Here we are folks, the end of another year. It's hard for me to believe 2006 is over. Seems like the older I get the quicker the time goes by. I've been spending the day going over market statistics for last year and getting my head around some new strategies for my business next year. My intenti...
So, pull up a chair and let's talk about the consumer on ActiveRain. As many of you may already know, the consumer has arrived. They are reading and they are commenting on our posts. I personally have several that are regular readers and participants on my posts and it is a wonderful thing. It's ...
Lately, as anyone knows who has been reading my Blog, I have been dealing a lot with short sales and pre-foreclosure listings. Since I am not an attorney and cannot give legal advice, I always recommend to these Sellers, that they seek competent legal counsel. Most do. In addition to this, I give...
There's been a couple of posts, recently, about alternative ways for Realtors to be compensated. One idea, put forth on ActiveRain, by Brian Brady and then by Jeff Corbett, is compensation based on performance. I guess the reasoning behind this is that we, as Realtors, would have an incentive to ...
I must have stupid written across my forehead this week. First, I had the buyer who called in trying to arrange her own showings. Then I had my Seller calling me, with the disguised voice. And yesterday I had one that is the biggest mystery of all.About two weeks ago, I closed on one of my listin...
Have you ever had one of your Sellers call you and pretend they were a Buyer? Well I did yesterday. I'm not 100% positive, but I am about 98% sure that is was one of my own Sellers checking up on me. I could tell that whoever it was, was disguising their voice, and the questions that were being a...
Help! Call 911! Well, one of my closings for this week is dying a slow death. I just hate it when that happens. We were supposed to close last Friday, then extended until today, only to find out Wells Fargo has denied the loan due to the Buyer's debt ratio being to high by 1%. Only 1%! Seemingly,...
Hello one and all. This is not a meme post. Just thought I would throw that in here. Anyway, I wrote a post on Friday about NOT using your house as an ATM machine, since then I have had a couple more very interesting calls on how NOT to treat Real Estate. First, I want to mention, in case any con...
Tomorrow, I'm placing a home on the market, that is going to require a short sale. Seems like I'm getting an awful lot of these lately. This is one where I just don't understand what some folks are thinking. Nice young family, who were first time homebuyers just about 2 years ago. They bought a g...
This past Monday morning I was sitting on my adjustable, vibrating, craftmatic, temperpedic bed enjoying my morning coffee with breakfast (toast), that TLW delivers to me every morning, "working" on ActiveRain, when my phone rang. "Good morning Tutas Towne Realty, this is Broker Bryant your local...
