storm lake ia homes for sale: 23 Approved Buyers - WHERE'S the HOUSES???? - 03/30/16 02:59 AM
Wow, I have never had so many qualified buyers in my 11 years of being a REALTOR. It is a great problem to have, but it is still a problem.
The inventory in the Storm Lake IA area is very low, surrounding towns are the same - Alta, Aurelia, Newell, Cherokee. Our brokerage Weaver Realtors, is getting the word out to sellers in a number of ways that now is the time to sell.
Any ideas on how you get people thinking about selling in a fast seller market?  Beyond the usual methods? Somehow I need to convey that it is in the … (0 comments)

storm lake ia homes for sale: Mr/Ms Banker your recommendations look like CONFLICT OF INTEREST TO ME - 11/18/13 02:16 AM
I am located in a small northwest Iowa town, Storm Lake to be exact. It is very seldom that we have a Buyer who does not ask the Seller to pay the Buyer's closing costs. Closing costs in this area are usually around 3% of the purchase price. 
Our inventory is very low and many times the price offered is not what actually ends getting an offer accepted, it is the combination of price AND terms. In a negotiation or multiple offer situation asking the Seller to pay the Buyer's closing costs can be very costly - in more than a … (1 comments)

storm lake ia homes for sale: HUD property ReConveyed Back to Bank - What Happens Now - 06/15/11 09:16 AM
I listed a HUD foreclosure, got an accepted offer on the property, did a LOT of work. Developed a Buyer, who spent a GOOD amount of money on title opinion (we're an abstract state) and an abstract update. The title opinion showed a number of problems on the abstract, liens, judgements, etc.
Not the first time I have seen this stuff, the stuff is usually cleaned up and then closed. BUT, not this time. The property was sent back to the bank so they could clean up the problems. The HUD representative called me and told me the property was reconveyed … (0 comments)

storm lake ia homes for sale: Storm Lake IA Homes For Sale - Market Down 29.4% are you seeing same type of numbers? - 06/15/11 09:04 AM
Our market was down 29.4 percent in the month of May, part of that drop is attributed to the government incentive offered last year. But, even without the incentive our market has been trending lower. What are you seeing in your markets, especially Iowa real estate markets. From the state reports it looks pretty slow overall. I am interested in seeing if there is anything in common in the areas that are coming back from this down turn. The government is stating we are still declining, I know we are a little behind here in rural Iowa but, do you think … (0 comments)

storm lake ia homes for sale: Storm Lake IA Homes For Sale - Bringing on new agents, how to make sure training is done? - 06/15/11 08:56 AM
I will be bringing on several new realtors later this year, I am concerned about training. Most of the local brokerages do very little training, we do extensive training. We also think existing agents should go through refresher training, forms, laws etc change frequently in our business.
But realtors are independent contractors, how do other brokers make sure agents are understanding and applying training? Other than finding out after a problem has developed? If you have an agent who doesn't want to go through the training can you make it a term of their contract?

Buena Vista County recently came under the mandate to have septic systems inspected and brough up to code in a sale. If you have an acreage or are thinking of buying one please follow up on this  information http://ipoa.iarcdn.com/2010/10/iowas-septic-system-inspection-program/

storm lake ia homes for sale: Less is More Interior Design Coming Into It's Own Even in Storm Lake Iowa - 06/25/10 06:27 AM
According to Troy Beasley, of Beasley & Henley Interior Design in Winter Park, Fla. "People want the less cluttered look people see in magazines." as reported in by Jean Patteson in RISMEDIA June 25th, 2010. Even in rural Storm Lake Iowa we are seeing this reducing trend, people have always had problems seeing their things or themselves in someones space if the space wasn't pared down. As a REALTOR I usually recommend sellers remove at least 30% of their things and sometimes 50% depending on the home. Homes are much easier to sell if they are sparsely furnished and staged prior … (2 comments)

Average income across the nation for home buyers is between $67,700 and $79,500
Average miles between new and old home - all under 15, between 10 and 13 miles. That makes a lot of sense in how we should market.
