real estate in ashland: Negotiating - It can take Time! - 08/26/11 11:08 AM
Negotiating a real estate contract in the Ashland, Medford can take time.  Time?  Yes, some times the most effective way to get what you want is to allow time on both sides.  If tempers are up or it seems like things are at a stand still.  Pause.   It allows both sides to think about outcomes, correct poor communication, and get to "deal" that will close.
 
Oh, and by the way.....This works for personal communication with your friends and family too!

It is back to my maiden name for me, but I still list and sell real estate in the Ashland, Medford,  like I did before.  It is the same old me...and in some ways....the really "old" me.  I haven't gone by this name since 1983.   I was debating what to do about my name, then a few days ago, it just felt right to go back to ME.  Now, I have to remember all the place I need to change my name........

real estate in ashland: Most Interesting thing I learned about Real Estate today. - 05/24/11 09:15 AM
I was part of the Brian Buffini live webinar today and as always, I learned something about real estate.   According to Buffini, in California, 28% of all offers are rejected and 14% did not close due to financing.
How can I apply this statistic to real estate in the Ashland, Medford area?  Get my buyers pre-approved!!  Pre-approved buyers are less likely to get rejected and more likley to close escrow.

 
The second moral of the story is it doesn't matter how long you have been in the real estate business, you can always learn more.

real estate in ashland: How's the Real Estate Market in Ashland, Oregon? - 05/23/11 11:52 AM
I got an email today from a potential relocating customer asking me  "how's the real estate market in Ashland?"   This was my response
 
Ashland is a little different than some areas in that is basically no-growth so although prices have come down, not to the extent that some of the other areas in the valley have come down.  The number of distress sales has also be about 50 to 60% less than those areas also.   It is an area that is a real estate market made up primarily of retired Californians so the job market does not matter as much.   … (0 comments)

real estate in ashland: Things Have Changed in the Real Esate Business - 05/11/11 05:07 AM
How many times have we had to explain to clients that things have changed in the real estate business in Ashland and Medford (and all over)? 
This time I am talking about the real estate lending industry.
My well qualified client who last got a loan about 4 years ago was stunned about all the changes.
First, I needed to explain that appraisals cost more because they (the borrowers) are now protected against fraud.
Second, I needed to explain that lenders have a new process on disclosing rates and fees.
Third, in Oregon, title and escrow fees are regulated by the … (1 comments)

real estate in ashland: E. Medford Home under $170,000? Yes, but it sold already... - 05/11/11 04:43 AM
This blog post would normally be a post with pictures on the home at 2010 Lawnridge drive, Medford, but before we really even got the MLS listing up and running, we sold it!!!
I told another agent about the listing we had coming up....He showed it as the information was being loaded unto the computer and a few hours later, we had a cash offer, close in two weeks.....
So even though, people say the real estate market in the Medford, Ashland area is not great, when you have a good property priced correctly, it will sell promptly.

real estate in ashland: Price per Square Foot is Useful to Know - 04/07/11 09:28 AM
The average price per square foot of sold properties is one useful number to know when you are pricing your home to sell in the Ashland, Medford area or negotiating to buy a home.    It works best when you are truly comparing apples to apples. 
For example: In a housing tract where homes are fairly homogeneous, the avg. price per square foot works well since most of the homes are built about the same time, similar lot size, and the same neighborhood.  In this case, you really can use PPsqft fairly accurately.
However, if you are in an area like Ashland, … (4 comments)

real estate in ashland: A Factor to Consider when Pricing your Home to Sell in the Ashland, Medford area - 03/23/11 07:25 AM

One of the most important if not the most important measures of the real estate market's condition in the Ashland, Medford area is the absorption rate.  To figure this out, you first need to figure out the current properties for sale(active) in your market segment.  Step two, is figure out the number of properties sold in the last month.  You can do shorter or longer periods, but I think 6 months gives the best indication.   Divide current inventory by sold inventory and this will tell you how many months it will take to clear all the existing properties listed for … (0 comments)
