real estate: Join Us Sunday July 17th 12-3pm... Open House!!! - 07/12/11 09:14 AM
What could be better than an immaculate 2 bedroom ranch-style unit? How about if that unit has 1 bath, central air and the laundry machines in the unit? Or if the living room/dining room offers a vaulted ceiling, skylight and ceiling fan with sliders to a deck offering more storage? And how about if I throw in a garage and your own private storage closet? Well...if this all sounds too good to be true, then visit me on Sunday, 7/17 from 12-3 to see this gem that is sited in a 6-unit complex in a quiet location, but convenient to everything! … (0 comments)

real estate: Should I Buy An Investment Property??? - 06/30/11 01:43 AM
                                               
I read this article on Twitter from Realtor Magazine Online and I am really finding this to be true in our market.Another great reason to buy an investment property! Have someone pay your mortgage and then sell when the market values increase. A win-win! Foreclosures Contribute to Rental Boom
Foreclosed home owners are contributing to a boom in the rental market. Nearly half of property managers recently surveyed - or 47 percent - say they're seeing an increase in applicants moving to rental units from foreclosed properties.
But foreclosed home owners may not find big deals in the rental … (2 comments)

real estate: If you are going to swing a hammer.......... - 05/18/11 07:30 AM
 

 
If you are going to swing a hammer...GET A PERMIT!!! 
 
I cannot tell you the heartache that I've had in the last dozen or so homes that I've sold where the seller, looking to expand their horizons (well maybe that's a bit lofty...they probably just wanted some extra living space) decided to finish a basement. And so they did. Exactly that. Just finish the basement. But, how do you know the town approves of it, and why should you care? There is no other way to know that you have a performed work that is legal without obtaining a permit from the … (2 comments)

real estate: What Happened To Your House Durning The Winter Storm?? - 01/20/11 01:39 AM
 
With all the crazy weather happening across the north east, I read this and have heard some terrible stories about dangerous walkways and driveways. Worst off, I have heard about some serious water damage to homes currently on the market.
Freezing Rain.  4 Feet of Snow.  Hail the size of golf balls.  With this trifecta of winter weather conditions, I have been driving slowly, dodging 4 foot icicles when showing houses and aappreciating the sand that the sellers have left out for me to use on their slippery walk ways.  However, one thing that I didn't think so much of, but have heard … (3 comments)

real estate: Down Payment for Purchase - 12/21/10 04:19 AM
 
                                                                 
 
"While many buyers have taken advantage of low down payment FHA- backed loans, REALTORS in Regions such as, Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island & Connecticut, reported that a majority of buyers, roughly 49%, put down more then 6% for their purchase". *
                                                             
 * This information is from The National Association Of Realtors-It is good to see in Connecticut, about half of the buyers put down more than 6%!!

real estate: 11 Reasons to List During the Holidays - 12/08/10 07:17 AM
 
 
I received this from my coach at The Mike Ferry Organization last year and I loved to share it with my sellers...even my buyers can get a great "feel" for the flow of business during the holiday season and end of year:
                            
                                                              
 
                                                     11 Reasons to List During the Holidays  
 1.People who look for a home during the Holidays are more serious buyers!  
 2.Serious buyers have fewer houses to choose from during the Holidays and less competition means more money for you!  
 3.Since the supply of listings will dramatically increase in January, there … (0 comments)

real estate: Here's a riddle for you.... - 11/29/10 03:48 AM
 
 
Q: How can a home buyer go through the entire home-purchase process: make a satisfactory offer; have a satisfactory inspection; receive a motgage committment and attend a closing, but not wind up with a home?
 
A: By not knowing that there are closing costs that are due... at the closing.
 
To prevent all of the work and none of the payoff, as well as having a furious client, it is so important to tell your clients what to expect from the process... beginning to end...
 
The following is a list of cost that I found on … (0 comments)

real estate: Very Important Condo Information.. Pass it on! - 11/17/10 06:07 AM
         
                                            
 
 
           VERY IMPORTANT CONDO INFO   I wanted to give you some information regarding the condo market that will definitely affect us all next year.  As of Dec 7,2010 many of the condos that you have been used to being able to get 3.5% down payments, with 50% owner occupancy ratios and a little lee way on the appraisals and credit will be expiring.  They MUST get their FHA certification.
           NOW.....Here is the situation.....All FHA approved condos prior to 1/1/2000 will NOT be eligible for recertification.  They will have to go through the full approval … (0 comments)

real estate: My Favorite Time Of The Year - 11/12/10 03:53 AM
 
                                                                  
 
Oftentimes throughout the year I declare, "This is my favorite time of year!"  But seriously, this has to be about my favorite... Not because of the weather or any sporting or holiday event...it's because we send out Thanksgiving cards to our clients and as I glance over at my client's names, I so vividly remember my time with them.  In every case, my memories are so fond, or profoundly funny, or inane.  I just can't help but laugh (like the husband and wife who got in a heated discussion with her husband over the difference between a fox and a coyote.  In … (2 comments)

real estate: Can A Real Estate Agent Be A Part Time Agent?? - 11/09/10 07:17 AM
 
                                                                     
I just read one of the most startling articles that I have read in a long time! 77% of agents treat real estate as a part time job.  Taking your fiduciary duties of care, obedience, accountability, loyalty and disclosure to your client as a hobby, or something that you do when you have the time for it is shocking!!
One of the first questions that you should ask any agent that you are going to hire is, time "Is this your full time occupation?" Can you imagine if your surgeon was moonlighting as a bartender? How about if your lawyer, working … (10 comments)

real estate: What Can Your Client Really Afford? - 11/05/10 08:59 AM
  
I love meeting new people! Especially when they want to buy a home from me.  It's hard when you meet with someone and they are eager to get out and start looking at homes only to have me slow them down to make sure we have everything in order. 
                                                         
 
 Probably the most important thing I can do with and for my client is ask 'what can you afford monthly' ? This is WAY different then what the mortgage broker told them they can afford to purchase.  Most people speak to a mortgage broker who provides them … (1 comments)
