real estate auctioneer: Why Hiring a Professional Remodeler Is Smarter than a DIY Project - 04/04/10 04:02 PM
When it comes time to remodel, many homeowners think “do-it-yourself” or DIY is the smartest and most cost effective way to get the job done. And while popular TV shows on HGTV and publications at the home improvement store boast the ease of such projects, Jeff Brecko, vice president of Aurora Custom Remodeling, advises homeowners to take an in-depth look at their project and consider all options before tackling such a large undertaking.“DIY projects can be great if you are taking on a small project, but when remodeling major portions of a home, such as a kitchen or bathroom, there are … (0 comments)

real estate auctioneer: New Home Sales Plunge to '63 Levels - 02/24/10 02:56 PM
Sales of new single-family homes plunged last month, underscoring the fragility in the housing market.Sales dropped 11.2% in January from a month earlier to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 309,000, the Commerce Department said Wednesday. The decline brought sales to their lowest level since the government began tracking the numbers in 1963. Sales were 6.1% lower than in January 2009.This gauge of new-home sales is particularly volatile because it is based on a very small sample size and carries a wide margin of error. Still, the sharp decline is an indication that the housing market remains feeble, despite improvements in … (3 comments)

real estate auctioneer: Credit Suisse: Five Threats To Housing - 02/12/10 01:40 PM
The Spring selling season. And Dan Oppenheim, a home-building analyst with Credit Suisse, predicts we’ll not only see one this year, but it will likely be strong. Builders are shifting from survival to rebuilding profitability - “a welcome relief after the past several years”  - but five threats remain:   1. Tax credit expires. The government is offering up to $8,000 to entice buyers, which will create urgency before the April 30 expiration. But that means orders will likely be condensed in the early spring, with estimated order growth of 21% in the first quarter and 5% in the second. “Pulled-forward demand … (0 comments)

It’s also one of the most effective ways to conserve natural resources, create less pollution and reduce the amount of waste sent to the landfill.Seventy-five percent of the waste we generate in American homes is recyclable but less than 35% is actually making it to a recycling center. Know Your Numbers: All plastic containers have a little number inside recycling arrows located on the bottom which identifies the type of plastic used to make the product.

real estate auctioneer: 2010 Business Planning Tip using the Buy Cycle Sales Funnel - 12/22/09 04:13 PM
I finished working on my 2010 Business Plan using a Buy Cycle Sales Funnel designed to maximize quality sales time while helping to improve the customer situation. This funnel is a Commitment Driven Model which is more production driven accountable. This requires the customer to acknowledge their pain followed by a commitment to spend money, choosing to no longer live with their problem. When the customer makes a commitment to the funding stage only then can a value be placed on the potential sale.
The net result will be improved sales calls providing better customer service and a business plan with … (0 comments)

real estate auctioneer: Commitment Driven Sales Process - Buyer - Seller Sales Funnel - 10/27/09 03:57 AM
Buy Cycle Sales Funnel
Having a well developed sales process is critical to success in any economy but is especially important today when buyers have so many competitive choices.
It is common for sales people to be optimistic about their sales pipelines that they lose sight of the need for buyer and seller commitment to successfully close the deal. A commitment driven model is more realistic as it is benefit driven rather than featured focused.
The customer must be interviewed to acknowledge to the sales person their problem and the pain the problem is causing.
The funding stage is the next … (0 comments)

real estate auctioneer: What type of Real Estate is best suited for a Real Estate Auction? - 09/22/09 01:51 AM
I am often asked by Realtors what type of Real Estate is best suited for a Real Estate Auction and the answer is: Property which is in Demand.
On the other hand, another question I am asked is who is the "Right" auction client?  The right client is one that is goal oriented, decisive, willing to work to deadlines, communicative, tuned in, a partner, motivated and willing to let go and move on. Sound similar to a traditional sale?
To most Realtors the auction process is entirely new and rarely thought of as alternate and effective sales tool to get real … (0 comments)

real estate auctioneer: How do Seniors Sell their Homes today? At a Real Estate Auction - 09/03/09 01:41 PM
Many elderly Americans once planned to sell their homes to finance their retirement care. But with both home values and investment portfolios shrinking, Seniors are now struggling to cope.
As reported in the New York Times, US News and World Report, and elsewhere, many seniors facing the prospect of long term care are unable to pay for their care today owing to the depressed real estate market. These aren't the classically poor seniors who've traditionally turned to Medicaid under these circumstances. Rather, these are elderly whose primary homes are their largest store of wealth, and they've planned on selling that primary … (3 comments)
