real estate: One of My Best Friends Moved Quickly Out of State... - 02/16/16 04:57 AM
At the end of 2014 one of my good friends asked me what she should do to get her house ready to list for sale.  Normally I don't like to do business with friends for a multitude of reasons but there are certain people you know it will be a breeze.  I walked through her house (as if I had never been there) and gave her 5 or 6 suggestions that would facilitate a quick sale like I would with any client.
In 2015 she had me back, showed me the changes she had made and asked me to list her … (12 comments)

real estate: Oh What A Year it Has Been! - 02/14/16 12:19 AM
It has been a long time since I have actually had the time to post a blog.  Each day I thought about it but was either just too tired or had too much work.  Not a bad problem to have but I definitely missed blogging everyday like I used to.  There is definitely nothing more satisfying than having so much work (in this business) you cannot make time for some of the fun things you like to do.  This year I hope to even it out a little bit so I can get back to blogging.

This month I am blessed as I … (11 comments)

real estate: Be Confident in the Agent You Hire - 02/21/15 11:19 PM
Today I read a post written by Maria Gilda Racelis  "Is It Okay if We Borrow The Pictures You Took of Our Property?"   This is a post where her and a seller have parted ways for whatever reason as we sometimes do and now the sellers are asking if the new agent they now want to use can use her pictures from the previous listing. 
This seems to me to show a feeling from the get go that they are not confident in the abilities of their new agent.  When you are hiring someone especially a licensed professional, you do so … (18 comments)

Great advice for buyers in this market from Jason Crouch.
One of my favorite things about being a real estate broker/agent is helping my buyer clients to negotiate the best deal on the home they have chosen.  Having represented hundreds of buyers over my 13-year career, I've found that each situation is unique, and that's part of what I enjoy.  The mental challenge makes  That may be too strong a word to describe it, but the strategy part is intriguing to me.

When it is time to have that open house are your sellers prepared?  You want that house to look its best no matter what size, shape or condition.  DO A WALK THROUGH Using an unbiased third party take a tour through the home.  Starting from the curb, check the appeal, anything that may appear unattractive or need fixing and especially be aware of any odors that may be offensive.  MAKE THE FRONT WELCOMING Add an attractive wreath or other decoration to the front door.  Make sure the front door is free of dirt and fingerprints.  Make sure the door opens smoothly … (13 comments)

real estate: How To Disconnect From Your Home When Selling - 05/17/10 12:55 PM
What makes a house a home?  The people that live in the house and everything they place in it are reflections of their lifestyle.  When it's for sale, your home becomes a product.  To capture potential buyers' attention, it is important to allow them to visualize living there, in "your" space.  Real estate staging allows that to happen.
The secret is to turn the home back into a house. You, the seller, will be moving, so it helps to begin packing up personal belongings and collections.  This alone opens up each room by decluttering and depersonalizing.  Model homes sell lifestyles.  Everything … (12 comments)
