coldwell banker residential brokerage: These are the Biggest Mistakes Home Sellers Make! - 01/09/20 06:39 AM
These are the Biggest Home Seller Mistakes Revealed
 
1. Overpriced Home
Nothing shocking here. This was far and away the most common mistake sellers make that prevent them from selling their home.
If you overprice your home there is a pretty good chance no one is going to want to buy it. Real estate agents do not set the real estate market. A great real estate agent will suggest a price at which to list your home based on comparable homes that have already sold in the market. Overpricing a home to 'see if you can get someone to bite' is not a strategy … (0 comments)

Well will this really be a New Year for you?
Will you change the way you go about your business? 
Or will you continue to do business the 
same way you have in the past.
The market has changed 
and if you do not change with it 
you will be left behind.
If you are changing, than 
work with those changes to bring 
your business into the year 2018 with a bang!!
Some of the things I am 
changing is to advertise more to 
buyers instead of just advertising listings. 
I believe that if you are just 
advertising your listings than you 
are just looking for that 
one buyer who wants to buy 
your house that you advertised.

coldwell banker residential brokerage: Are thier options for your buyer if you are selling your VACANT LAND? - 01/17/15 06:39 AM
 Are their options for your buyer if you are
selling your VACANT LAND?
There are a few financing options for someone looking to buy your VACANT LAND.
First there is always the cash option in today's economy that is very likely to be the only one available, and most builders will pay cash.
Second is the OWNER FINANCING OPTION. This is sometimes a good option and can get you more money in your pocket but you may also have to repossess the property,
which can be messy to say the least.
Third option is a LAND to CONSTRUCTION … (0 comments)

Worried Ahout paying tax
when you sell your home in a short sale?

There is a little know loophole that
may alow you to avoid paying the tax if you

Cancelled debt is not included in income
to the extent you were insolvent.
Consult your tax expect to see if you qualify for it!!!

4 Critical Home Fixes To Do Before Mom
and Dad Move In With You  
When an older relative decides to join your household, these four projects belong on the top of your to-do list:
1. In the bathroom, have a carpenter install safety rails in the tub and put up a grab bar disguised as a towel rack. Neglect to do this and your mom will use the towel or toilet paper racks to steady herself as she moves around the bathroom. When this causes the racks to give way, you’ll have to repair the drywall. Add a rubber bathmat … (2 comments)

We all use this term "Pre-Approved" But some Mortgage people use it with out actually doing the work that should go into a "Pre-Approval"
Read Below to get a good insite into this!!!
What's the most over-used term in the land of real estate sales??
PRE-APPROVED!!!
What's the term most used by home buyers in real estate transactions?
I UNDERSTAND!!!
Shucks.  If a home buyer can be Pre-Approved, why not issue a LOAN COMMITTMENT letter???
That would at least identify the price of the house, interest rate and length of the commitment.
