Getting Price Reductions...Using Stats....Programs to use..Altos or? - 01/30/09 01:32 PM
Getting price reductions! What stats to use? How do you lead a client to the right decision? One of the most important attributes of a leader is being able to predict. Numbers tell a story. When you can look at numbers and give a story, people understand on their own what they need to do without you telling them. Thats what leaders do..they influence others..not command others. Managing is commanding. Leading is influencing. Everyone is always asking for a Crystal Ball! Leaders can share insight on what is happening. Heres my Crystal Ball. This is what I prefer all my clients to see (2 comments)

Utah rated #1 for population growth..Nevada moved to 8th. - 01/10/09 02:09 PM
Utah was rated by Forbes to be #1 for population growth! Utah grew by 68,000 people but has grown at 2.5% year over year. There were over 40,000 new babies in the state. Utah's own growth accounts for the majority of the growth but we do have in migration. What it means to Utah Real Estate What is amazing....Utah has grown while sales of real estate declined to the lowest levels in 13 years. What does this mean? It means a majority of our population was scared to buy a home and are planning on it soon. Our sales can only do (0 comments)

Tricks to Refinancing your home...even if you dont qualify! Many people are taking advantage of refinancing! I mean this is history right now with lowest rates in decades!

Home not selling? Rent it out and move maybe? THINK AGAIN! - 01/01/09 04:44 PM
Home not selling? You are thinking of renting it out and moving? Think Again! The way loans used to work don't work that way. That's what I did back in 2001 or so when the market in Utah was depreciating. I just moved out of my home, leased it out and bought a new one. FannieMae changed their rules though.
