What is the perfect showing? Let me tell you..   1. The house is just like the pictures, It doesn't mysteriously back up to a nuclear power plant or federal compound for the mentally insane. 2. The home is spotless, well kept and very organized. All the blinds are opened just enough to allow the ...
Most people can't paint worth a damn. Then you have those that can kinda sorta paint, but they think they're better than they are because too many people pay them too many unnecessary compliments. Finally, you have the good painter, but with the attitude problem. That's usually the husband and wi...
Let's discuss what a cash offer is...   One... cash means you have no loan, it means you can close sooner and it also means you are a safer buyer. That's usually it.   If you have cash you need to have common sense to go with it.   Cash means you have liquid money in an account that you can write...
I just got a call from a Buyers Agent who wanted to make a verbal offer on my listing for 200k. The property is listed for 350k. My first response was.. 1. We don't negotiate or accept verbal offers, per the seller and as noted on the MLS under Agent remarks. 2. Why is your buyer looking at 350k ...
I received my daily unsolicited email today. This one was from an overzealous Broker describing her listing.

I don't need a listing agent to reminding me to:   1. Turn off all lights. 2. lock all doors. 3. don't touch the a/c. 4. zip up your zipper if ...
From the Houston Association of Realtors: Please be on the alert that the "foot fetish creep" who was mentioned in the September issue of the Houston REALTOR® magazine article titled "Criminals, Creeps and Craigslist" has been apparently making calls to Bay Area REALTORS® in the last few days.  W...
The $8,000.00 Tax credit brought truckloads of buyers to the market. Many of our listings sold to buyers that qualified for this incentive, but now that the tax credit has finally expired many home sellers and buyers are left wondering if there are big enough incentives to help a crippled and slu...
1. Cash is king and with it not only can you get a good deal on the home, but you can also take the sellers soul, retirement and unborn grandchildren too. 2. You can have bad credit, no job, no money and buy a foreclosure for $500.00 all while eating a yellow lobster at Red Lobster. 3. When you r...
  A local homeowner called me today. She wanted to discuss the possibility of listing her home. She quickly told me that the last Realtor she met with told her.. "Nobody's buying houses." She even gave me the Realtors name.   According to the English dictionary, the word "Nobody" means: no person...
