getting closer I like to think that people want me to work for them.  I always tell buyers and sellers that they are the boss of me.  Making them feel important is something that we all should do.   For Sellers I give them a Seller guide and in it on the first page is a Guarantee of Service.  It states :  If for any reason, you are not 100% satisfied with my service, just let me know and I promise to correct the situation within 24 hours.  If the remedy is not satisfactory, I will release them from the listing agreement with no further obligations.  I am so sure you will be happy with My Service, I guarantee it. I have only lost one seller in since 1997 and that was a situation of he was a heavy smoker and his house smell to much like smoke.  I made the suggestion that he smokes in the ...

Selling stats in 55448 Coon RapidsHello Sellers, let's take a closer look at some important real estate metrics that can help you understand the current market conditions and make informed decisions when selling your property.First, let's talk about the Months Supply of Inventory, which is currently at 1.05. This metric indicates how long it would take for all the current listings to sell based on the current pace of sales. A lower number like 1.05 suggests a seller's market, where demand is high compared to supply.Next, we have the 12-Month Change in Months of Inventory, which has increased by +12.9%. This means that the market has seen a slight increase in inventory over the past year, which could indicate a shifting market towards a more balanced state.The Median Days Homes are On th...

Home Buyers and Sellers need their own representation in the typically largest financial transaction of their lifetimes. Well things change in August 2024 when rules change as part of a National Association of REALTORS® settlement where Home Sellers must compensate their Broker and REALTOR® and Home Buyers must compensate their Broker and REALTOR®.  In the past Home Sellers and their real estate broker were compensated by the Seller and shared that commission with the Buyer's Broker.Does that mean a Home Buyer has to go at it alone unrepresented. No, that is not a wise thing to do. Rules will be clarified by August as various state REALTOR® associations  are developing new buyer broker agreements that set forth the new arrangements. A home seller has their agent and a home buyer should ...

Climate change is impacting where people buy homes. As the experts at the National Association of Realtors (NAR) explain: “Sixty-three percent of people who have moved since the pandemic began say they believe climate change is—or will be—an issue in the place they currently live.” If you’re planning to move, climate change is something you might want to consider, no matter where you are. A recent study from Realtor.com helps put the growing impact climate change is having on real estate into perspective (see below):   So, how can you be sure your investment is safe from the elements? For starters, work with a local real estate agent to understand the likelihood of your future home being exposed to hazards like wind, floods, and wildfires. Your agent will know the area and be able to t...

Avoiding foreclosure requires proactive steps and a clear understanding of your options. This blog offers essential advice on managing finances, communicating with lenders, and exploring assistance programs to help homeowners stay in their homes.Have a super fantastic week!Joe Jackson, Realtor-KWCP Behind in mortgage payments?  I am sure your home is worth  saving, and likely has equity in it.  Here are my suggestions: 1.  Do NOT avoid the calls from your lender.  Be honest and direct with them, and see if they have options for you.  Many lenders do.  Avoiding them only accelerates bad things. 2.  If you have the means to borrow from a savings, retirement or other account, I suggest you do that.  Get current as fast as possible. If you can also get part time employment, in addition to y...
