National Open House! - 09/28/07 08:56 AM
Several agents (myself included) nationally are planning a "National Open House" on November 4th. I will post more details as they come available...you can click the icon below to check out the official website, which will probably be updated more often than I will actually post. I am not sure which of my listings will be featured during the National Open House. Ideally all of my current active listings will be sold by then!! Stay tuned! http://www.national-open-house.com/ (2 comments)
For those of you who like late night TV Infomercials... - 09/21/07 07:15 AM
For those of you who ever watch the late night TV Infomercials that advertise how to get rich quick by purchasing homes for no money down blah blah blah - this website is a good read! It rates the different "Real Estate Entreprenuers" and exposes the phonies for what they really are.FYI I have said it before and I will say it again... many of the secret techniques the infomercials tout are fraudulent.

Good Old Benny Boy!! - 09/21/07 07:12 AM
Ben Bernanke just surprised many by dropping both the Fed Funds and the Discount Rate by .5%. It's too soon to tell how this may impact mortgage interest rate.

The Fed Funds rate refers to what (0 comments)

Ask Erin: What should I offer? - 09/07/07 12:49 AM
I am constantly asked what a good first offer on a property should be. Unfortunately, there is no good blanket answer to this question, because the strategy regarding each individual property should differ depending on the property in question itself, where it is located, the recent comparable sales data, it's asking price, the seller's circumstances, what entity you are actually negotiating with, etc. I do not recommend throwing out lots of lowball offers just to see what sticks...doing so is no better than tossing darts at a dartboard with your eyes closed. I suggest carefully evaluating each situation individually with your agent. I (0 comments)
