Interestingly, if you go back a couple or three years in real estate, you might remember when homes hit the market and stayed there on average 30-60 days. I know that's hard to believe, but its true. There was also plenty of inventory for buyers to choose from and unicorns were plentiful.Yesterda...
I have an investor who buys, fixes up, and resells homes. We were talking the other day before we listed and he was telling me he remove a wall in his latest venture. He does a really nice job on his renovations, but I was a bit worried. He said he also added a 4th bedroom.So, when I went to do l...
Yesterday I had the fun of stopping at my local Ford dealer to ask about the backup camera on my 2020 Explorer. It seems to be working about half the time. I walked over to a young lady and asked her about the issue. It seems that the 2020 Fords all have this issue and there are 60,000 backup cam...

Born on NC to mid-western parents, i think my reactions are somewhere between fast and slow. When I moved to New York after college, I found that I spoke faster, ate faster, just lived faster. I remember talking to the corporate office in NC and wondering why it took them so long to form a senten...
As if this real estate market is not crazy enough, I just spoke to an agent about a unique situation developing. This listing agent just had an offer terminated on their listing by a buyer who is making multiple offers on several different homes at the same time. This strategy has recently come a...
The Real estate market has been in hyper-drive now for the better part of a year. It has been driven by a scarcity of homes for sale on the market. Even before the pandemic we were faced with a shortage of homes to sell. The market responded by bidding up the prices of existing homes.At one point...
Why is it that when you decide to write a blog nothing comes to mind, but when you are too busy to write multiple ideas flood in? Why is it that when you finally decide to give up on a listing, it receives multiple offers? Why is it that when you finally leave the house for that long overdue vaca...
