The Difficulty in Pricing a Home Accurately
 
How Realtors Price Homes, A Quick Scenario with John, Rob & Judy
  Realtor John Doe walks into 123 Main St. and sits down with Rob and Judy Brown.  Realtor John does a walkthrough of the home with the sellers, where he assesses the home for condition, upgrades, amenities, and is also secondarily assessing how the home "shows" (whether items need to be removed or if staging is needed).  John brings what most Realtors bring with them - paperwork to sign for listing the home (agreement and disclosures) as well as a detailed list of homes … (2 comments)

placentia homes: Z-Estimate vs. Nic-Estimate - 02/05/16 03:30 AM

 
Here's what I think - Zillow is Huge, people want to know one thing - What is my Home Worth? Zillow is the only big website that claims to do that. But, since they are based in Seattle and don't have access to your interior and upgrades, their "Zestimates" are horrible. Trulia is a little more accurate and Redfin has the best user-friendly search tools. Want the best? I pay good money to have access to the MLS (Multiple Listing Service). People often find a home they like on Zillow and ask me to give them more detail on the property. … (0 comments)

placentia homes: What I've Learned from Placentia and Yorba Linda Open Houses - 08/31/12 09:15 AM
Well, let me start off by saying that I'd rather be out meeting people than couped up in an office all day typing at a computer (wait, I'm couped up typing right now : 0 )   But, what I mean is, when given the chance, I'd rather be out talking to people in person about real estate.
The Primary Purpose of an Open House is to showcase the listing, to allow prospective buyers to see the home "in person," in short - to sell the home.  
   However, there are some ancillary results from holding a home open, including the opportunity … (0 comments)

placentia homes: Short Sale Tips - 06/14/11 06:14 AM
What is a Short Sale?
A short sale occurs when the seller’s lender decides to accept a discounted payoff to relieve an existing mortgage. A seller does not need to be in default before a lender considers a short sale. A lender may consider a short sale if the value of the home has fallen
Do Your Research

placentia homes: 5 Things to Scare Away Any Potential Buyers - 06/13/11 07:17 AM
1. Odors
Lingering odors such as cigarette smoke or pets will be one of the first things buyers notice upon entering your home. These first impressions can make or break a potential sale. You may have grown used to some odors in your home and therefore should ask someone who does not live there to give it a sniff. Make sure to completely get rid of these odors; don't just cover them up with sprays or perfumes.
 
2. Pets
Pets that are free to roam the house may frighten buyers and scare away those with allergies. Buyers may perceive the … (0 comments)

placentia homes: Alta Vista South, Placentia Homes Market Update October 12, 2010 - 10/12/10 02:57 PM
Here we are at the middle of October, kicking off that fourth quarter of 2010 and nearing the busy days of Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas.  A lot has transpired this year in Alta Vista South with home owners seeing more short sales and foreclosures in their neighborhood than in previous years.  Certainly, the market has come down and has BEEN coming down for quite some time as evidenced by what buyers are willing to pay for a home in the high end areas of Placentia.  For example, I listed a William Lyon home at 904 Spyglass (click here for photos) that … (0 comments)
