HA! Commissions Beat Points Any Day. I just spoke with a lovely gentleman who found one of my ActiveRain posts from 2010 about luxury homes in Ashburn, Loudoun County VA. Tomorrow, I'm previewing for him and I'll get a package to him as soon as possible.  New or resale in Ashburn is his market.  ...

HOW MUCH EQUITY DO HOME OWNERS REALLY HAVE???  Inspired by Phil Leng in his great article, Real Estate Market Report Underwater Homes Starting to Float Home owners gaining equity???  I'm trying to figure out how.  Home prices are no higher than before the real estate BOOM.  Home prices are no hig...

OOPS!!!  Just disqualified. On reading Jackie's post below, I looked at Chris Anne Clelend's announcement and realized that, while I did post each and every day, I failed to remember to make one post each week about local events. DANG.  See:  November, 30 Posts in 30 Days, Blogging Challenge Of c...

An interesting post by Richard Weisser, see:  The worst offender seizing content? Would you believe your own MLS? prompts a discussion about copyright of MLS "LISTING INFORMATION". It's possible that Richard's MLS goes too far in claiming a more absolute right to the copyright for data entered by...

MLS stealing listing information???  I don't believe so. Read Richard's thoughtful post.  However, I see this quite differently.  Our MLS has the same clause. IMO, what they're saying is "LISTING CONTENT" belongs to the MLS, which is a warning to other agents that the listing CONTENT is copyright...

WALLPAPER, DATED OR NOT. . . .  SERIOUS BARRIER TO SALE. I can witness the fact that wallpaper is a definite barrier to sale.   Many people, especially when they're looking at moderate priced homes, do NOT want to redecorate after moving in a newly purchased home. They want to live in that home, ...

A BUYER CAN SELECT ANY LENDER THEY WANT. . .  That doesn't mean the seller must accept your offer. An enlightening article this morning by Sally and David Hanson inspired this post.   See: Buyers Choose Their Lenders....Don't They ? Over many years of real estate practice, a few things have becom...

OFFICE EXCLUSIVE??  Or, Pocket Listing??? Interesting proposition.  However, where is the benefit for the seller in this offer.   If it sells this year, the broker is paid. If not, it gets listed in the MLS and available to ALL agent AND THEIR BUYER/CLIENTS. Unless there is a serious reduction in...
