scott larson: How to handle low ball offers - 04/05/10 02:17 AM
 
In these challenging times of home selling don't let any buyer walk away without a valient effort to close the deal.
 
How????????????????
Negotiate! Keep the conversation alive with the buyer for as long as you can. Do not settle right away. Always maintain open communication about your limitations with your agent; he or she is there to help you get the best price possible for your home. Remember, if the offer is too low, always counter; don't walk away. Sometimes buyers simply want to test the waters.

scott larson: Happy Easter - 04/04/10 12:13 AM
Many people are wondering what Easter actually means, as the true meaning of Easter has been lost. What I can tell you is it isn’t about cute little fluffy chickens, nor does it have anything to do with Easter bunnies. It isn’t even about Easter eggs. Although an egg can represent ‘new life’ because new life hatches from the egg, and Jesus was resurrected on the third day – giving us new life in Him. But just like Christmas, the real meaning has been forgotten. For those of us that are Christians, we understand what Easter is all about. But for … (3 comments)

scott larson: Moving did you make a First Open Box? - 03/31/10 08:53 AM
 
 If your client has bought the home and are making plans to move, do they have a this box? A "first open" box with the things you’ll need most-toilet paper, soap, trash bags, scissors, hammer, screwdriver, pencils and paper, cups and plates, water, snacks, and toothpaste.
I bet there are more items you could suggest for this box, please share.

scott larson: Home Selling Tip "Painting" - 03/27/10 06:34 AM
 
Sales Tip Painting the Interior of your Home A Professional painters will probably charge you anywhere from $200 to $500 to paint each room depending on the area you live in, but with a little patience, you can paint the rooms yourself. 
Choose a soft color in a light brown tone (never white), and paint every room the same color. The painting will go faster if you paint the ceilings the same color, but ceilings really pop if they are a lighter color than the color of the walls. Lighter colors also make the ceilings appear higher. For a 10 … (11 comments)

scott larson: Bugged out in Wisconsin - 03/26/10 12:40 AM

 
Have you seen these little bugs at your house yet this year? Asian beetles, they look like Lady Bugs. Now that the temps are rising in Wisconsin these guys are coming out everywhere. If they land on you they can bite and if you crush them they stink. The best option is to suck them up in your vacuum. They are a nuisance and don't add to a homes appearance at showings. Any ideas of how to get rid of these unwelcome guests.

scott larson: Smells Great! Tastes even Better! - 03/25/10 10:44 AM
A cheap and tasty way to have people love your home during showings. Not a new idea but one overlooked. Keep a roll of store-bought refrigerated chocolate-chip cookie dough and bake five or six slices while you're double-checking the house. Put the baking sheet in the dishwasher and take the cookies with you. They get the aroma, and you get the cookies!

Winter's last Hurrah!! It snow at my home this past Friday night after enjoying a week of 50-60's. My son made two giant snowballs to see how long they would last. Today the grass is bare again and the two snowballs remain. Lets make it a contest, how long will the snowballs remain? I will post the winner and the date.

Don't put the shovels away yet, Wisconsin is to get 1-2 inches of snow tonight. This just after enjoying a week of temps in the 50-60's range. To some you may still say burrr. but in Wisconsin that's shorts weather.
Have a great weekend and enjoy March maddness to all you hoops fans.

scott larson: 2 Rules to Negotiate Real Estate - 03/19/10 01:28 AM
Here what I believe to be 2 rules to negotiate real estate. 1. You need to know what you want, be prepared, take your time, and do not be swayed by emotional games that some people will try to play. 2. Be prepared to take as well as to give, and, even though chances are against you getting the perfect deal, at least you can get a good deal that you can live with without remorse. Simple yet so true.

If you plan to buy a home in the near future, you should be researching the various components of homeowners insurance. Why? Because you’ll need to have a policy in place by the time you close on the house. In fact, your lender will require you to provide proof of insurance on closing day.
