home: Maximum marketing for your home listing. - 03/10/19 09:34 AM
 
First lets give a quick rundown of the roles of agents in your home sale. In the great majority of home sales there are two agents. The listing agent is the one with the sign in yard and their responsibility is to market the home and represent the best interests of the seller. The buyers agent is driving around and showings homes while representing the best interest of the buyer.
Every once in a while the listing agent will show or sell their own listing but that is only an occasional happening. While it is not the focus of this post, the … (4 comments)

home: Will I save any money if purchase without a Buyer Agent? - 07/21/14 03:45 AM
 
I get this question from buyers a lot.  Many are under the misconception that if there is no buyers agent then the listing agent will reduce their commission.  Wrong! 
 
*If there is no listing agent the buyers agent has more work to do.
*The deals are harder to close.  Once they get in to the situation they tend to not want to listen to any advice the agent gives since he is "just trying to sell them a house".
*Greed!  The seller has already agreed to pay x% commission whether or not the agent splits it.  If there is no split then the agent … (1 comments)

home: Should you invest in real estate? - 05/31/11 05:54 AM
Investors will lead the way in housing recovery.

An article in todays Inman News says that investors will be up to 3 times more active in the buyers market than owner occupant buyers. I agree and have little doubt that investors will lead the way for a housing recovery.

Inman News

Imagine buying a stock or mutual fund for 0-20% down, finance the balance, have that stock or mutual fund generate enough dividends(rent) that it will pay the payments on the amount financed, getting a bundle of tax benefits, and after 20-30 years the loan is all paid … (1 comments)

I found this great post about why buyers need to have their own agent.  Peggy is in Ct. but the process is pretty much the same here in Ga. 
You need to have somebody look out for you.  Home buying can be a complicated process with several speed bumps before closing.  A good buyers agent is going to look out for you, negotiate on your behalf, and look out for your best inbterests!

I want to buy a home - Now What?

Over the past week or so I have been following a couple of threads on Zillow and Trulia posted by potential home buyers who want to know where to start on the home buying process.  The answers from Realtors is almost universally the same .... talk to a lender and get pre qualified for your purchase.  I must respectfully disagree!  Getting pre qualified is important but it is not he first step.

Making a down payment and qualifying for a mortgage is very different from making sure that you are … (1 comments)

home: Fewer home owners "upside down"" is bad news? - 12/15/10 01:55 AM
The headlines sounded good until you got to the details.  Real estate tracking company, CoreLogic, released a report this week announcing that fewer people with mortgages owe more than their home is worth.  From 25% the percentage is down to about 22.5%.  It was a big splash of economic news until you got to the rest of the story. 

The reason that fewer owners are "upside down" is that they are no longer owners.  The homes have been given back to the mortgage holder or foreclosed..   Fewer U.S. Homeowners Underwater on Their Mortgage | RISMedia If you want … (1 comments)
