stormlake: 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)

stormlake: 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)

stormlake: How to Price a Home to Sell and Avoid Over Priced Properties - 01/27/14 12:55 AM
How do we handle the concern a seller has that the sales range our CMA and Realtor Property Resource report (RPR) is too low. 
 
Pricing homes is difficult, where we recommend a seller lists a home is not our opinion of the worth of the property, it is the current market's valuation of the property. It is a scientific analysis that is produced by a CMA and an REALTOR Property Resource report, we stay as close to our local appraisers valuations and adjustments as possible. We are usually within $2,000 of the final bank appraisal amount. 
Our track record helps, … (0 comments)

stormlake: Tiny Home Information - 09/16/13 02:56 AM
I am interested in learning more about the Tiny Home movement, I have been to many websites and would like to connect with other REALTORS who have experience with these homes. The homes are under 800 sq ft, our area has an extremely critical shortage of rental housing, accessible housing, elderly housing, and first time homes. 
Does anyone know of or have experience with any companies that build tiny quality modulars that are affordable? I have researched the Katrina Cottages and like the idea but don't like many of the plans. I would be very interested in an open floor plan … (0 comments)

stormlake: What I would love to have in a website - check out the AR Contest - 05/13/13 04:23 AM
I have had several websites over the last 8 years, homes.com, point 2, and one I built myself on Homestead. All are expensive, take a lot of time and for the most part other than the one I built myself they all look cookie cutter. I was very concerned about the "Ownership of my material" on Homes.com, and copyright problems. 
Having said that, I would love to have a website that is internet and mobile friendly, easy to update, one that works like my Ipad with apps - so much easier to navigate than the Microsoft based systems, I would like … (1 comments)

stormlake: Houston We Have A Problem - Consensual Dual Agency in Iowa - 04/11/13 01:11 AM
Weaver Realtors Broker here, struggling to educate the public on the importance of representation in a real estate transaction. Here in Iowa, Consensual Dual Agency is legal, alive and thriving. However, it is doing so at the expense of fairly and honestly representing clients. In a consensual dual agency transaction where one agent represents both the buyer and the seller, who exactly is the agent representing? The agent cannot give either side preference, so the agent cannot make any recommendations as to how to counter, what to offer (doing a cma for Buyer?), how to negotiate, ..... Who do you best represent if … (5 comments)

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?
