Are Buyers Still Running The Show?

So yesterday I got two offers on two different listings.  One was 36,950 low and the other was 31,950 low.  While the market is still nothing to write home about I'm seeing consistent improvement all over the market and forecasts from The National Association Of Realtors that values are slowly but surely on the rise.

I think it's time we start preparing to re educate our buyers about the market conditions and enlighten them on the fact that they are no longer going to be able to steal…

I had a few coaching calls today and it seems the common denominator was frustration for my agents.  I too am experiencing frustration, I've had two deals fall through already this year, all the closings that were due to close in January have been delayed to February due to all kinds of crazy things, my assistant of years decided to leave and stay home full time.  I hired a new assistant and the first day she called in sick.  I've had some really strange and out of the ordinary listing…

A Business?

So many of us get into real estate thinking it will offer more time and money. I've seen it happen in many cases where you get one or the other, but often times not both. The key is treating it like a business.

I carry a lot of active listings, at any given time I have upwards of 40 active listings. I recently had a showing on one of them and called the agent for feedback. The agent said the folks liked it and it was in their top few favorites but were continuing to look at others and she would let me know if they had any further interest.

I am sorry if you've been trying to sign up for the upcoming Expired and FSBO course that we're offering and found our website not working.  Apparently it was hacked and has been dysfunctional for the last two days.  I've gotten several emails and calls from agents trying to sign up and wanted to send a quick post to let you know that due to this I have decided to extend the promotional price to this Friday the 4th.
