real estate information: Attention REO/Foreclosure Listing Agents... Thought You'd Heard it All? Maybe Not! - 01/26/11 07:53 AM
Believe me when I say, being REO/Foreclosure agents, we've seen and heard of a whole lot of unusual and devious practices by people trying to manipulate our extremely burdened and flawed 'Distressed Property Real Estate Market.' 
But the 'devious of mind' individuals continue to amaze!
Here's a new one!
Our team leader got a call today from a fellow agent informing us that they had a rough time finding our contact information in order to inquire about one of our REO property listings. (Strange... it's on all of our signs in huge numbers!)
The agent went on to say that our … (5 comments)

real estate information: 15 Things NOT to Do If You're Buying a Home! - 01/26/11 05:44 AM
Our team had a transaction (on the listing side) recently when the buyer, only a week before the closing was scheduled, decided to give her employer '2 weeks notice' ... since "she was planning to move anyway!"  Of course this action delivered a 'death blow' to that particular transaction.
After having that unfortunate experience, I thought that assembling a list of things that a homebuyer should NOT do before closing on a new home purchase  might be helpful to others.

(This story is best enjoyed if you start the video at the bottom of the post before you start reading!)
Wow... what an unusual Monday! 
The day began... as all Mondays do... with lots of coffee, a shake off of the "weekend attitude", and a "kick it into gear" for a great week ahead.
My arrival at the office brought a few surprises, but nothing that could not be considered par for the course of doing business in a busy Real Estate office.... especially in this challenging Real Estate Market!

real estate information: HERE THEY COME.... BUYERS ARE LEAPING OFF THE FENCE! - 05/02/09 09:09 AM
The National Association of Realtors statistics are reporting that home sales jumped 5.1% nationwide for March 2009. That's the largest increase since December 2003!
