real estate sales: What's Taking Place in Your Real Estate Market? - 01/24/09 02:43 PM
I am curious if there is any quality signs in anyone's real estate market.  Increase in prices would be a major plus.  Are you seeing any trends?  I know in many markets sales are increasing, but the average price is still declining.  That means the sales are lead by distressed properties.  In Atlanta both price and sales are still in decline.  I posted a few  this week about the Atlanta real estate market that discussed our trends.  I also noticed in some real estate markets there is a trend that listings are increasing daily.  January is an early time to go … (20 comments)

real estate sales: Do You Remember the Numbers? You Should! - 01/16/09 11:32 AM
Do you remember when the National Association of Realtors NAR - project the annual numbers of sales of resale homes?  You should.  It will give you a perspective into the state of things to come.  During the peak in the market it was not unusual for the NAR numbers to float between a projected 5-6 million sales of resale homes per annum.  In 2008, it moved into the high 4 millions, and was recently revised.

real estate sales: Real Estate Markets Post Elections - 12/04/08 01:10 AM
I was curious how all the real estate markets have been doing since the elections.  I want to seperate hype from fact.  This is not a political question, but a real estate volume of business question.  Where are the buyers?  Are agents that were doing bus tours of forclosed homes still doing so?  I have personally noticed that inquiries have all but ceased.  Some of this is seasonal and not so abnormal for this time of year, but I also feel the slower buyer traffic is due to the gyrations of the stock market, the fear of layoffs etc.  This prolonged … (27 comments)

real estate sales: Has Your Market Slowed to A Crawl or Died? - 10/04/08 06:27 PM
I noticed in the last few weeks Internet leads in real estate in several markets has slowed to a crawl.  Actually it seems like it has died!  I was wondering if the market is spooked, no pun intended for the upcoming Halloween!  Each time the government announced a bailout, a bank failure or the "Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac Fix"....buyers became more scarce.  I really think Congress has spooked the market along wiht the media in recent months.  I know it isn't just me.  I am hearing this from full time agents, brokers, inspectors, builders, closing attorneys, and mortgage professionals.  The … (178 comments)

real estate sales: Years on Market Vs. Days on Market! No Excuses! - 06/21/08 04:52 AM
I just did a CMA presentation this morning for a potential home seller in the Atlanta area.  Nothing has sold in the subdivision since last October.  Even a recent agents mailing into the subdivision, had "0" Recent Sales on the post card.  Well one of the recent comps I was surprised had finally sold after 1117 Days on Market!  Wow!  Why not 3 years?  Or Years On Market YOM!  Think of all the numbers we could save!  I was very familiar with the property, and had shown it many times a few years back.  The interesting thing was... nothing wrong with the home.  No structural … (32 comments)

real estate sales: Inflation and the Impact on Real Estate. - 06/15/08 04:15 PM
Inflation is a measurable increase in the costs of goods and services.  Inflation is something that as ordinary citizens we deal with everyday.  High costs at the the gas pumps, $4 a gallon for milk, higher prices at restaurants, food, produce, transportation...the list goes on.  It is sticker shock!  So how does it impact our business?  First of all, buyers take a holiday, and then real estate sales cool for many reasons.  
The first thing that happens wiht inflation is that consumers go into price shock, and their confidence on how things are going to turn out at the end of the … (94 comments)

real estate sales: Have Year to Date Sales Increased in Your Area? - 05/18/08 02:45 AM
I need to ask and cut through all the fluff stuff in real estate.  Just the facts as Jack Webb used to say... In your area have real estate sales exceeded the same time period last year?  Are sales rising or falling?  List price sales price ratios what are they? Listing inventory and days on market are they improving or increasing?  What sales trends are you seeing?  Starter homes, luxury homes etc...?  What is selling and what is not?  I would love to  know the reality of this market,  Lets cut to the chase, mortgage rates are incredible, prices are down, sellers are negotiating … (10 comments)

real estate sales: Lofts Are Not Bedrooms! - 10/03/07 04:08 PM
I guess of all the pet peeves I have in real estate is the counting of a loft as a bedroom upstairs!  Over the years in real estate I cannot count the times that I showed a home that billed itself as a 4 bedroom 2 and a half home.  When you go upstairs there is invariably a loft that the agent is billing as the 4th bedroom.  It isn't!  In fact it never will be!  Let's dispel the myth that a loft could even be considered as a 4th bedroom.  The reason is simple...there is no privacy!  The listing agent … (20 comments)

real estate sales: I Need a Really Good Real Estate Agent  | I Must Sell My Home or Else… | Do You Qualify? - 09/23/07 02:34 PM
The title above is not so far fetched these days.  A lot of homeowners are really up against different types of pressure and they need real help yesterday!  Home sellers may have different needs, but they share one thing in common, they must get results!  The needs of one seller to another may vary from job loss, terminal illness, death of a spouse, financial setbacks, divorce, relocation away from the area, an impending adjustment on a mortgage that the seller can no longer afford to pay, or just some other dire need.  What the seller is requesting is a tall order.  … (12 comments)

real estate sales: Hot Hot Hot! How do you do sell real estate in the summer heat? - 08/07/07 08:46 AM
Today in Alpharetta, I noticed the outside temperature in my car was 101 degrees!  That is hot in my books.  Usually I have a lot more buyers, and in this weather it would be almost impossible to keep cool going into vacant homes, in and out of air-conditioning, dealing with kids, hydration, and how to dress to stay cool!   This is real life in the trenches in real estate,  In the Atlanta area, the weather channel reported today, no let up for the foreseeable future!  How do you deal with the heat?  This would be a great place to share with … (30 comments)

real estate sales: Selling a Home and Moving! | Real Estate Agent Empathy for Home Sellers - 08/06/07 12:17 PM
All too often in real estate it is too easy to focus on the deal, and overlook all the sellers is go through when their home is under contract and they are starting to move out!  Having just contracted our home for sale, we are getting taste of what the homeowners we work with to make our living go through every day!  It is a stressful and daunting time not to be envied! There are boxes, and packing tapes, storage sheds, contract deadlines, work, rental truck, tape guns, packing paper, paint touch ups, generals disarray and chaos.  It is a time … (31 comments)

real estate sales: Listing Inventories are up. Sales are off slightly. - 03/02/07 12:17 AM
With listing inventories up in most real estate market, it is strange to many sellers and agents alike that they don't want to pay attention to the numbers.  Numbers, and statistics allow us to make a demostration that can explain our current market, and possibly future trends. It is easier to put one's head in the sand, and pretend it is still 2005. Statistics and numbers may be boring but they paint a picture of the current real estate market and times ahead.  They are not threatening. I think the reason that many persons dislike statistics is like the two jokes.  … (4 comments)
