less than 1000 people is prime for both commercial and residential development.

Newell has a lot of available properties that be purchased at low prices, BSP LLC recently purchased a large commercial building on the main street for $25,000. This building's street level is finished and includes, 2 handicap accessible bathrooms, (0 comments)
