buyers: Change Might Very Well Be Coming- 15,000 Tax Credit For Home Buyers - 02/05/09 12:52 PM

There has been a lot of talk about the 7,500 tax credit for first time home buyers.  The homebuyer's tax credit was intended to stimulate the housing industry.  Many felt it was more like a interest free loan because it had to be paid back over 15 years.  Well now this may be replaced by a $15,000 tax credit for buyers if the 2009 economic stimulus package ultimately passes. I believe this would help many buyers who are undecided, to move forward and purchase more homes, which in effect would help sellers as well.  This could change the current housing market.  Many Americans are upset about … (11 comments)

I was reading another forum today and a real estate agent posting the question:  Buyers-where are you searching online?
There were a good amount of answers.  Most buyers said they do their searches on,,, or  I was happy to hear that, as I advertise all my listings on those sites, as well as many others.  Some preferred specific local sites fed by their MLS.  It is interesting to note that their least favorite site is one that they have to register on to view properties.  I have to admit I hate that too, and have not added … (10 comments)

buyers: Why I Work With A Full Service Brokerage - 12/08/08 04:17 AM
When I was looking for a place to hang my license, I looked for a company that offered services that I would personally want if I were looking to buy, or sell a home.  People are very busy these days.  Most households have two adults working full time.  The most precious thing to them is time.

How To Prepare Your House To Sell                                
Recently I wrote a blog on 10 Questions To Ask Your Listing Agent                        
The next step is to get the house ready to put on the market.  You don't want to just list it right?  You want to sell it.  Here are some helpful hints:
1. Disassociate Yourself From The Home.
Your home probably has a lot of great memories, and you are emotionally attached to it, but it's now time to look at it as a product to market.  Pretend that you're a buyer looking at it.  Would you like what … (1 comments)
