real estate: Warren County / Front Royal Virginia Home Statistics for December 2011 - 12/19/11 12:40 PM
A glut of inventory????
After reviewing statistics for our area I realized something was very, very wrong.  Statistics show over 9 months of inventory currently on the market, but after showing houses I just didn't believe it.  These results make the marketplace look a little bit better after I take a much closer look at what is happening in our local multiple listing service.
Total Number of Active Listings in Multiple Listing Service                                                                     377
Total Number of Active Listings in Multiple Listing Service that are "To-Be Built"                                     126

real estate: Warren County Virginia - 7.5+ Years of Land Inventory ?!?! - 09/04/10 07:17 AM
Warren County Virginia - 7.5+ Years of Land Inventory ?!?!




Land, They Aren't Making Any More Of It! 
   Good thing in this area!  The last thing we need is more inventory! 
Although they may not be making any more of it, most land sellers and/or their agents in our market area must not be paying attention to current market conditions.  There are 326 active land listings in the local MLS for land in Warren County.  Since 09/04/09, only 42 land sales have occurred.  That would mean we only have a  7.5+ year supply of inventory on the market, provided no other listings come on the market!  That's A … (1 comments)

real estate: No Survey Required - Are you kidding me? - 08/02/10 08:34 AM
No Survey Required - Are you kidding me? 
Buying a home without a survey is almost as crazy as jumping out of a plane without a parachute!
This always makes me feel uneasy when the lender tells my clients that a survey is not necessary.  Especially after I have explained to them how important it is to have one. 
After my one experience in a transaction where my seller did have a survey when he purchased his home, I could never advise my client to not have a survey -- even if one was done within the past 12 months! 
Sitting at the closing table, … (2 comments)

real estate: How Serious Are You? Earnest Money Deposits - 07/06/10 07:31 AM
I have to admit, if I receive one more offer with an earnest money deposit of $100 I think I am going to scream!  In the words of one of my sellers, "Tell them they are buying a house!  Not a piece of furniture, not a new TV, heck, I would be embarassed to give that little of a deposit if I were buying a new car."
Asking the agent why the earnest money deposit is so low, the agent was offended and couldn't believe my seller wanted to know why they would only make a $100 deposit.  "I usually only ask … (1 comments)
