I have been blessed to have several sharp new agents coming to work with me. Where do they their leads to start off? From my listings . Our prices for our current listings start at $123,900 and go to a million and everything in between . Now, I know, in many areas, there is no such thing as listi...
I was speaking to several bright new agents who are trying to get started on the right foot. I commented that every buyer has different needs. In order to fill those needs, we, as their agents, have to determine the best choices within their budget. Many times , the buyers themselves don't unders...
Anybody who has even considered buying a new home needs to act now!. With 30 year fixed rates hovering in the mid 3's and 15 year rates even lower, this is prime buying opportunity. At the risk of sounding like a used car salesman, these rates will not last and we will not see these low rates aga...
I recently hired a new agent, so, I was in the process of training him to do things the way I feel they should be done. One of the first things that I told him is that nobody wants to be "sold" anything. This got me to thinking about what a valuable lesson this is. As Realtors, it is our job to s...

"I was told that I could get a 2.75% mortgage from this lender"You can get this rate from any lender. That is if you pay enough discount points and origination fees. (That is in the fine print) I get letters in the mail from lenders offering the low rates. People outside of the business may not k...
How much is my home worth? The Jones', down the street sold their's for 450k, so mine should go for about that. How does your home relate to the Jones' home? Is it the same size? Does it have a 3 car garage like theirs? Was it built about the same time? Does it have the same updates and amenities...
Winter is here again with all of it's ravages, even here, in the south. We must remind our clients to leave faucets dripping at night, when it is the coldest. I talked on this subject last year, but we are back again. Those who have the old copper systems: copper breaks, when frozen and thawed ou...
The Internet and its vast access to information is a great help to everyone , including those of us who practice Real Estate. There are, however, some pitfalls for potential buyers out there.   As is my policy,I will not mention any website or brand by name in a derogatory sense in a blog, but, I...
