Real Estate Agent - Encore Realty
    I have been spending a lot of time lately thinking about lead generation.  What is the best way to get people to notice you?  How do you convince them that you are a valuable leader in your profession?  That is the million dollar question isn't it?  No matter what business you are in we are a...
As I was sitting at home the other day, I was thinking about our current real estate market.  Of course, it seems all I do is thinking about real estate.  Anyway, I came up with a great idea to help improve the value of your home and all it requires you to do is one simple thing.  TURN OFF YOUR T...
  As we have all heard or read, the dollar has not been doing so well as of late.  But wait, there are signs of things turning around for the dollar.  On Friday, the dollar bounced back against the Euro after hitting a record low against it on Thursday.  The dollar has also bounced back against t...
   I am wondering if the rest of you get tired of reading, or hearing, all of the negativity in the news?  Sure, the economy could be better, but it's not like we need to go jump off of a bridge either.  All I seem to hear is how bad the housing market is and how home prices are dropping like a r...
   What is the number one thing needed to get your home sold?  Money.  It is that simple.

   As I do daily, I came across an article on the housing market.  It went on to describe what some lawmakers are offering as part of the solution to the problem.  I am sure that all of you have your own point of view and it may be different from that of a Realtor.  I don't think it matters what ...
   I recently read some information on the pricing of homes and the effect that it has on the market conditions.  Think about this for a second.  Let's say you want to sell your home and you think it is worth $300,000.  I come to you with all of the data and show you why your home is only worth $...
I get asked from time to time, when will the market get better?  While I do not know the exact date, I can tell you this.  One way to forecast the future is to look at past trends.  What the real estate market has done in the past is a good indicator of what it may do in the future.  Makes sense ...
  If you have read my blog or know me personally, you will know that I am huge on education.  I always try to make sure my clients know more about real estate after they have done a transaction with me.  I want them to understand what is going on every step of the way.  Why?  The more they know, ...
I saw a statement on the web this morning that made me a wee bit angry.  It read, Existing Home Sales Hits 9yr. Low. This statement is an eye catcher for sure and I wonder if it was just used to get attention.  If you look at that statement, you will find very little fact in it.  First off, which...
