sellers: Is Your Listing Posted As A Rental/Lease On Craigslist Without Your Permission? - 06/22/11 08:17 AM
 
(Note: This is a duplicate post so I could include the groups that didn't fit on the first post)
This just happened to my sister and brother-in-law in Baton Rouge, LA and I thought it would be timely to share with you.
Their house has been on the market for about a year and the price happens to fall in that "in between" price range where houses just aren't selling very fast at all.  You know the range...not inexpensive enough to appeal to the bargain hunters and not expensive enough to appeal to the high-end house hunters.
Anyway, their real … (3 comments)

sellers: Opportunity Is All Around...? - 05/02/11 01:01 AM
 

(note: this is a repost for the groups I couldn't include in the first post)
Residential real estate is perhaps the most unique of all sales arenas.  Sales trainers have said for decades that "opportunity is all around you."  That has varying degrees of truth, depending on what it is that you're selling.
 
With real estate, though, it's especially true becauseeveryone needs a place to live.  This can sometimes be forgotten as we miss opportunities to make new contacts while we're going about our own business.  Especially in this economy, it's important to be mentally prepared for those opportunities … (5 comments)

sellers: Average Home Values At An ALL-TIME HIGH - 04/19/11 01:49 AM
(this is a re-post for the groups I couldn't include in the first post)
I'm sure some of you are waiting for the punchline, right?  Actually, there is no punchline.  I felt kinda punch-drunk when I saw the Case-Shiller Home Value Index update from July of last year.
Then, strange thought occurred to me.
Except for the Housing Boom spike, average home values are at an all-time high.  Hard to believe, but see what you think:  CLICK HERE TO SEE A HUGE VERSION OF THE CHART

sellers: The Double Dip: Another Catalyst for Fear and Indecision? - 03/22/11 06:06 AM
Baskin Robbins is nowhere to be found. This double-dip that is making its way to the national news is serving as a catalyst for more writers to have a negative influence on the market through their own speculation.
The national news typically holds more credibility with people than the local news...to the point of ridiculousness. The national news can report a national trend in the real estate market, while your local market may be the complete opposite of that trend. No matter how much the local news people report what's happening locally, the influence of the national news seems to win … (0 comments)
