Last year was a bizarre year for Roanoke, VA real estate.  2015 might be the year that Roanoke Virginia Short Sales come back.    2014 saw a dip in home values in Roanoke Virginia, which means that many struggling home owners could find themselves under water.  Regardless of this, I had a strong ...

How do you pick your home inspector in Roanoke VA?  Many people use the inspector that the REALTOR suggests.  Sometimes this is good and sometimes it isn't.  I have heard various different descriptions of home inspectors over the years but the one that sticks in my mind more than any is, "I use h...

Hello again AR nation.  Just another week, and another learning experience.  I'm currently working with a client to get them into their new home.  I love the whole experience of doing this.  However, it seems every home I sell brings a new set of hurdles to overcome. A little back story...We sign...

I've struggled for quite a while before writing this blog. Honestly, I'm just not too sure how it will come out, so I'll just start writing, and see what happens. I recently changed brokers, and I know it happens every day. I was just not expecting the reaction that I have received from my former...

On Thursday, I ratafied another contract. Now, I will gladly admit, that I don't do a ton of business. As many of you know, I also work a "day job" for insurance purposes. I have been a realtor for about a year now, so I guess I'm still considered "new" to the field, but I still love the process,...

This has been a wild and crazy year for Roanoke Virginia Real Estate.  2011 might well be the year of the Roanoke Virginia Short Sale or Roanoke Virginia Foreclosure Sale.  It seems that most of the houses sold this year in Roanoke are either Short Sales or Foreclosed Homes.  Our team is actually...

Ok. Let me preface this by saying thank you to everyone involved in this process from the selling agent, to the title company, to my lending officer, and most of all to my client. I am currently in what seems like has been an endless delay to close a HUD property. The house is a very good purchas...

It amazes me how many people want to buy a house and don't pay particular attention to the financing part of the equation.  You would think that if a buyer trusted a real estate agent to represent them in some of their largest financial decisions of their life, they might heed their advice when i...

When working a Roanoke area short sale, you would think that life is made simple when you have the same bank working on the short sale on both the 1st and 2nd mortgage.....but you would be WRONG! This Roanoke Virginia Short Sale has had a contract on it since September 6, 2010.  It has been sched...

I know it's been a while since I've last updated the AR family.  First off, I'm still loving the Droid, and still researching how to make an ap of my own.  Not a big computer geek, so some of the software language gets a little lost in translation with me.  Thanks to everyone who is sharing their...
