diana dahlberg realtor: Is Residential Real Estate Still Going Strong? - 08/09/23 12:29 PM

New reports about the housing market show that residential real estate is still going strong despite the ongoing affordability challenges.
Last week, the National Association of Realtors released their Pending Home Sales data for June 2023. The report below shows the number of pending home sales – which equates to the actual signed contracts on existing single-family homes and condos – rose 0.3% from May to June.
Since February, this is the first time that pending home sales have increased. This is very significant because it shows that even though mortgage rates have  elevated, home buyers are starting to accept the higher borrowing … (4 comments)

Is This Normal? Is This Really Happening?
Now What Are We Going To Do?  
A True Story in Real Estate
This is my second Entry for the March Challenge hosted by Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP and Kathleen Daniels, Probate & Trust Specialist 
I listed a Kenosha house for sale and was working with a mentally unstable Mrs Seller who was going through a divorce (and Mr Seller did not want to sell).
Another agent brought us a buyer and they had the home inspected to meet the terms of their offer.  The inspector found a few items that needed work, but the sellers said they were not … (20 comments)

What was the original reason for Daylight Savings Time?
DST (daylight savings time) started in the United States with the Standard Time Act of 1918, a wartime measure for seven (7) months during World War I in the interest of adding more daylight hours to conserve energy resources.
The idea of aligning waking hours in daylight hours to conserve candles was first proposed in 1784 by … (8 comments)

How to Choose A Selling REALTOR®
Your REALTOR® is the person you count on to get your home sold, get you the best possible purchase price, and handle all of the details that go into selling a home.

Take a few simple tips into account.
Selling Is Different From Buying

Today I am going to address a subject commonly heard and my response to my seller. My hope is it will help you as a Seller or as a Realtor when having this "discussion" as many of us have -- and that it will help you in making the right decision for your situation.

diana dahlberg realtor: I Don't Need a Real Estate Agent to Sell My Home - 01/23/23 11:22 AM
I Don’t Need a Real Estate Agent to Sell My Home
So you are thinking about going it alone?  You prefer to sell your home without the benefit of a real estate professional, because you know your home better than any REALTOR®/AGENT/BROKER ever could. Well, obviously, this is true.
But knowing what it is like to live in your home and knowing how to sell it—or any property—are entirely different things. So, before you commit to putting your home on the market as an FSBO, (aka For Sale by Owner) I would love to sit down and go over a few important details … (6 comments)

diana dahlberg realtor: Do Mortgage Rates Really Effect Home Sales? - 10/08/22 02:36 PM
Do Mortgage Rates Really Effect Home Sales?
If you ask a renter why they are choosing not to buy a home right now, an answer you will probably hear is “rates are too high.” If you asked a renter in the summer or fall of 2020 why they decided to buy, you would probably hear “rates were low.”
The highest national average a 30 year fixed rate mortgage has reached since January 2007 is 6.70% which was in July 2007. Believe it or not, Wisconsin home sales WERE NOT at an all-time low. The fewest monthly home sales Wisconsin had in this time … (12 comments)

diana dahlberg realtor: Has Wallpaper Lost its Popularity? - 09/05/22 03:51 PM
Has Wallpaper Lost its Popularity?
Wallpaper has been used as early as 200 B.C. by the ancient Chinese, who glued rice paper to their walls.
It is usually sold in rolls and is applied onto a wall using wallpaper paste. Wallpapers can come plain as "lining paper", textured, with a regular repeating pattern design, or, much less common today, with a single non-repeating large design carried over a set of sheets.
Removal of the existing wallpaper can be a simple procedure or a day or two of scraping and scraping and scraping.  Depending upon how the wallpaper was originally put on the wall can … (12 comments)

diana dahlberg realtor: 5 Tips for Making Your Best Offer on a Home - 08/27/22 09:51 AM
What is a Seller's Market?
A "Seller's Market" is when there are more home buyers in a particular area looking to purchase a home than actual houses listed for sale. 
A "Seller's Market" usually includes rising home prices and stronger competition among home buyers. Also, home sellers may have the upper hand when it comes time for negotiation. However, even if the competition is fierce, rest assured that you can still buy a home.
Buying a home can be difficult, especially when buying in a "Seller's Market".
