storm lake ia: What is it like being a REALTOR - 11/03/15 06:07 AM
TWO more accepted offers today!!!! But, it is not always like that. Sometimes, you get right to the closing table and things go wrong or you just can't seem to find the right property for a buyer especially in our rural area.
One thing about real estate it is never dull, it is about helping people. Some days are great, some good, some fair, some poor and some you are holding on by your fingernails. A good Realtor has to love helping people, be a super woman/man of organization, be connected on may levels, keep abreast of the changes in the market- … (3 comments)

storm lake ia: Avian Flu and Real Estate in Iowa and Minnesota - 06/05/15 04:22 AM
Seems like selling real estate and the Avian Flu couldn't be further from each other. But, there's a link and it is not a good one. My brokerage is in the middle of the avian flu oubreak in Iowa. We are beginning to feel the hurt from people being laid off at the plants, truck drivers and farm workers are experiencing reduced hours or are being laid off.
Three weeks ago we lost a sale becaause the buyer was a truck driver, he had just had his hours drastically reduced, he could not qualify for his loan. We are also seeing people who … (2 comments)

storm lake ia: ATTENTION! Your Rent 2 Own.com SCAM ALERT! - 03/27/15 01:43 AM
Your Rent 2 Own .com - Please go check this site, your listings are probably on it and misrepresented as as Rent to Own. This is my second run in with this company. They somehow take the mls listings, put them on their website and charge consumers to get informationa about properties that they say are rent to own. To me this is absolutely misrepresentation and should be investigated. Please check their site for your listings, let me know if anyone has had any dealings with this company. If you want your properties off, here is their phone number. From Your Rent 2 Own.com website:

Do you or does your brokerage practice Appointed Agency? I am located in Storm Lake IA, nw corner of Iowa, and our brokerage does practice Appointed Agency. I would like to hear from other agents and brokers who use this type of representation.

As the broker how do you work with your agents within this type of agency, for example how do you determine who the appointed agent is for each side of the transaction? 
I would like to … (1 comments)

storm lake ia: Storm Lake IA - Rental Properties at a Premium - 03/09/12 03:41 AM
If you live in Storm Lake, IA and you don't own your home you probably know the kind of shortage we have in rental properties. Our office Weaver Realtors receives between 20 and 25 calls, emails and texts a day from people in need of a rental property. The demand has pushed up the price on rentals and it is very difficult ot get anything for less that $500 a month, and most are between $550 and $650.
What kind of a home could you pay if you paid $550 a month for rent? Well with interest rates below 4.5% and a 30 … (0 comments)

storm lake ia: Storm Lake Iowa Addresses the Local Extreme Housing Need - 01/04/12 05:10 AM
We have several local developers in Storm Lake and Newell continuing to work on new home developments and subdivisions, we have a number of investors working on flips and rentals, and we have a number of big developers vieying for the opportunity to put up some mega properties to help ease the local rental housing needs. Unfortunately, it looks like all the big developers are planning to put up low income housing (we need good, clean, rental housing across the board) but with the need at the several hundred units level and going up, every new rental clean good rental is a welcome … (0 comments)

storm lake ia: Storm Lake IA Homes For Sale - Market and Weather Holding - 01/04/12 03:58 AM
It is January in NW Iowa, Storm Lake to be exact. So far this year we have had 2 snow falls, both slight compared to our usual massive accumulation. The good weather has helped keep the Storm Lake MLS active and Storm Lake homes  and surrounding area homes selling.  I just got back from the Storm Lake MLS new property tour and we had several new listings to go through, that makes me smile. We had a good year in 2011 and it looks promising for 2012. We are planning to bring on fulltime office staff and we have have a few more … (0 comments)

No pun intended! Our brokerage has had a good year with an increase in sales by 11% over 2010.  Part of the growth was and will continue to be the work we are doing with Blu Skyz Properties LLC (BPSLLC) in residential and commercial development in both Storm Lake and Newell Iowa.

storm lake ia: Hilarious Spell Check Blooper - 01/03/12 09:12 AM
Just posting a notice that my real estate office was going to be closed for the holiday and I absent mindedly hit replace when I misspelled the word inconvenience. It replaced it all right, but not with what I thought it would say.

storm lake ia: Storm Lake IA Investor and Property Manager - Blu Skyz Properties LLC and Weaver Realtors Growing Newell - 01/03/12 09:11 AM
Weaver Realtors and Blu Skyz Properties LLC are driving forces behind the recent growth and development of Newell, Iowa - a small town located east of Storm Lake, IA.  This town of less than 1000 people is prime for both commercial and residential development.
Storm Lake IA is very short of good, clean rental properties and this is how the push to grow Newell began. Newell has a lot of available properties that be purchased at low prices, BSP LLC recently purchased a large commercial building on the main street for $25,000. This building's street level is finished and includes, 2 handicap accessible bathrooms, … (0 comments)

storm lake ia: Storm Lake Iowa Lake Property Under Renovation - watch the video documentation - 11/09/11 08:24 AM
317 E Lakeshore Drive Storm Lake, IA is a massive structure, 3 stories that look out over a beautiful park and then onto the lake. It came into my life when an investor I work with told me they were talking to the owner and they wanted to buy the property. Their question to me, what is it worth, how much can I pay for it and afford to renovate it so it has a good positive cash flow?  My response, let's get in to see it and then I'll have a much better idea of the repairs and purchase price to see how it will cash flow. … (0 comments)

I found this site yesterday. WOW, there is a lady on the site - Lesa Snider who is amazing Lesa Elements 9 Tutorial.

But i have a subscription now. I think amyone who has photoshop has a great tool, but learning how to use it is difficult. … (0 comments)

storm lake ia: IDX - Need this in our area, how have you benefited from this technology, how did you get others onboard? - 04/07/11 03:59 AM
My brokerage is located in Storm Lake Iowa, we are a small rural area with 3 multiple listing services within 50 miles. Our areas overlap so a number of the brokerages belong to more than one multiple listing service, which results in multiple data entry, etc for each mls. In addition to the overlap at this point (to my knowledge) none of the mls groups participate in IDX within their membership or with other mls groups (I do have an IDX agreement with one other local broker).
I believe IDX is a huge benefit to all our customers, clients, agents and offices. IDX makes … (2 comments)

storm lake ia: 3 Days 3 Accepted Offers! - 03/16/11 11:30 AM
What a great way to end the dayin Storm Lake IA! I was about to leave the office and got a call - another accepted offer! So far this week I am 3 for 3. The Storm Lake IA homes market is down and struggling, a lot of foreclosures coming on.  I believe every market has a party that can benefit - in this market those who have saved their money, kept their credit safe and investors are benefiting. Low interest rates, some very good buys, and some great investor purchases.

A month and a half ago my main office computer malfunctioned. Yes, I back everything up, actually in 2 different ways, I have maintenance and tech plans on my equipment. I still had all my data, but what I didn't have was the software to use my data. Scared the you know what out of me. Storm Lake, Iowa is not a place where you want to have computer problems.After experiencing that and physically disconnecting and delivering my computer to the tech company (they wouldn't come to my office) in windy, snowing and icy weather; I thought - there has to be a better way.  … (1 comments)
