green county wisconsin: The Civil War in Brodhead Wisconsin - 04/28/09 06:51 AM

Last night I was treated to a very informative talk about the Civil War as a presentation of the Brodhead's Historical Society. Many times we think we have to travel long distance to see or hear great programs, when in fact much is happening right in our back yard. What does your community have to offer? It is the stuff your clients love to know when you take them on showings.

Here are some of the many items that were on display. It is said "that if we don't understand history it will be repeated", and this could be … (1 comments)

green county wisconsin: Are you spending too much time HERE! - 04/23/09 06:48 AM
 
Have you spent too much time sitting in your office chair? The most important thing to remember to avoid chair-related back problems is that your chair sh­ares the burden of supporting your body weight with your back. The more of that load you give the chair, the less work your back has to do. In a way, you should think of chairs as having a specific fit. Goldilocks was onto something when she tried out all of the three bears' chairs until she found the perfect one. Like a pair of shoes that are too small for your feet will … (9 comments)

green county wisconsin: Spring is here the Robins have returned to Southeran Wisconsin - 04/01/09 05:36 AM

You can tell when spring has arrived.  When the Robins are seen all about. With spring here, so to is the heating up of the real estate market. In Green county we have seen the gloom and dismal winter market give way to the guarded optimism for a great second quarter in home sales. The supply of value priced homes is good and the tax incentives coupled with low intrest rates has created a buy now or get left out. If you are interested in living in the land of awesome Robins, contact me Scott Larson at 608-214-9844 or check … (3 comments)

green county wisconsin: Why should I use a realtor? - 03/24/09 05:04 AM

 
Why should we use a Realtor?
We know there are many reasons to use a Realtor. Sometimes we need to be reminded of the facts
•  Nationwide only 2% of homes are sold by homeowners. 98% are sold by Realtors. we need to ask our clients do they want a 2% chance of selling their home?
 
•  Average home sold by a homeowner is sold for 21% less than a Realtor would have sold it for. If your client is considering this, are they really saving the commission??
 
I hope you are haveing a great year, … (0 comments)

green county wisconsin: Is the Housing market Dead or playing Opossum? - 03/19/09 02:47 AM

 
 
Yesterday I was walking down a beautiful township road and I spotted this fellow. Was he dead or playing opossum?  This made me think about the real estate market and all the conflicting news that swirls through the media’s talking heads. Is the housing market dead or playing opossum? I believe that there are pockets of truth around our nation when it comes to over building and over speculation in real estate.
In our market we have seen our share of repossessions and house price value drops.  I believe that fear is holding back a real estate boom … (0 comments)

green county wisconsin: It's dangerous selling realestate in Monroe Wisconsin! - 03/10/09 04:10 AM

Look what we Realtors have to deal with in Monroe WI. As I was traveling to Hasse Surveying company in rural Monroe on Monday and I was attacked by a Tinosarus. Fortunately I was passing by after lunch and this man- eater was just chilling out by an old gravel quarry at the intersection of Abley and Iliff road. So if you find yourself in the fertile land of Green county beware, you just never know!

green county wisconsin: Do you highlight all the features of your property? - 02/26/09 06:16 AM

Do you highlight all the features of your property? This is a photo of the front of my home. I became the owner of water front property, well for a day as the winter snows melted. But this event reminded me that we need to look at our properties with a fresh look. Sometimes we miss or take for granted some special features our property has to offer a prospective client. It may be built-in cabinets in a garage, a handy 1st floor laundry with a fold-out ironing board, or even that the kitchen island has wheels on it so … (2 comments)

green county wisconsin: You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. - 02/13/09 03:56 AM
 
I don't know where this came from or who wrote it to give proper credit, but it's powerful! I firmly believe that if you put the money into the hands of those who invent, inspire, and who have an inexhaustible spirit this country will get back on it's feet and yes we Realtors will be a part of that movement
 
You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person received without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does … (0 comments)

green county wisconsin: It's a bird, It's a plane, No It's SUPER Marketer - 02/11/09 04:30 AM
It's a bird , It's a plane, It's a SUPER-marketing in a big way. In these tough times now is not the time to pull in and hunker down, but to expand and grow. A time to use your strengths and get out there and show your marketplace why you should be there agent. When I saw this blimp fly over my office it reminded me of that fact. We need to be creative, inovative, and diligent. I strongly beleive that if we focus on customer service we will succeed 2009 and beyond. So pull out all the stops and be … (2 comments)

green county wisconsin: This may help Buyers get back out Looking - 02/06/09 04:25 AM
Here is a repost that was sent to me from one of my local bankers. Take a look
 
 
This could help get the buyers back out looking and buying.
Last night, the Senate added a significant homebuyer tax credit to the housing stimulus plan.  Here are the key elements of the credit:
 *  The tax credit is for the amount of $15,000 or 10% of the purchase price (whichever is less), with the option to utilize all in one year or spread out over two years.  The credit does not have to be paid back.
 *  The tax credit … (1 comments)

green county wisconsin: There's something cheesey going on in Monroe Wisconsin - 02/03/09 09:34 AM
I have lived in Green County most of my life and I have enjoyed the abundance of cheeses made from our many fine cheese-makers. When I give tours to clients, one of their favorite places to stop is a cheese factory. We can take for granted the unique industries that our community, our housing market has to offer. What does your market have that would make it a great place to live? For me and Green County it's the cheese. If you are in my area, stop by one of these fine factories and say "cheese!"

green county wisconsin: Do you have Buyers that tell you, "I'm going to wait" Share this! - 01/28/09 04:25 AM
Example, take a home that is priced at $100,000 and the interest rates are at 5% for a 30 year loan. The monthly payment would be $536.82.
Now let's say they wait and the housing market drops another 10%. (good) The home is now $90,000, but the interest rate go up to 6%( bad). The new monthly payments are now $540 per month.
With the volatile market that we live in, waiting isn't always the best option. Why pay more when you can start making your dream of home ownership a reality today while interest rate are historically low and homes … (2 comments)
