In a slowing buying cycle in the residential market I am always curious about the dynamics of why a buyer selects one house over the other. Beyond condition, location, and qualifying for the loan, I probed deeper. Buyers do buy on emotion and that's where their "gut feel" takes over. Many of the ...
Usually market area statistics make my eyes glaze over. I know this north Texas and Dallas market like the back of my hand and we seem to be always backwards from the east and west coast housing stories. Now, while many areas of the east and west coast are having plummeting prices, here in Big D ...
Someone once inquired to a group of business students, "What is the purpose of a business?" Many answers were given. Growing customers, producing a quality product, satisfying a need in the market. The right answer was, "to make money." If you've been in business over five years this will keep yo...
The public interacts with Realtors on a daily basis. Typically it's on site at a property that is listed or touring around looking at houses, condos, land, or commercial real estate.

Whether it applies to golf, or home buying, or home selling, to remodeling a home, or to building a real estate business, you have to BEGIN with the ENDPOINT in mind. A professio...
 I thought that for those buying a house, selling a house, or for that matter a REALTOR running their business, you enter the process without all the answers.You have to FIGURE IT OUT. As a fan of Sudoku, I think of it as solving a puzzle. For the buyer, which is the right house? For the seller, ...
I don't know about you with your work but with advancing technology and today's communication and computing devices supposedly helping us to get more out of our day, it "seems" like we have less time rather than more time than ever. How can we squeeze more time out of our day to get the things we...
REALTORs are often asked by buyers if they buy this house, "Will it be a good investment?" I often hear the answer snapped back that you can never go wrong with real estate and that it is a good investment and much better than renting. When did some real estate agents become financial planners an...
