dave halpern realtor: To Avoid Realtor Overload Have A Real Estate Team Help You Buy Or Sell - 11/25/17 06:43 PM
Have you ever heard these musings from a friend selling or buying a house?
My Realtor is too busy
My Realtor doesn't do open houses 
My Realtor doesn't do enough marketing
My Realtor doesn't communicate enough
My Realtor doesn't move fast enough when a hot property hits the market and we lose out on a house we loved
The Realtor may just be too busy!
So, next time you need a Realtor, ask yourself:
Will my Realtor be carrying an OVERSIZE LOAD?
You should definitely consider using a Realtor who is a member of a team.
There are real estate teams and there are solo agents. Solo agents have to do by themselves the 100+ … (19 comments)

dave halpern realtor: Your Loan Is Approved, No It Isn't, Yes It Is, No It Isn't - 11/18/17 08:34 PM
Here's another reason buyers need a professional Realtor in Louisville, and frankly anywhere;
Realtors understand the language the mortgage brokers and loan officers use when they give status updates.
It's amazing how many times the buyer can be told they are approved for the loan but then be told there's a problem or the underwriters need one more thing.
Here are signs the buyers are NOT approved yet for their loan:
"Congratulations! You're pre-approved!" That means you're not approved yet."Congratulations! You're approved! Now we're sending it to underwriting." Translation: You're not approved yet."Congratulations! You're approved with conditions." Translation: You're not approved yet."Congratulations! You're approved! We just need one … (28 comments)

dave halpern realtor: Replace Burned Out Bulbs When Selling Your House - 11/16/17 06:21 PM
When potential buyers walk through your home, you want them to get a warm and fuzzy feeling. You don't want them distracted by things that are wrong with the house.
So here's a tip that will cost the seller five to thirty dollars. 
Replace the burned out light bulbs!
Consciously or subconsciously the buyers may be asking what else is wrong with the house.
If the owners don't even bother to replace light bulbs, what other maintenance are they neglecting?
Are they servicing the furnace? Are they even changing or cleaning the furnace filters? Have they shortened the lifespan of the furnace, the central air, … (12 comments)

dave halpern realtor: Intricate Green Yard Art Beautifies My Home - 11/12/17 07:59 PM
It is art. It's organic. It's natural. It's beautiful. It's pristine. It just shows up in my front yard every year.
These are the green leaves that are in a hurry. They don't have the patience to turn bright yellow, to dry up and to hopelessly cling to the twigs and limbs that brought them to life. Nope. They just leap to the ground with the first Louisville autumn wind to weave a green tapestry blanket that covers and protects the grass and soil below from the imminent cold and snow.
Nature in harmony. Right in my front yard, and probably in your front … (6 comments)

dave halpern realtor: When HOA Directors Complain That a Short Sale is Priced Too Low - 10/20/17 03:58 AM
Fact: Short sale properties sell for less than market value.
Fact: Neighbors do not like when a home sells that can lower the comps of the neighborhood.
Fact: HOA Directors by job definition have their noses in other people's business.
Fact: HOA Directors sometimes complain that a short sale in their community is priced too low.
Fact: The seller needs relief from the mortgage payments and the HOA fees and needs the property sold. In a short sale, usually, the price is not the seller's main concern.
So how does the Realtor explain the lower price when accosted by the HOA Directors?
Fewer buyers will be … (9 comments)
