ann arbor: Chicks in Ann Arbor - 03/17/08 04:43 PM
It has often been commented that Ann Arbor is 24 square miles surrounded by reality. Oft times, that statement has been used to point out some disconnect between the city and its neighboring communities. Well, in a startling twist, the City of Ann Arbor is considering a proposal to allow city residents keep chickens! Chickens! Specifically hens, because no one likes to be woken at the crack of dawn by a crowing rooster. The Team366 Real Estate Rooster is simply not amused!Thank goodness the proposal doesn’t also include a car in every garage. That would be almost to spiffy! "A chicken (3 comments)
ann arbor: Ann Arbor Area Real Estate Statistics | February 2008 - 03/14/08 01:58 PM
From the Big House Data Executive Summary: February 2008 is in the books and the listing pace is down by over a full quarter of the market. That means that there is currently a quarter less new inventory for purchasers to choose from! Depending on your view of the current market, this is either good or, at worst, neutral news for the real estate market as a whole. Of course, from a seller’s perspective, this is decent news. There is less competition among homes currently for sale. However, the flip side is that sales prices are not rising, on average. (1 comments)

ann arbor: Real Estate Marketing | Traditional, Innovative or Bleeding Edge? - 03/09/08 02:55 PM
The marketing of real estate has always been a process that changes. In fact, the one constant about real estate marketing, is that it changes rapidly! AcceptableSeller's have come to expect a level of service already. That level of service may vary from region to region, but I suspect that the norm looks something like: ads in the local paper, ads in the local Homes magazine, postcards to the neighbors, open houses, maybe some actual door knocking. A good base from which to begin an all encompassing marketing effort. GoodUsed to be a time when an agent could Wow! their clients with (10 comments)
ann arbor: When Blood is Running in the Streets....BUY! - 03/03/08 04:25 PM
As John D. Rockefeller famously said, "The way to make money is to buy when blood is running in the streets." - from the Time article Whoa! There is a great article in the February 25th, issue of Time Magazine. The article, Ignore the Headlines, is a great article on why timing the bottom of the real estate market is not only tricky, but could negate any potential gains. For folks in the enviable position of being able to purchase a home without selling a residence, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for buyers. Housing inventories are high, interest rates are low, (1 comments)

ann arbor: Open House/Real Estate Chat Live Blog Event - 09/17/07 09:02 AM
This past Sunday, I held a Real Estate Chat on the EastSide of Ann Arbor at a beautiful, sun-filled home. To add a little excitement to the day, I LiveBlogged the event. With ten groups of attendees, it was a little hairy to keep up with welcoming folks, answering their questions and posting a continuous blog, but it was great! What was even more fun was that a few folks let me take their photo for the blog! Check out the post here.

ann arbor: A "LiveBlogging" Event - The Ann Arbor Real Estate Chat: Eastside Edition - 08/28/07 10:42 AM
So, I tried something a little different this past Sunday. In addition to doing the usual real estate chat and turning the open house into an event, I tried to "liveblog" the whole thing. Hectic is about the right word if you are thinking of trying to pull this off, but it was fun. Maybe I will even be able to add real estate chat visitor's photos in the future. For now, I will content myself on being able to post a nearly moment by moment account of what happened at this weekend's real estate chat. Check out the post on "the other" (0 comments)

ann arbor: Subprime Mortgage Market Fallout and "Six-inch hooker heels." What? - 06/27/07 05:00 PM
Anyone else see the quote of the day from Inman News? "Six-inch hooker heels" is how Bill Gross of PIMCO, the world's largest bond fund describes the attractiveness of mortgage-backed securities (MBS) and collateralized debt obligations (CDOs) to the ratings agencies. Actually, the whole article is pretty good. Click here for some of my own views on the subprime market and how it will impact our housing market. (3 comments)

ann arbor: May 2007 Housing Stats - 06/14/07 04:05 PM
What appears to be a regular feature on this blog, is the monthly rolling out of Big House Data's housing stats. Well, let June be no exception! From the BHD Executive Summary: The mantra in this market is: price moves homes. Location, price and condition are the traditional three keys to selling real estate. Sellers have ultimate control over two of the three. When condition and price converge in the mind of the buyer, the property sells. And the stats show that compared to last year's market, 84% of the buyers are still there. [emphasis added by editor] 84%? That means that the number (1 comments)
