real estate: Strange Weather, Strange Real Estate Market! - 04/26/12 12:35 AM
The amount of Canton Michigan Homes for sale on the market continues to be low. The most common conversation and questions that I am having with my Buyers is, "Aren't there any more houses to look at?" We find ourselves in an overbalanced market with more Buyers than Sellers. Just as strange as the weather we have had recently, is this strange  real estate market that is unbalanced yet not a sellers market. Home values and sales are continuing to rise slightly in the Canton & Plymouth area, which Realcomp MLS accounted for in the data they released a couple of weeks … (1 comments)

real estate: BOA Leading Short Sale Approval?? - 04/25/12 01:20 AM
Short Sales have become the new norm in this market, and Bank of America is a major player in this market. I was shocked to read that BOA is leading the way in Short Sale approval according to Bloomberg. I can honestly say that I have not experienced an easy or fast short sale approval with BOA. I hope that this report is accurate and that all lenders will follow an easier path to short sale approval.  
 "BOA approved 5,276 short sales in January, topping JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM) (JPM), with 2,976, and Wells Fargo & Co. (WFC) (WFC), the biggest … (2 comments)

real estate: Real Estate Is A Contact Sport - 10/20/11 05:21 AM
Selling real estate is a contact sport. I have been on the receiving end of many sharp elbows. But if I am to be honest, I have thrown a few myself. Tired, frustrated, exasperated, irritated... I have many excuses. But, instead of coming up with an excuse I should have come up with an apology. Integrity is one of the most important attributes for me to protect. So, I recently studied how I want to apologize with integrity in the future:
2)            DON’T MAKE EXCUSES.
4)            CHANGE YOUR … (3 comments)

real estate: Americans Are Moving - 12/23/10 04:49 AM
The Constitutionally mandated enumeration of every America citizen is complete and the details are starting to trickle out of their D.C. repository. Like with every census, there are winners and losers. The losers appear to be the industrial northern regions, which continue to lose populations. The winners... anywhere warm. The south continues to attract population.
What does this mean for real estate and our market? In Michigan, the trend of declining population will delay the recovery of home values. In the south and areas that have an attractional population, will have the ability to more quickly erode their housing inventory. … (1 comments)

real estate: The Death of the Franchise??? - 11/19/10 02:58 AM
Buggy whips, VCR's, Newspapers, Magazines, And now real estate franchises? 
I have had several conversations with real estate franchise owners over the past several months about whether we are seeing the national real estate franchises on their way to becoming extinct. We have seen many, many franchise offices close in this dismal market period. In contrast, there have been many start-up Brokerages that have found a foothold in this market.  
In addition to the very difficult market conditions, I think there are several major market trends that will spell troubled times for the national real estate franchises:
The REO market has shifted many listings to … (64 comments)

real estate: Streotyped - 10/07/10 04:29 AM
I have been watching the new homicide show, Detroit 1-8-7 this Fall. I have been watching the show more because it is filmed in and around Detroit. The jury is still out for me whether I will keep the show on my Tivo list, but for now I am enjoying seeing Detroit weekly on the little screen.
During this past weeks episode a real estate agent was featured as one of the characters. The show quickly developed the agent as unethical, hiring gang members to scare homeowners to drive down values of homes so that a greedy investor could come in an buy up the homes … (1 comments)

real estate: Cash Is King!?? - 09/22/10 05:01 AM
I can tell within about 60 seconds of speaking to a Buyer, whether they have been listening to Real Estate investing gurus or watching TV news articles about how to buy foreclosed properties cheaply. Usually the "educated" buyer will begin using the phrases, "I have cash and cash is king", "banks want to move these properties", "fifty cents on the dollar" tip me off to what usually ends up being a failed offer.
A few weeks ago I received a call from an interested buyer that wanted to view a foreclosed property that I had just listed. After meeting the buyer at … (7 comments)

real estate: ReStore - 09/01/10 03:58 PM
I visited for the first time a Habitat for Humanity, ReStore near me in Ann Arbor Michigan. I was surprised to find a warehouse full of gently used building materials from doors, windows, paint, toilets, sinks, to lighting. Next time you need to replace that door... stop by a ReStore and check out their supply.
If your garage is full of building items that are left from past projects, ReStore will give you a tax receipt for those items. The best part is that the proceeds go towards Habitat's efforts.
When you choose Scott Petersen and The Petersen Team to handle your Canton/Plymouth real estate needs, you choose  a Realtors® … (4 comments)
