The 2017 spring housing market is officially underway and cranking with fervor. Since we work with home buyers all day, every day, we know what they’re looking for and what they want, and they’re prepared to make a strong offer for your house - if they think it’s worth it!

madison wi: Loan modification! Helping? Hurting? - 09/27/11 10:18 AM
The government, in its attempt to help distressed home owners has set up a program with funding, to encourage banks to modify home loans of people who are in distress.

Despite the government’s best intentions, the banks, are not helping.   Possibly because of  being overwhelmed or because of  poor  staff, training, they are taking way too long to process.   And then so often they are rejecting the application or offering a trial period, then rejecting the package. 

Real Estate Guy has hears many times of instances where a loan modification, has ended, and often resulting in a major penalty … (0 comments)

madison wi: Spring housing market in Madison Wi? - 04/05/11 04:52 PM
It appears that the housing market in Madison Wi is heating up.
So say reports from the field.  Open houses are getting more traffic, and even some offers.  Realtor showings, are up too.   This is a really good bell weather as home buyers only call a Realtor when they are serious.
 
We are hearing of multiple offers on some homes.  And we are hearing the word profit and profit share banded around the office for the first time in long time.
So we know the market activity is here. 
Spring market is a good thing.   Very reassuring, … (1 comments)

I meet some great clients who are happy with me.  So when I commissioned a video for RealEstateGuy I asked a few clients to “Act”  and wonderful they were.  … (5 comments)
