The entire plans of buying a house should start way ahead before you actually buy a house. Acquiring a house of your own is a serious thing. This is the reason why you have to make sure you are able to protect your investment and not lose it to foreclosure. Unluckily, more homeowners are now faci...

Buying takes skill. It's a lot like extreme couponing. You get your ducks in a row and wait for that perfect sale so everything falls into place. But what if you don't have the time? It all depends on what you want, where you want it and how much you are willing to pay for it. Here are some vital...

    Brokers Are Often Broke!   For many years, there has been increasing pressure for real estate brokers to reduce their fees, enhance the technology and agent services they provide, and provide increased “splits” with their sales force. All fine ideas, if you are an agent. But, from the broker’...

Could Anyone Use A Buyer?   She’s a REALTOR®, just like me! Look at the smile on her face! She just held an Open House! Did she sell the home in which she was sitting? Probably not. But, did she get some leads? Yes!  Did she come face-to-face with potential buyers? Yes! Did she get their contact...

Glock 22C (Ported) .40 Caliber Pistol Pretty Bunny Ears!     When I’m showing rural properties, I choose to carry my weapon in the open, just as a deterrent. It works great! Well, I guess it does. You can’t prove a negative,… but, I have never had any problems while carrying the weapon.   I alwa...

  The Dreaded Open House I love Open Houses! I know that makes me brain dead, because so many in our industry disagree with me. But, you know what? I'm sitting in one as I write this blog post, and I'm having to get up and answer the door; show the home; then sit back down; resume my blog; and th...

 Seismic Shift     Large earthquakes occur when tectonic plates, normally pretty stable, suddenly “shift.” Depending on their location, the damage can be immense. Gary Keller, in his great book “Shift,” several years before our current real estate turmoil, wrote that markets tend to “shift,” and ...

      For $ale By Owner               Myth:  Most  REALTORS®  Call FSBOs, And Ask For Their Business.   Au contrair… Most REALTORS®  (falsely) assume that all of their competitors are calling the FSBOs, but, in fact, few of us do that. Don’t get me wrong: the best of us do it as part of our busin...

REALTORS® Have Friends, Too!       Image courtesy of Lumaxart   My friends deserve the best. They deserve me.

Please Contact A CDPE A few days ago, I received a call from a person, asking to speak with me about listng their home.

About 90 miles to the southeast of Tucson is a wonderful little town called Bisbee, Arizona. The area was discovered in 1877 by a reconnaissance detail on the search for Apaches in the Mule Mountains.  A tracker with the detail noticed a lot of mineralization in the area - copper, silver and lead...

Sorta Like My Smart Phone My smart phone is great! When I boot it up, it makes this cool sound, sort of like "DRRROIDDDDD," but with a Japanese accent, much like Godzilla. There's a real computer inside, that, like its larger cousins, lets me down every now and again, but, hey... No one ever pro...

(The Above Image Is NOT Me!) If you are in real estate: GET A LAPTOP. Desktops are often more powerful, but they are anchored on your trusty desk: not very portable. And, what if you have two desks... one at your home, and one at your office? Atop them are two terrific computers, probably. This ...

All my life, I've known about momentum. Usually, momentum is most obvious in sports, where the term, "Big Mo," on your side, means that momentum is building. I normally have "Big Mo" on my side. Blogging is kinda fun, and I usually post (somewhere) at least once a day. But, you know, there are lo...

I confess to taking the easy way out, on my last blog post. I posted on Mother's Day, about Mothers. I could have written just about anything, and lots of folks would have said, "Ohhhh... isn't that touching?" Well, since then, I've had an operation (that I survived), my puppy, "Hercules, The Imm...

Since everyone has a mother, does that devalue the proposition of "motherhood?" Not at all. I love Mothers. I have one. My wife is a Mother. my daughter is a Mother. My sisters are Mothers. Most REALTORS® in my office are Mothers. Most loan officers I deal with are Mothers. Most title and escrow ...
