haven express: Here Is How I Decided On My List Price - 03/19/17 06:43 AM
I added the following numbers:
What I paid for the property in the mid 2000s
What I have spent in property maintenance and improvements since that time
What I need to net from the sale of the property
And a bonus because my house is the best house in the neighborhood.
 
Hmmm...said a voice... That list price is significantly above the list price at which several other similar properties expired in the past few months.
 
That's OK - as I said it's the best house in the neighborhood.
And I'm sure it will appraise.
 
Hmmm...said a voice...and what will you do if it doesn't appraise for that price?
 
 
 
 
 
CRICKETS!!

haven express: "Leave It To The Professional"... - 03/19/17 06:28 AM
"Leave It To The Professional"...
 
That's what a Seller told me that they had been told by another agent when they questioned the discrepancy between what the agent had said they would do and what the agent had actually done, or rather had not done...
 
Anyone else see a problem with that posture?
 
Years before we exited corporate america in favor of residential real estate, we practiced and preached:
 
 
Say what you are going to do
 
Do what you said you would do
 
When you said you would do it
 
 
 
It's just that simple...
 
So the Seller decided it was time to "Leave It To The Professional" and fired the … (66 comments)

haven express: Escalation - Easy as 1, 2, 3 - 03/15/17 06:57 AM
One of our listings is a Short Sale.
 
 
 
I know, I know, it's hard to believe that Short Sales still exist - but they do.
 
In this case, two lienholders.
 
This is the second time down the pike.
 
 
We received the approval letter from the second lienholder a couple of weeks ago.
 
The first time around, the first lienholder took far too long and "mishandled the file" (their words not mine).
 
The Buyer's circumstances changed and at the point we had the approvals from both lienholders, they were unable to continue.
 
C'est la vie. (Tha's French - I think!)
 
Back on the market, knowing the magic number the lender … (6 comments)

This is our entry for March 2017 challenge, Tell me the most unique or special place you have lived sponsored by Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, Broker, Tacoma Washington!
 
This was initially a difficult choice.  I have been fortunate to have lived in a variety of locations around the world - some for a longer period than others.
 
There was a year I spent at Shawnigan Lake on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, followed by a couple of summers at Dawson's Landing - accessible by boat or seaplane only.
 
After taking a tour through history, there was one, and only one "most special" place I have lived.
 
 
 
London, England.
