Going Green- The New NAR Designation - 01/30/10 07:38 AM
I have just finished a two day Core course for my National Association of Realtors Green Designation. I have an elective to finish on Monday before my designation is complete. I know that Arlington, Va (where I live and work) leans green (hey, it rhymes) and I'll be checking out the programs and policies of the county I live in. It was a fascinating course. I have been always been environmentally conscious and have been stuffing my tolerant clients into my Camry Hybrid for a year now. I've learned alot over the last few days and will be sharing that over time. (1 comments)
Listing and buying "As Is" property - 01/23/10 09:45 AM
As is.....or not? I've been asked quite a bit by buyers about "as is" properties and if can they still ask for things to be done after the home inspection even if they buy the property "as is" IMHO buyers need to be counseled that "in general" if a property is sold "as is" (and I don't just mean with a disclaimer but that there is an "as is" addendum) then they should make their offer assuming that the seller will do nothing and a home inspection is simply for an informational, buy it or not, purpose. It seems like some buyers are taking the (6 comments)
Open Houses; Should realtors do them? Once more the answer is Yes....at least in Arlington - 01/12/10 07:53 AM
I read a blog this morning (again) about why we should not do open houses any more. Baloney (and I mean this in the nicest way). Here's how I feel about this.....keeping in mind, every geography is different but this is how things are here: The writer was worried about their safety. Of course every realtor must look out for their personal safety and if they are concerned may want to consider partnering with someone on open houses. Same goes for showing property when meeting a client for the first time. The writer said people that do open houses have not (5 comments)
Saying goodbye to 2009 in Arlington, Va......was it really so bad? - 01/02/10 04:22 PM
So yesterday I had my annual New Year's Day Open house (not the real estate kind, the Mimosa kind) and there seemed to be this overwhelming relief that 2009 was over and good riddance. Really......was it so bad? I may be a bit biased because my real estate year wasn't so bad, in fact it was pretty darn good. Yeah, I had to work alot harder for it but it builds a bit of character. Certainly it was better than the year before. I know I'm not alone here. Among the people who came to visit yesterday...almost everyone was gainfully employed. (7 comments)
