The next step after pre-qualifying your new buyer client is to begin the home search within their projected price range.  Obviously, the bigger the city you live in, the more options the buyer has for choosing their first home.  However, when you are in a smaller area (such as Altus & Altus AFB, ...

So, I have begun thinking it would be a good idea to dedicate a section to first-time home buyers here on my blog.  I know there are so many of you in my area of the country and it continues to grow in leads and bounds because of the Military members moving into Altus AFB. Before I begin showing ...

Today, let's talk BAH (Basic Allowance for Housing) pay and how it affects a mortgage payment for our Military families.  Many families (and even single people) find it a better deal for them to buy than for all their BAH to go toward living on base.  As a Realtor here in Altus, I am seeing more...

With the coming of the Fall season, comes new and exciting happenings in our local Real Estate market here in Altus, OK.  Even though home prices are still down slightly from last year, the interest rates are phenomenal and now is a wonderful time for those who are "on the fence" about buying to ...

About a month or so ago, I had this young married couple come in the office on my opportunity (floor) time and ask about listing there home in a few months from then (Oct/Nov).  I worked out a whole strategy with them, took all their contact info and gave them mine, and then nothing else from the...

Then, by chance, problems aris...

Every year here in Altus, we have a grand tradition that we call the Great Plains Stampede Rodeo.  It comes around the last week of August every year and is quite festive!  The kickoff to the rodeo is Longhorn stampede through the base and into town until they reach the rodeo arena.  They had thi...

Here in Oklahoma, we have now had almost 70 days of 100+ degree temperatures now.  It has been hot, dry, and miserable, to say the least.  I've also started to wonder if my buyers have not slowed their pace a bit to avoid getting out and looking in this weather.  Just an observation . . . I am ho...

DISCLAIMER:  The views are expressed in this blog are simply that, MY views (and factual information from the local MLS). I consider myself to be a very thorough Realtor.  I enjoy previewing each new house on the market (all listings, not just the listings that my company has).  I also really enj...

When they've found "THEIR" home, that is. You can take a buyer (or buyers) from house to house to every single house on the market, but when they find that one home, they just light up like a Christmas Tree (or the 4th of July, whichever you prefer).  No matter how you, the Realtor, feel about th...
