fl: Pulling Back the Curtain. A Behind the Scenes Look at the Real Estate Business - 02/23/09 07:44 AM
As a REALTOR®, it's easy to forget that the public doesn't always know how we get paid and/or how the real estate business works. They don't see what happens behind the curtain. So I'm pulling back the curtain. I believe the consumer might enjoy learning about the hidden part of the real estate transaction, and at times, just how much can be hanging by a thread. Hopefully, you'll enjoy learning about the process behind the process. To keep this as simple as possible, I'll start by stating that REALTORS® are not employees. We're Independent Contractors. We don't get a W-2, with … (6 comments)

fl: The REALTOR® Code of Ethics: An Expanded Perspective - 01/06/09 05:08 PM
Over a year ago, I wrote a blog post about the REALTOR® Code of Ethics. In real estate, our Code of Ethics is something that sets us apart from other industries, and even other arms of the real estate industry. There are so many misconceptions of REALTORS®, but the guidelines for every REALTORS®' actions are spelled out in our Code of Ethics. So I wanted to provide this information that will educate the public, and put some misconceptions to rest. You'll also find out how YOU (the consumer) can stand up for your rights!
Last week, I completed my recent CoE … (13 comments)

fl: DON'T BLAME THE AMERICAN CONSUMER FOR THE STATE OF THE HOUSING MARKET OR THE ECONOMY. - 01/03/09 01:54 PM

The pure statistics shown above show a clear trend to a declining market.  Numbers don't lie.
WHAT DID THEY KNOW AND WHEN DID THEY KNOW IT? 
How many consumers knew that the securitization of mortgages was going to cause a meltdown at Fannie Mae???  Very few.  Why did Fannie and Freddie lower their standards to purchase Sub-Prime and Alt-A mortgages that would reset in 2-3 years??  Did Fannie and Freddie warn the consumers buying homes in 2003-2005 that home prices could implode once the price got too high for the average American consumer to qualify for the price, even with … (6 comments)

fl: Florida's Home Foreclosures - 10/15/08 07:07 PM
I was just commenting on a real estate blog post here on Active Rain, with the TV turned down pretty low. I tend to blog this way quite freqently. I don't really like to just sit and watch TV. Actually, I think I'm incapable of doing just one thing at a time. Anyway, I wasn't really paying attention to the TV until I heard a commercial that had just one statement that got my attention. It was about the real estate foreclosure market in Florida.
With the presidential election coming up in just a few weeks, there have been a lot … (11 comments)

fl: UPDATE on "How to Handle Lying, Unethical REALTORS®" - 10/01/08 12:44 AM
Many of you who commented on my recent blog post about my dealings with an unethical real estate agent, had many questions which I attempted to answer by editing the post a couple of times, and by adding a few comments as well. (Sorry it's such a mess now.) As I said in that post, there were problems every single day of that transaction. That listing agent was the epitome of what most REALTORS® do not exemplify! That experience just solidified the reason I'm primarily a listing agent! In the 8 years that I've been a full-time REALTOR®, and the 14 … (16 comments)

fl: Would You Buy This House? - 09/20/08 10:25 AM
Believe it or not, the photos in this post are of a house I recently sold. We just closed last week. You should know that these sellers are experienced at buying and repairing houses that need a lot of work. But this house brings new meaning to needing a lot of work! It needs a LOT of work! And just before closing we had one more problem that caused the entire ceiling in the garage to collapse. Unfortunately, I didn't get pictures of that disaster.
However, I do need to mention that during the course of this transaction, I had the … (11 comments)

fl: Reasons to Buy Real Estate in Ormond Beach FL - 09/12/08 06:16 PM
If you're looking for a place to move, or invest in real estate in Central Florida, or if you've been specifically considering the Daytona Beach area, you might want to consider buying real estate in the city of Ormond Beach. Ormond Beach is a beautiful community, just north of Daytona Beach.
I've written several blog posts about Ormond Beach, which cover everything from real estate market statistics with graphs and charts, to posts with fun things to do in the area. In this post I'm going to provide links to my previous Ormond Beach posts, so if you're a real estate … (6 comments)

fl: Daytona Beach and Volusia County, Commercial Real Estate Changes - 07/20/08 03:52 PM

If you're a commercial real estate owner in the Daytona Beach area, with real estate to sell, you may or may not be aware of the fact that up until now, the decline in the national real estate market has been primariy limited to the residential market; at least, that's been the case in Volusia county. But as of this year, mostly due to the lack of buyer's ability to get real estate financing, the commercial real estate market is now in decline as well. And with this impact on the commercial market, I believe we're going to see some … (9 comments)

We all know the real estate industry is in dire straits. But I just read something that takes the proverbial cake.
I had so many titles running through my mind for this post. Thankfully, I found something appropriate to settle on. LOL
Check this out. For this woman, the housing market is so bad, she's offering her hand in marriage along with an acceptable contract on her home. When I saw the photo of the woman, SOOO many more thoughts ran through my mind, which I am determined not to add to this post. I'll let you form your own opinions. … (18 comments)

fl: Real Estate Video for Beautiful 3 bed, 2 bath pool home in Central Florida - 06/12/08 11:15 PM
Most of you know that I create full video tours for my real estate listings if at all possible, and have been doing so for about two years now. I've never been a fan of virtual tours because of the distortion factor, and could never understand why REALTORS® weren't just video taping their listings. Two years ago, the only place to host the videos was on You Tube (hardly the most professional platform). But now, we have a plethora of choices of professional real estate video hosting sites.
I have to admit, this particular video should have been done weeks ago. … (7 comments)

fl: Housing Discrimination. Do you know the Law? - 06/03/08 04:46 PM

Real estate agents, mortgage bankers, and mortgage brokers already know about the Federal Fair Housing Act. Most agents for both real estate sales and lending are not only aware of these laws, but strictly adhere to them. But are you aware that if a real estate buyer or seller starts even talking about discriminating against a protecting class, as specified in the Fair Housing Act, real estate and mortage agents are supposed to tell the discriminator that they are not able to work with them, and walk away. Any other action is a risk of losing their license.
